A few days before the production of ‘Mom’ season 8 could begin, Anna Faris announced that she’s leaving the show. It came as a major shock to many as nobody expected her to leave. Anna’s decision was surprising to even those who worked with her closely and everyday. Safe to say, no one was happy in letting her go.
A source close to the project says that Anna’s decision leave has boggled the CBS network and the makers. The show is highly successful and bringing in such a drastic change can prove to be dangerous. ‘Mom’ had been performing quite profitably even during such an economically tough time. So, a lead quitting in these circumstances, can be the biggest nightmare.
Faris called her journey on the show as one of the most fulfilling journeys of her life. She says that it was extremely rewarding for her profession and she thanks everyone associated with the show for it. She thanked the writer, makers and her colleagues for the wonderful experience that she had on the sets.
Anna says that her decision to quit the show is because she wants to pursue different opportunities in her career. The makers thanked Anna for her time and bringing Christy to life on screen. As of now, the character is meant to be written off from the script and no replacement has been announced.
