Mike and Molly: Canceled According to Series Co-Star

at .

Well, Melissa McCarthy fans, it seems like it's time to get your fix on the big screen.

Or maybe she'll have time to do a cameo in that Gilmore Girls revival now...Accordind to co-star Rhondi Reed, who plays Mike's mother on Mike & Molly, the series has been canceled and will finish filming in January.

To see more details from her post, which was quite lengthy and fact-filled, read on.

A Day Apart - Mike & Molly

"Before you hear it elsewhere (and some already have) this is the final and sixth season of Mike & Molly on CBS. It is also a shortened season (13 episodes) after the announced full renewal of 22 episodes back in March by the network. We are done taping as of Jan. 27, 2016, and I am not sure exactly when/if the episodes will all be aired.

The network has its 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 series joins 2 Broke Girls on January 6 and will run as part of a new Wednesday comedy block for seven weeks. That will leave showrunner Chuck Lorre with two shows on the air, Mom and the number one comedy, The Big Bang Theory

Will you be sad to see the show go?
