Anna Faris leaves the show in the middle of a contract. The cast of the show is still digesting the fact of her departure. Christy’s and Bonnie’s chemistry was something that made the show so funny and we can say that they were the backbone of the show.

Chuck Lorre’s productions, CBS and Warner Bros TV told that they were so proud of the stories they had been able to tell during Anna’s seven years with them. They wished Anna all the best and thanked her for her beautiful portrayal.

One surprising thing is that her role will not be recast. Allison Janney in turn will be the one as the lead character.

What do fans expect from Anna?

Her fans wanted her to become a lawyer and to be succeeding as in the seventh season. It is very hard for the fans to imagine the show without Christy. But the fans trust Chuck Lorre’s Brilliance. Chuck Lorre’s Productions seems to have the spirit of “The show must go on.”

Anna reported in one of her interviews that the past seven-year on Mom had been some of the most fulfilling and rewarding of her career. She was thankful to Chuck, the writers, and her castmates for creating a truly wonderful work experience. While her journey as Christy has come to an end allowing her to pursue new opportunities, she will be watching the next season and rooting for her TV family.

We may get the impression that COVID-19 might be the reason behind her leaving the show but that’s not so. She yearns to explore more possibilities and opportunities and decides to move on. Anna is also producing a movie Summer Madness in which she’s also starred. The role, this time, will be challenging as she is ready to play a double role portraying the twin leading characters. The production was about to start in the spring of 2020 but perhaps halted due to the COVID-19 outbreak.


Anna Faris did sign a two-year contract in 2019 for Mom and now she had decided to leave the show probably this may concern her film and equally, it might have another reason too. But one thing for sure is that Christy will be missed in the Mom. We hope she comes back in season 9.
