Is CBS about to cash out on its 2 Broke Girls investment?
The long-running sitcom is heading into its Season 6 finale without a renewal in its back pocket, and oddsmakers say the series has an even-money chance of returning next fall.
One thing’s for certain: Monday’s closer (9:30/8:30c) was not designed as a series finale, maintains co-showrunner Michelle Nader.
“This is not the end for these girls,” the EP insists. “We’re not finished and we don’t want to be finished and I don’t think the audience is finished. Obviously there’s no guarantee that we will be back, but we did not write the episode as a series finale.”
That said, Monday’s outing — which revolves around the premiere of Caroline’s biopic — features a fairly momentous turning point for Max (which may or may not involve the return of her estranged ex, Randy). “This season for us was kind of… I don’t want to say a reboot, but we kind of think of the show as just beginning in a way,” Nader notes. “With the girls [becoming] successful and finding love, it’s opened up a whole new world for us.”
Nader remains “hopeful” that CBS will commission a seventh season, adding, “We have creative urge to continue to do the show. CBS has been really supportive of us and so we believe that they’ll want to see more of these girls.”
