While the Internet is still spinning about the release of the new Star Wars movie, Melissa McCarthy is "shocked and heartbroken" over the cancellation of her hit TV series 'Mike & Molly'.
“I was shocked and heartbroken when @CBS canceled #MikeAndMolly,” McCarthy tweeted Monday. “I would have shot this show for 50 more years. I’ll miss my 2nd family.”
In a Facebook post, Rondi Reed announced that CBS is cancelling Mike & Molly
which co-stars Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy.
“Before you hear it elsewhere (and some already have) this is the Final and 6th Season of ‘MIKE & MOLLY’ on CBS,” wrote Reed, who plays Peggy on the show.
“It is also a shortened season (13 episodes) after the announced full renewal of 22 episodes back in March by the network,” she continued. “We are done taping as of January 27th 2016 and I am not sure exactly when/if the episodes will all be aired. The network has it’s reasons, and I will not get into a debate, discussion, or campaign to get them to change their minds. Other venues were explored by WB and Bonanza Productions (Chuck Lorre) after CBS announced their intentions, but did not turn up a future for our show. It is a fact and we have known for a few weeks.”
The CBS sitcom was extremely popular and averaged 8.4 million viewers per episode after airing their first season in 2010.
