If Melissa McCarthy had her way, Mike and Molly would have stayed on the air for another half a century!
On Sunday, the actress's costar Rondi Reed revealed that the CBS sitcom had been cancelled in a lengthy Facebook post!
While the network has yet to make an official announcement, other stars of the comedy have taken to social media to lament about the show's cancellation — including Molly herself!

It's all over for Mike & Molly!
The show is supposed to start its sixth season in January, and apparently, that will also be its final run, according to some of the show's co-stars.

Billy Gardell, who plays the title character Mike — alongside his co-star Melissa McCarthy, of course — tweeted last week about some changes on the set of the CBS production:

Melissa McCarthy is walking a fine line with this gown.
The Mike & Molly star hit the Emmys red carpet in a very dark custom Marchesa that we just aren't loving.
On the one hand, the black on black on black is a straightforward, elegant choice. And she's certainly accessorizing well. But is it all a bit too safe?
There's such thing as too subtle, and this is bordering on the boring. It's certainly somewhat somber in the daylight.
We think we COULD love this with a little tweaking- we just wish Melissa had a splash of color in here somewhere.

Aw, what an unfortunate coincidence.
In the wake of yesterday's devastating tornado, CBS execs decided to pull the season finale of Mike & Molly (starring the ever lovely Melissa McCarthy) from Monday night's schedule, as the episode featured a (fictional) tornado hitting Chicago.
A CBS spokesperson said in a statement:

Melissa McCarthy is so hot right now- but at home, she's just Mommy!
The Bridesmaids star says her daughters Vivian and Georgette, 5 and 3, aren't old enough to understand her movies yet- or even that she's in the movies! She says:

Melissa McCarthy's career exploded with the success of Bridesmaids and now ALL of the biggest comedy productions in Hollywood want a piece of her.
The peeps behind The Hangover III are currently in talks with the Mike & Molly star to come aboard for a small role. Details as to what that role might be are still under wraps, but we have no doubt in our minds that she won't kill it.
Maybe she'll end up being Zach Galifianakis' love interest! She's the only woman we can think of that could possibly tame the wildest member of the Wolfpack. Ha!
It's no guarantee since she's so busy (she just recently wrapped filming two major comedies), however sources say McCarthy's involvement is likely.
Yay! We hope this casting works out!

Honestly, we couldn't be more thrilled for her!
One of the most well-deserved nominations in quite some time!
Melissa McCarthy only just found out that she's received an Academy Award nod as Best Supporting Actress for her incredible performance in Bridesmaids, and took the opportunity to discuss her shock before heading to work on her sitcom Mike & Molly!
