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)."
