CBS has given early renewals to comedy series Mom and Mike & Molly, meaning that all of Chuck Lorre’s series on the network will be back next season. (Flagship The Big Bang Theory is one year into a three-season pickup.)
The network is yet to confirm the renewal but cast members and writers from both Warner Bros. TV-produced shows have been tweeting about getting the pickup news today.
Mom, picked up for Season 3, and Mike & Molly, ordered for Season 6, join several freshman dramas CBS already has renewed for next season, including Scorpion, NCIS: New Orleans and Madam Secretary. Of CBS’ freshman comedy class, The Odd Couple has a shot with a promising Week 3 ratings uptick.
