‘Mom’: The Fate of Anna Faris’ Christy Revealed in Season 8 Premiere
The network announced on Wednesday that the sober comedy will close this spring with its series finale on Thursday, May 6th (at 9 / 8c). In a heartfelt Instagram post, Janney thanked the cast and crew, including executive producer Chuck Lorre; current associates Mimi Kennedy, Jaime Pressly, Kristen Johnston, Beth Hall, and William Fichtner; and former co-lead Anna Faris, who left the show before season eight.
« To have been part of mom for the past eight years – to show the laughter, love and hope that comes with recovery being able to go along – was one of the great honors of my life, « she wrote. “I would like to thank [executive producers] Chuck Lorre, Gemma Baker [and] Nick Bakay, and all of the writers for bringing these wonderfully flawed and lovable characters to life. I miss seeing all of your faces. And with these incredibly talented actors that I got to play with every day !!! Mimi, Jaime, Kristen, Beth and the coolest man in the world, Bill Fichtner. And of course Anna Faris. « [Director] Jamie Widdoes for your patience and dedication and your tremendous talent in steering this ship! » Our entire crew, your laughter, your love, and your dedication to this show made it a pleasure to come to work. And last but not least, all of our extraordinary fans !!! Thank you for all of your support over the years. “
Mama’s eighth season was the first (and now only) season without Faris, who played Janney’s on-screen daughter Christy. When it became known that she was leaving last September, Faris released a statement that read in part: “The past seven years with Mom have been some of the most fulfilling and rewarding of my career. I’m so grateful to Chuck [Lorre], the writers, and my great castmates for making my work experience really wonderful. «
After Faris’ departure, Christy was sent to Georgetown Law School in Washington DC on a full scholarship.
Mom has become a drastically different show than the one that premiered in 2013. The multi-cam focused originally focused on Christy’s life as a freshly sober single mother as she tried to raise a pregnant teenage daughter, Violet (Sadie Calvano), and a son. Roscoe (Blake Garrett Rosenthal) with the help of her previously estranged mother, Bonnie (Janney). The show eventually shifted focus away from Christy’s children (who were written off entirely from the show) and towards Christy and Bonnie’s AA group – made up of Marjorie (Kennedy), Jill (Pressly), Wendy (Hall) and Tammy (Johnston) -. and Bonnie’s relationship with future husband Adam (Fichtner). Janney is the last remaining regular series from season 1.
