Mike and Molly star Melissa McCarthy is “shocked and heartbroken” that her CBS sitcom has been canceled.

“I would have shot this show for 50 more years,” McCarthy wrote on Twitter. “I’ll miss my 2nd family.”

On Sunday, Mike and Molly actress Rondi Reed posted online that the show had been canceled, but CBS has not officially confirmed the news.

Reed — who plays Mike’s mother, Peggy — wrote on Facebook that the sixth season would be the show’s last, cut down from 22 episodes to 13.

“The network has its 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,” Reed wrote. 

The sitcom premiered in 2010, and McCarthy earned three Emmy nominations and one win for her role as Molly.
