Rondi Reed, one of the stars of CBS’s Mike & Molly, beat the network to the punch–announcing the cancellation of Mike & Molly via her Facebook page.
Rondi Reed didn’t just beat the network to their announcement, she also gave fans the reasons why the show was cancelled.
“The network has it’s reasons, and I will not get into a debate, discussion, or campaign to get them to change their minds. Other venues were explored by WB and Bonanza Productions (Chuck Lorre) after CBS announced their intentions, but did not turn up a future for our show,” she wrote. “It is a fact and we have known for a few weeks. I remain extremely grateful to have been a part of this and to have worked with a fabulous bunch of folks over the years. I have learned a lot about many things, including the Business we call Show. Also grateful for all the fans and for the personal support I have received over the (almost) 6 seasons. Stewart Talent has guided me every step of the way on this journey and for that I am also forever grateful,” she wrote.
Mike & Molly stars Melissa McCarthy and Billy Gardell as Mike and Molly. The couple met at a Chicago Overeaters Anonymous meeting and fell in love. Rondi Reed plays the role of Mike’s mom, Peggy. The show’s sixth season will begin in January. It was first aired in 2010.

Are you a Mike & Molly fan? Surely Melissa McCarthy will continue gracing the big screen with her hilarious presence, but Billy Gardell and Rondi Reed might not be so lucky.
Are you sad to see this sitcom end?
