The fate of The Millers has already been sealed, but what about the unaired episodes? Will they ever be televised (or even streamed)?
While CBS hasn’t said it wont ever burn-off the cancelled sitcom’s remaining episodes, it probably wont happen any time soon.
The network has clarified the picture by scheduling the Mike & Molly Season 5 premiere to take over the vacant Mondays at 8:30PM slot from Dec. 8. Press release follows:
CBS ANNOUNCES “MIKE & MOLLY” SEASON PREMIERE ON MONDAY, DEC. 8
Two-Hour Block of Four Encore Episodes to Air Monday, Dec. 1
The fifth season of MIKE & MOLLY, starring Billy Gardell and Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy, will premiere Monday, Dec. 8 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. One week earlier, on Monday, Dec. 1, four encore episodes of the series will air from 8:00-10:00 PM, followed by a rebroadcast of SCORPION (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).
