Mom SEASON 8 Premiere Date Set By CBS
About Mom TV Show
"Mom" returns for season 8 on Thursday, November 5th. Here's everything we know about the upcoming season of this popular CBS sitcom:
What is "Mom" about?
Per CBS: "Bonnie must learn to adjust without her daughter and former-roommate, Christy, around. With a chaotic past behind her and a newly empty nest, she focuses on her marriage to her husband, Adam, and on what she wants to be now that she’s finally grown up. Now more than ever, Bonnie depends on the support of her friends, including the wise Marjorie, the wealthy and sometimes misguided Jill, the overly emotional Wendy and her foster sister, Tammy, who was recently released from prison. Collectively, they help each other overcome their mistakes and stay sober in the face of whatever life throws at them."
What can we expect for "Mom" Season 8?
"Mom" season eight will look different than prior seasons. Anna Faris announced in September that she will be departing from the show after seven seasons to pursue other opportunities. In a statement, she wrote, "The past seven years on Mom have been some of the most fulfilling and rewarding of my career. I’m so thankful to Chuck [Lorre], the writers, and my amazing castmates for creating a truly wonderful work experience."
Faris will not be replaced, meaning Allison Janney's character, Bonnie, will struggle to come to terms with no longer living with her daughter. Co-creator Gemma Baker told TVLine, "Christy’s absence will have a ripple effect on Bonnie throughout the season. Part of Bonnie’s journey this year will be to figure out what she wants to do now that she’s actually grown up. . . . With all the alone time, [Bonnie and Adam] discover that they actually really like each other. So much so that they try to help another couple achieve their level of happiness to mixed results."
We'll likely see Bonnie and Jill's relationships go through changes this season as emotions get more complicated.
Who stars in "Mom" Season 4?
The cast includes Allison Janney as Bonnie Plunkett, Jaime Pressly as Jill, Mimi Kennedy as Marjorie, Beth Hall as Wendy, William Fichtner as Adam, Kristen Johnston as Tammy.
When does "Mom" Season 4 premiere?
Watch the season premiere on CBS on November 5th at 9/8c.
Will there be a "Mom" Season 9?
