“Mom” is a comedy showcasing the complicated relationships of three generations of mothers, while also focusing on Christy’s struggles to handle family, work, and relationships. Christy, a recovering alcoholic, is adjusting to life with her pregnant teenage daughter Violet and young son, Roscoe. Adding to the melodrama is Christy’s relationship with her own mother, Bonnie,as they are newly reconciled. Christy, like so many women, is working to avoid the mistakes Bonnie made with her and to be supportive and understanding to Violet.
In Season Five, single mom Christy Plunkett (Anna Faris) continues to take it one day at a time while fighting for her dreams, despite life’s many challenges. Not the least of which is her mother, Bonnie (Emmy and Academy Award winner Allison Janney). With their past mistakes firmly behind them, mother and daughter hilariously try to make up for lost time and get their lives back on track. Bonnie starts to get cold feet as Adam (William Fichtner) seeks to bring their romance to the next level, while Christy balances her hectic school schedule, work, and blossoming social life – which, of course, results in the occasional misstep. Meanwhile, their support system, Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy), Jill (Jaime Pressly) and Wendy (Beth Hall), face their own setbacks, and Christy considers getting a new sponsor. There’s family, fun and dysfunction in this comedy from Chuck Lorre that pulls no punches.
