‘Mom’ Star Anna Faris Exits CBS Series Ahead of Season 8
quote:

Anna Faris is leaving the CBS multi-cam sitcom “Mom” ahead of the show’s upcoming eighth season.

“The past seven years on ‘Mom’ have been some of the most fulfilling and rewarding of my career,” Faris said in a statement. “I’m so thankful to Chuck, the writers, and my amazing castmates for creating a truly wonderful work experience. While my journey as Christy has come to an end, allowing me to pursue new opportunities, I’ll be watching next season and rooting for my TV family.”

Per an individual with knowledge of the decision, Faris wanted to pursue other opportunities beyond the show. News of her exit comes just days ahead of the show beginning production on Season 8, with cameras set to start rolling on Sept. 14. Production is getting a late start this year due to the shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“From the inception of ‘Mom,’ Anna was the first and only choice for the role of Christy,” Warner Bros. Television, CBS, and Chuck Lorre Productions said in a joint statement. “We are so proud of the stories we have been able to tell during Anna’s seven years with us. We wish Anna all the best, and we thank her for her beautiful portrayal.”

It is unclear exactly how Faris’ character will be written out of the show, given her central role in the cast, but it will be addressed in the first episode of Season 8.

They need to just cancel the show.

That show is unwatchable as it was.

I wonder what she does instead? If she has a good project lined up then great but without that in my back pocket I would keep collecting the sitcom checks and negotiate for a part of the syndication money.

McLean Stevenson thinks this is a wise career move.

It’s crazy what is on broadcast TV these days. I don’t know one person in my actual life that watches anything on it regularly anymore.

I remember the whole neighborhood would come to my house to watch American idol. And we used to watch bones every week as well and a few other shows.

They are filming a new scream movie. She needs to be available for the next scary movie to make fun of that scream.

Well she isn't getting any younger but this is an odd time to pull the plug. They were negotiating for a new contract at the end of last season and got renewed for two more years. That would have been the time to say no thanks.

If I am a Hollywood executive and I have my choice of casting Faris, who just caused a studio to blow a huge chunk of cash and then backed out, or someone else... I'm thinking someone else is going to get the call.

Allison Janney alone makes it unwatchable for me.

Seriously, it had a good run, far exceeding its shelf life.

Not as bad as 2 Broke Girls, which lasted 5 more seasons than it deserved.

A buddy of mine worked on the show for a couple of years, before going up to Vancouver and working on some of those Berlanti shows. He said catering on the show was awesome, and then Allison Janney started getting some major Hollywood roles, and then catering suddenly became fantastic. I always chuckle recalling that story to myself

She was The House Bunny, after all.



Easy on the eyes, I always thought. Her attitude was a bit of a turn on, but I don't think she actually was in the 'hot ' category. Maybe just me.

She was fine AF in House Bunny. She says her diet/exercise routine leading up to wrapping that movie was the most miserable experience in her life, and looking that good isn't worth the effort.
