'Mom' season 6: Return date and episode titles of Anna Faris' CBS comedy revealed
So far, the Anna Farris and Allison Janney-led comedy everything dealt with some of the most socially relevant issues and tough subject matters - including drug overdose and rape.
Fans probably saw it coming when CBS, back in April, renewed its high-rated series 'Mom' for the sixth season. Starring fan-favorite actresses Anna Farris and Allison Janney as the comical yet eccentric mother-daughter duo Christy and Bonnie, the comedy has not only appealed to the senses of an adult audience but also found a permanent place in the heart of CBS viewers, raking in an impressive 11 million average viewers for each episode in the last season.
Now, with season 6 due for premiere in just a month's time, we have compiled all the details and every update about the upcoming episodes of 'Mom.' The series, following the journey of Christy and Bonnie - who are both recovering from alcohol and substance abuse - will return with another roster of laughs this fall, on September 27 at 9/8 c.
While not much information is available plot-wise, the titles of the first four episodes were recently revealed - Ep1: 'Pre-Washed Lettuce and a Mime,' Ep 2: 'Go-Go Boots and a Butt Cushion,' Ep 3: 'Ambulance Chasers and a Babbling Brook,' Ep 4: 'Coconut Water and the Ol' Stamperoo.' And judging by the established trend, the episode titles are sure going to make it easier for loyal 'Mom' followers to make an educated guess about the sixth season of the series.
So far, the Farris and Janney-led comedy, which debuted back in 2013, has dealt with some of the most socially relevant issues and tough subject matters - including drug overdose and sexual harassment - striking an apt balance with humor. And if Farris' words are to be believed, the major part of the credit goes to the writers.
"It's [the writers] vision, and it's brilliant," Faris told Glamour. However, that doesn't mean the 'Mom' stars don't have ideas for their characters in the coming episodes.
"I'd love to see the subject of aging," insisted Mimi Kennedy (Marjorie). "Each of us is in a different [age bracket], but there's [always] that shame of aging, like, does anybody still love me? Am I invisible? There's [an outdated way of thinking] like I'm too old, I won't go out anymore, I missed the mark, I got sick, I put on too much weight, one of my children is unhappy, etc. No! I'm not interested in putting on a lot of fake eyelashes, but I am interested in being vital."
As Jaime Pressly (Jill) chimes in, adding, "I think it's important that we see a bunch of women 40 and over who are all totally different, totally flawed, unafraid to be flawed, and what their flaws are."
