Anna Faris gives update on podcast 'Unqualified' after 6-month hiatus (Exclusive)

Anna Faris' popular podcast "Unqualified" is coming back, but it may look a little different when it returns.

Fans of the candid podcast have been wondering why there hasn't been a new episode for over six months, with the most recent installment coming in March, and Faris recently told AOL's Gibson Johns exclusively that she's planning to bring "Unqualified" back this month -- with some alterations.

"We’re coming back in September. We’re coming back, [but] we’ve changed a couple of things," Faris told us at the end of last month. "I’m really excited, and I really hope that people continue to love it. We just finished season 6 of ‘Mom,’ and I wanted to refresh a couple of things. We made some cool changes."

As Faris prepares to bring her podcast back, she's also been in back-to-school mode with her son, Jack, entering first grade. Speaking at the launch event for her partnership with Clorox, the comic explained that she's on new ground as a parent, as she's never experienced the pressure of getting one's child ready for the school year.

"He’s going into first grade, so I don’t have a lot of experience with this," she laughed. "When it's back-to-school, the teachers bombard me with emails saying, 'Make sure he has, this make sure he has that and make sure he’s read these books.' It’s back-to-school for me, too, I guess! I have a learning curve with this, so Clorox found the perfect partner."

That's not to say that she doesn't appreciate the reminders coming from Jack's new teachers. As she told AOL, Faris said that her partnership hits home for her, as she has a lot of teachers in her extended family.

"I have a number of educators in my family, and a couple of them work in public schools. My brother is a professor," she said. "So, when Clorox approached me about partnering for their back-to-school campaign, they were partnering with DonorsChoose.org and donating 150,000 dollars to help students and teachers in need to help create a clean work environment, that meant a lot to me. It’s a really good cause, and creating that environment is really important for a kid’s chaotic life. Hopefully it helps promote creativity and productivity."
