Chuck Lorre fans can stop biting their nails. It has been announced that "Mom" and "Mike & Molly" will be joining "The Big Bang Theory" in CBS for another season. The Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings sitcom "2 Broke Girls" will also be returning for another season.
Even before CBS made an official announcement regarding the early renewals, many cast members and writers from the comedy shows tweeted about getting picked up for another season.
Reno Wilson, who plays Carl in "Mike & Molly", re-tweeted a photo posted by producer Julie Bean, which was captioned: "This is what getting picked up for another season looks like!! #mikeandmolly Season 6 here we come!" The photo was later taken down. However, Wilson also tweeted the Variety article about "Mom" and "Mike & Molly" getting picked up, and wrote: "Woo Hoo!!"
Blake G. Rosenthal, who plays Rosco in "Mom" tweeted: "IT'S OFFICIAL!! @MomCBS has been picked up for season 3!! @AllisonBJanney @AnnaKFaris @sadiecalvano @mattjonesisdead #family". This was re-tweeted by his TV sister Sadie Calvano, who plays Violet.
"Mom" will be entering season 3, while "Mike & Molly" has been ordered for season 6. With these two, and "The Big Bang Theory", Chuck Lorre has three series in CBS for another season. CBS had already renewed dramas "NCIS: New Orleans", "Madam Secretary" and "Scorpion" for another season.
Meanwhile the "2 Broke Girls", Kat Dennings who plays Max and Beth Behrs who plays Caroline tweeted, "See you in season 5! Thank you for watching, we love you guys! #2brokegirls #season5" and "Season 5 of @2BrokeGirls ahhhhhhh yaaaaay!!!!!!!!! Thank you to @CBSTweet and my amazing 2 Broke family!" respectively.
Mathew Perry comedy "The Odd Couple", which just debuted this season, also seems to have good chances of renewal, reports Deadline.
