Fans are still reeling from the news that CBS comedy series Mom is coming to an end.

"I had the great fortune of being asked to join a show called @mom_cbs in its second season 7 years ago," the actress wrote on Instagram, adding that she didn't know of the series beforehand.

"But I knew with Chuck Lorre at the helm and @allisonbjanney and @annafaris ⁣as the leads it must be something special. So I jumped in head first not knowing what I was in for. Boy did I hit the jackpot. Being able to tell the stories of these beautifully flawed women supporting each other through recovery from addiction, loss, love, failures, wins, getting older and learning to love themselves has been one of the greatest honors of my life," the My Name is Earl alum shared.

"It goes without saying that when you spend as much time together as we have over these last 8 years (7 for me) you can’t help but fall in love with each other and become a real life support group both on and off the screen," she continued.

"The unconditional love I have for everyone from the cast & writers to our crew is a love I’ll take with me for the rest of my life. It was truly an honor and pleasure to be a part of a show that has helped so many people in ways no other show ever has."

Pressly went on to thank those associated with the show for such a great run.

“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."

"We are forever grateful to our brilliant cast and guest stars, wonderful writers, and amazing crew for going on this journey with us.”
