Los Angeles - Melissa McCarthy's TV show has been cancelled.

Mike & Molly - which Melissa has starred in since 2010 - will end after its upcoming sixth season, which has been cut to just 13 episodes.

Rondi Reed - who plays Mike's mother Peggy on the show - wrote on Facebook: "This is the final and sixth season of Mike & Molly on CBS.... We are done taping as of 27 January. Other venues were explored by Warner Bros. TV and Chuck Lorre's Bonanza Productions after CBS announced their intentions, but did not turn up a future for our show (sic)."

During her time on the show Melissa has seen her film career go from strength-to-strength, with an Oscar nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for Bridesmaids; in 2011.

Earlier this week she also received her first ever Golden Globes nomination for her role in the movie Spy and will compete against Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Schumer, Dame Maggie Smith and Lily Tomlin for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical.
