'Mom' Season 8 Episode 4 will not be airing today, here's what to expect when the show returns
In the previous episode, we saw Bonnie Plunkett reconnecting with an old flame and taking a trip down memory lane and in the next, we see her and Adam doling out relationship advice
Sorry folks, 'Mom' will not be airing on November 26. The show is on a two-week break and will return on December 3. Yet, the episode promises to be just as sassy and quirky as the others, going by the synopsis. In the previous episode, we saw Bonnie Plunkett (Allison Janney) reconnecting with an old flame and taking a trip down memory lane and in the next, we see her and Adam doling out relationship advice.
The synopsis for Episode 4 reads, "Bonnie and Adam offer relationship advice when they sense tension between Jill and Andy; Tammy lends a hand when chef Rudy opens a food truck."
The comedy series is based on a mother and daughter's dysfunctional relationship. The troubled duo Christy (Anna Faris) and Bonnie Plunkett, who were separated for years, reunited at the beginning of the series. And facing difficult struggles with alcoholism, they attempt to live a healthy life as they both attend Alcoholics Anonymous to get over their alcohol addiction. However, with Faris's exit announced just before the filming of the show started, there was much worry whether 'Mom' could carry on without her. At the premiere of Season 8, Christy's absence was explained as her going away to law school.
In an interview to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Gemma Baker explained that there were 'still so many stories' left to tell. "When we first heard Anna was leaving Mom we were, of course, sad to lose her. Anna created such a beautiful character in Christy Plunkett. And we loved writing the mother-daughter dynamics for Christy and Bonnie and watching that relationship deepen and heal over the years. But we never felt a sense of panic because, over the last few seasons, the show has naturally become more about the ensemble. We have such an incredibly strong cast, so we never doubted that we would be able to lean into them. There are so many stories left to tell about these strong women. My very first job was on Two and a Half Men. I started in Ashton Kutcher’s first season. In a way, a star leaving a show was actually my big break. And in that case, the show went four more seasons."
'Mom' will return on December 3, Thursdays on CBS at 9 pm.
