Sedgwick announced the cancellation on Twitter:
Before it goes out there in the world I want my fans to be the first to know that next Wednesday will be the last episode of “Call Your Mother”. You guys have been so wonderful to tune in every week, or every other week or every two weeks! The rollout was nuts! 🤦♀️❤️ pic.twitter.com/vKr4FBrf07

Call Your Mother, whose pilot could not be produced last spring because of the pandemic, received a straight-to-series order in May 2020. Filmed during the pandemic, it launched in January and has had a frequently interrupted run after the first four episodes, with new installments a couple of weeks apart.
Written and executive produced by The New Adventures of Old Christine creator Lizer, Call Your Mother centers on an empty-nester mom, Jean Raines (Sedgwick), who wonders how she ended up alone while her children live their best lives thousands of miles away. She decides her place is with her family, and as she reinserts herself into their lives, her kids realize they might actually need her more than they thought.
In addition to Sedgwick, cast also includes Rachel Sennott, Joey Bragg, Patrick Brammall, Emma Caymares and Austin Crute.
Call Your Mother is produced by Sony Pictures Television & ABC Studios. ABC Studios is a part of Disney Television Studios, alongside 20th Century Fox Television and Fox 21 Television Studios.
