I think it went downhill after one of the main characters left.
The hit CBS show Mom is officially ending. The season eight finale was set to be on May 6th, but now that will be the series finale.
Executive producers of the show stated, “From the beginning, we set out to tell stories about recovery from alcoholism and addiction that are rarely portrayed in a network comedy series. Whether it was the emotional reactions of the live audience on tape night inside Stage 20, or discussions at The White House regarding the opioid crisis, or the personal stories we continue to receive on social media, we take great pride in knowing ‘Mom’ has positively impacted so many lives.” They add, “We are forever grateful to our brilliant cast and guest stars, wonderful writers, and amazing crew for going on this journey with us.”
Anna Faris who played Christie left the series last year and it seemed to go downhill. Still, 8 years is a good run.
