MOM - Season 7
The seventh season of the sitcom Mom began on September 26, 2019 and concluded on April 16, 2020 on CBS in the United States. The season is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with series creators Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker serving as executive producer. The season finished with 20 episodes, a reduction from the planned 22 episodes that was forced by the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the final season to feature Anna Faris as Christy, with "Big Sad Eyes and an Antique Hot Dog" becoming the show's unintended season finale/farewell episode for Faris.
MOM - Season 7
Christy (Anna Faris) is still sober and has her life mostly back on track, though she's continually tested by her mother, Bonnie (Allison Janney). Together, the two work to overcome their mistakes and build a better future. Now, Christy is well on her way to becoming a lawyer, while Bonnie is in a healthy romantic relationship and has just married Adam (William Fichtner). Through it all, Christy and Bonnie rely on their support system from AA, including the wise Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy), the wealthy and sometimes misguided Jill (Jaime Pressly), the overly emotional Wendy (Beth Hall), and the loudmouth but sweet Tammy (Kristen Johnston), who was upgraded to series regular status for this season. Collectively, they help each other stay sober in the face of whatever life throws at them. The episodes are usually titled with two odd topics that are mentioned in that episode.
It's moments like these that showcase just how far these characters have come in seven seasons. Yet, while they might have gotten stronger, the comedy is still there. Bonnie is still going to try to get the beach house keys even if she has to die trying.
Episodes like these truly highlight how far these characters have come in seven seasons. The heavy moments that focus primarily on character growth with a few moments or silent gags are a great way to strike a balance in tone.
Getting a few bits of backstory about where she's from, her lesbian moms, and her seafaring childhood is rich and rewarding to this character that has been on this show for a long time. I am looking forward to getting a little more from Wendy in the season to come.
Prior to starring in "The Estate," Faris starred as Christy Plunkett on "Mom" for seven seasons, shocking fans by announcing her departure from the show just a few days before production on the eighth season was set to begin.
CBC, the Canadian broadcaster who air seasons before they come to streaming, has not officially announced that the show has been renewed. However, Workin' Moms Season 7 is listed as in production on a trusted industry website in Canada.
Catherine Reitman, the star of Workin' Moms, announced the last season in summer 2021, meaning an official announcement of Season 7 is likely to come in the next few weeks. Until then, here are all the signs that the show has already been renewed.
CBS has not announced the release date for the new episodes, but the seasons so far have followed a pattern. So far, all seasons have aired between December to February of their respective years on CBC, with the seasons then arriving in full on Netflix 28 days after the season finale has aired in Canada. As all but one season of the show has ended on CBC in the first half of April, Season 7 is expected to follow suit, meaning a release date of May 2023 is very likely.
Faris and Janney are believed to be currently making under $200,000 an episode each. That is well below the $1 million an episode the five main stars of Big Bang were getting by Season 8. Big Bang is one of those singular giant hits that are in a league of their own. But Mom has been a strong performer for CBS and WBTV. In addition to its solid ratings on the network, Mom, which crossed the 100 episode mark last season, has been sold to TV Land and CMT in off-network syndication and to the Tribune stations in broadcast syndication.
Netflix first picked up the global rights to the show in 2019, with three seasons released throughout that year onto the service; season 4 was then added in 2020, season 5 in 2021, and the sixth season in 2022.
The daughter of the late Hollywood director Ivan Reitman writes, directs and stars in the sitcom that launched on the CBC network in Canada in 2017, before Netflix picked up the Canadian import two years later. The final season will debut on CBC and CBC Gem in winter 2023, followed by a release on Netflix elsewhere globally.
Overall, I really enjoyed the seventh season of Mom, the mix of comedy and drama in the continuing story of these women is brilliant as ever and I eagerly await the next season! Bring on season 8.
In season 7, Christy (Anna Faris) continues to pursue her goal of becoming a lawyer while working hard in law school and a chaotic internship. Of course, Christy must also make a paycheck at the restaurant, stay on top of her sobriety and deal with the daily dramas of her mother, Bonnie (Allison Janney).
Prior to season 7, Mom landed a two-season renewal from CBS, ensuring the sitcom would remain on the air through at least season 8. The new season is expected to debut on CBS in its regular Thursday at 9/8c timeslot sometime during the 2020-2021 television season.
The extra-long gap in between seasons, if there should be an extra-long gap, gives fans plenty of time to check back in with the gang before new episodes premiere. Since season 7 was one of the strongest of the series, a rewatch on Hulu is the perfect way to tee up season 8.
The CBC sitcom Working Moms debuted in 2017 and was nominated for the International Emmy Award for Best Comedy Series for two consecutive years. Netflix brought the laugh riot all the way from Canada for the whole world to see, and now the show has already concluded six seasons! Navigating the many challenges of motherhood as a working parent is not exactly a laugh riot. Still, the show has depicted everything from postpartum depression to abortion with a sense of humour rarely seen on TV!
The show stars Catherine Reitman as Kate Foster, Dani Kind as Anne Carlson, Enuka Okuma as Sloane Mitchell (foe turned friend/ally of the core group in seasons five and six), Juno Rinaldi as Frankie Coyne (who left the show after five seasons to pursue other projects behind the scenes ), Jessalyn Wanlim as Jenny Matthews, and Sarah McVie as Valerie "Val" Szalinsky. Reitman is also the show creator and co-producer, alongside her real-life husband, Philip Sternberg, who also plays her on-screen husband, Nathan Foster.
Adulthood is hard as it is; without friends, it tends to suck a little bit more. So far, we have seen Kate and Anne playing cheerleaders for each other. It would be interesting to see where they take their friendship within the burgeoning premises of their growing personhood in season seven.
It would also be interesting to see Sloan soften on the edges as she has become a new mother at the end of season six. Sloan definitely is the kind of character who would be great at disciplining even a toddler and can strap on her kid and bring her to meetings where grown men regale in her expertise and startling efficiency.

"Audrey Hepburn and a Jalepeño Pepper" -- While Bonnie struggles to enjoy her perfect honeymoon with Adam, Christy makes some questionable changes at the bar while they're away, on the seventh season premiere of MOM, Thursday, Sept. 26 (9:01-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Mom has come to an end after eight seasons on CBS, and the final episode was an emotional endeavor that included an emotional speech from Allison Janney's Bonnie that surely tugged at the heartstrings of many fans. What the finale didn't include that certainly would have brought some emotional outpouring was the return of Christy, but Anna Faris remained absent. The finale didn't even deliver an update on Christy at Georgetown, but fortunately, showrunner Gemma Baker has opened up about what's happening with Christy beyond the series finale that didn't feature her.
Now that Mom has come to an end, fans can only look ahead to the future, and the good news is that the summer TV lineup is packed with some solid options. Then again, if you're in the mood for a Mom blast from the past when Christy was still in the mix, you can find the first seven seasons streaming on Hulu now.
Anna Faris is gearing up for an all new season of CBS' Mom, and she is buzzing when asked about it. PopCulture.com recently chatted with the actress about her partnership with Clorox and DonorsChoose.org, and she took a second to dish on what's to come on the Chuck Lorre-produced sitcom.
"We've completed two episodes. I go back next week. I don't know exactly what's going to happen," Faris, who plays lead character Christy Plunkett, told PopCulture.com via phone. "I wish I could tell you what was going to happen. I learned back in Season 1; I asked Chuck Lorre, 'Can you tell me where are we going?' and he said, 'Well, you can ask me anything, but I'm not going to tell you.' So, I don't know what this season has in store for our characters, but we have brilliant writers, and I love doing it. I feel so fortunate."
"I wanted to partner up with Clorox for this back to school season, for a couple of reasons. One, I feel like I'm a sanitary person, but I'm not the tidiest person. So, I use Clorox wipes all the time because they're so easy and they kill 99.9 percent of germs," Faris said.
In the CBS sitcom "Mom," which aired on the network from 2013-2021, Anna Faris plays working mother Christy Plunkett. Christy struggles to support her two children and repair her estranged relationship with her mother, both of whom are battling addiction. COVID-19 concerns cut Season 7 short, leaving the network unable to film the final two episodes of the season. Things continued to go downhill from there. The show was canceled after Season 8 aired, mainly due to the sudden and unexpected departure of one of the show's principal actors. 041b061a72
