Melissa McCarthy has reacted with shock and sadness at the apparent news that her role as Molly Flynn in ‘Mike & Molly’ will be coming to an end at the end of its current season.

The 45 year old actress, also a star of Bridesmaids, Spy and Tammy and due to feature in the rebooted Ghostbusters, took to Twitter late on Monday (December 14th) seemingly to confirm that the CBS sitcom was being cancelled.

“I was shocked and heartbroken when @CBS canceled #MikeAndMolly. I would have shot this show for 50 more years. I'll miss my 2nd family,” she wrote. Fellow cast members Katy Mixon and Reno Wilson quickly re-tweeted her post.

‘Mike & Molly’ has been running since 2010, but the show’s leading man Billy Gardell announced earlier in December that when the sitcom returned for its sixth season on January 6th, it would be the final run for the show.

Former Oscar nominee McCarthy’s post seemed to reassure fans that ‘Mike & Molly’ wasn’t ended because she wanted to pursue other, more ambitious projects, as some had speculated over the last week.

The show’s executive producer Chuck Lorre spoke to The Insider on the same day, and shared McCarthy’s sentiments. “I'm sad. It's a great group of people,” he said. “We had a six-year run, which is a very honorable experience in television, but I wasn't ready for it to end. So, it's hard. It's a little bittersweet.”

Paying tribute to the show’s leading lady, he added: “It's a great, great ensemble led by, perhaps, the greatest comic actress of our time in Melissa McCarthy. It's just heartbreaking. I've not quite wrapped my head around the idea that it's going to be over.”
