The cast of Mom is back on set. The actors on the series started filming episodes for season eight of the CBS sitcom on Monday, and Janney took to her Twitter account to share a video showing off the new COVID-19 protocols for the cast and crew.
The series is starting production with one less cast member. It was revealed earlier this month that star Anna Faris has left the series. Her character will not be seen in season eight. She played Janney’s daughter on the series, and her exit will be handled during the season ahead.
Per Deadline, Mimi Kennedy, Beth Hall, and Jaime Pressly joined Janney in the Twitter video. Check it out below.

A premiere date for season eight of Mom on CBS has not been set but the network previously announced the sitcom would return sometime this fall.
What do you think? Are you a fan of the Mom TV show on CBS? Will you continue to watch what is ahead without Faris’ character?
No, Kristy was not the glue! She was great but after she left it felt very real. She started her life. She became a lawyer. A success! And then there were 5 including Adam. I thought there would have been great stories there. Adam was hilarious with Bonnie. And you had The Cop and the blonde, Jill was just getting good! I think you should have stuck with it , you gave up too soon! The whole AA situation was so real for so many people. Very relatable, and I’m not an alcoholic. It was a really good series!

Really like this show and hope it continues as I look forward to it every week.
Christy was the glue. The Mom writers now have a long row to hoe! Quite frankly, I don’t think the show will continue to make it. Will watch only to see the storyline. Personally, I think the supporting characters are too eccentric. Christy was spot-on normal!
I’m going to watch but Anna Faris will be missed.
I’d love to see episodes with Christie as a child or teen. That way we could still enjoy the Christie character without Anna. It won’t be the same without the Bonnie/Christie banter.
You’re right about the banter!!….great chemistry!
I have watched Mom since the very first episode. I so enjoy this series that I have all 152 episodes recorded. I can’t imagine it without Christy. I will have to watch and see if the rest of the cast can carry it without her.
I just started watching reruns this summer and I’m kinda obsessed. Although it’s disappointing that Ana has decided to leave, I hope she finds new, satisfying projects. I used to get furious when actors left my fav tv shows but what’s the point. My anger won’t change things and this won’t change much for me considering I’ve only watched the olds ones so far anyway. I hope this doesn’t end up wrecking the sitcom for the other cast members and for fans. I hope Mom continues to be a top sitcom because the writing is really funny and the cast… Read more »
We love that show, will watch it anyway. But will miss Christie, Hopefully we can see more about the other cast members homes and situations. We really like TAMMY and would love to see more of her, possibly with the chef at the restaurant Christy worked at. That was hilarious. Also see more of Wendy and Jill. It is a very good comedy, the writers just need to get thinking up new story lines. But will be watching for sure.
Mom is Anna Farris character. Although she doesn’t have her children. Maybe call a bar and AA.
So much talent on this show even after Christy left. Would like to see more of Wendy this year. As long as Allison is there, it will be great.
I love mom and will always watch the show
I love mom and will always watch it
Obviously the original premise of the show is way out the window now. That was already true to some extent when Christy’s kids vanished, but definitely now with Christy herself gone.
Still a HELL of a lot of talent left in the cast, so they should be able to pull off a TV show…. but maybe they should change the name, as nobody’s really a “Mom” anymore (at least not to anybody who will be seen onscreen)
Sad that “Christy” is leaving but I do believe the SHOW CAN GO ON. Make sure “Adam” is part as he is just a hoot on this show. Increase his role! Can’t wait to see you all soon.
