It looks like Mike and Molly are about to go their separate ways, at least according to one of the show's co-stars.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Rondi Reed announced that CBS is canceling "Mike & Molly," which stars Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy.

"Before you hear it elsewhere (and some already have) this is the Final and 6th Season of 'MIKE & MOLLY' on CBS," wrote wrote Reed, who plays Peggy on the show.

"It is also a shortened season (13 episodes) after the announced full renewal of 22 episodes back in March by the network. We are done taping as of January 27th 2016 and I am not sure exactly when/if the episodes will all be aired. The network has it's reasons, and I will not get into a debate, discussion, or campaign to get them to change their minds. Other venues were explored by WB and Bonanza Productions (Chuck Lorre) after CBS announced their intentions, but did not turn up a future for our show. It is a fact and we have known for a few weeks. I remain extremely grateful to have been a part of this and to have worked with a fabulous bunch of folks over the years. I have learned a lot about many things, including the Business we call Show. Also grateful for all the fans and for the personal support I have received over the (almost) 6 seasons. Stewart Talent has guided me every step of the way on this journey and for that I am also forever grateful."
