Anna Faris, one of the most talented comic actresses, will not be returning CBS comedy series ‘Mom’ for its upcoming eighth season.
The actress, portraying ‘Christy Jolene Plunkett’ in the series, created by Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky, and Gemma Baker, announced her exit through the following statement:
“The past seven years on Mom have been some of the most fulfilling and rewarding of my career. I’m so thankful to Chuck, the writers, and my amazing castmates for creating a truly wonderful work experience. While my journey as Christy has come to an end, allowing me to pursue new opportunities, I’ll be watching next season and rooting for my TV family.”
By leaving the show, which has been nominated for 10 Emmy awards, Farris left Allison Janney as the sole lead. As known, the series focuses on the two main characters that are represented by Faris and Janney.
Warner Bros. Television, CBS, and Chuck Lorre Productions also used a joint statement on Farris’ leaving:
“From the inception of Mom, Anna was the first and only choice for the role of Christy. We are so proud of the stories we have been able to tell during Anna’s seven years with us. We wish Anna all the best, and we thank her for her beautiful portrayal.”
However, it is still unclear whether Faris’ character will be written out of the show or portrayed by another actor.
