The NCIS series: New Orleans and Mom, shown by CBS, were recently canceled, according to the station’s official announcement released to the press.
Mom, starring Allison Janney and Anna Faris, had eight seasons in her career and will end in May this year. NCIS: New Orleans, an NCIS spin-off, will have no new episodes after the conclusion of its 7th season, currently airing on CBS. The outcome is also scheduled for May.
“It was an immense and sincere pleasure to be able to work on this series, with this incredible cast and crew for over 150 episodes,” said Jan Nash and Christopher Silber, showrunners and executive producers for NCIS: New Orleans, in a statement.
“As disappointed as we are with the end of production, we couldn’t be more proud of the work we did and we are entirely grateful to the spectacular and resilient Crescent City that has embraced us for seven wonderful years,” they added.
Mom’s departure from actress Anna Faris may have caused cancellation
Mom debuted in 2013 on the CBS grid as a comedy that investigated a dysfunctional relationship between mother and daughter. Created by Chuck Lorre, the same as The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, the production showed how the adversities between the two could be overcome in their own way.
However, last year, Anna Faris announced that she would be saying goodbye to production even before the season 8 premiere and caused many fans to mourn the loss. Perhaps, due to the original lack of characterization, the series was canceled even with Allison Janney as the protagonist.
“For the past eight years, we have had the great honor of bringing these wonderful characters to life, sharing their struggles and triumphs with millions of viewers each week,” said the creator via a statement released to the media.
The last episode of the series is scheduled to be released on May 6.
