Axed: Mike and Molly
CBS confirms what Melissa McCarthy had already told us.
Following recent speculation, CBS has now confirmed the end for the sitcom, Mike & Molly.
“These decisions are really challenging,” CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller said. “I have tremendous respect for (executive producers) Chuck Lorre, Al Higgins, (stars) Melissa McCarthy and Billy Gardell and the entire cast.”
Cast members Rondi Reed, Gardell and McCarthy recently took to social media to advise that the comedy had not been renewed.
“I was shocked and heartbroken when @CBS canceled #MikeAndMolly. I would have shot this show for 50 more years. I’ll miss my 2nd family,” McCarthy wrote.
Gardell, out things straight on Twitter: “Mike and Molly returns Jan 6, it will be our last episodes. There are 13 of them. Thank you everyone who supported us,” he wrote.
It airs in Australia on Nine.
