After seven seasons, one-half of Mom's mother-daughter duo will have to face what life throws at them alone.

In early September 2020, it was announced that Anna Faris, who has starred in the highly-rated tv comedy since it debuted in 2013, wouldn't be returning for the series' eighth season. That meant her appearance on Mom's April 16 episode, "Big Sad Eyes and a Wrinkled Hot Dog," would be her last.

"Why am I here?"

"Aw, you're just in a little slump, you'll get out of it."

The episode was season 7's 20th and unexpectedly final episode after filming was cut short due to the industry-wide production shutdowns caused by COVID-19. At the time Faris' departure was announced, Warner Brothers TV, CBS, and Chuck Lorre Productions said in a statement:

"From the inception of Mom, Anna was the first and only choice for the role of Christy. We are so proud of the stories we have been able to tell during Anna's seven years with us. We wish Anna all the best, and we thank her for her beautiful portrayal."

Faris' role as recovering addict and single mom Christy Plunkett won't be recast, meaning her exit leaves her co-star Allison Janney, who plays Christy's mother Bonnie, as the show's sole lead. In recent years, however, the series about a formerly estranged mother and daughter attempting to keep their relationship and their lives together while staying sober, has become more of an ensemble with supporting actors Mimi Kennedy, Jaime Pressly, Beth Hall, William Fichtner, and Kristen Johnston all getting their roles expanded.

THR reported that Faris' departure hasn't caused any major impact in the writer's room for the series going into season 8. According to Deadline, the actress' exit was finalized early during the show's hiatus, meaning the writers already had planned to craft the season without Christy.

While Mom's creative team may have been prepared for Faris to go, the news has left many fans wondering why she decided to leave so suddenly, especially amid such a successful run. The announcement was particularly shocking considering she was in the middle of a two-year contract, which she signed in the spring of 2019 following extensive negotiations. Janney inked the very same deal, which would ensure the two would stay on the comedy through season 8. Keep watching the video to learn the real reason Anna Faris left Mom.
