"Mom" will be back on CBS for a sixth season.

That gives newly minted Oscar winner Allison Janney a chance to collect some more awards hardware: Two of her Emmys are for "Mom," four are from "The West Wing."

Producer Chuck Lorre announced the good news at sitcom's wrap party last night, according to Deadline.

His other shows, "The Big Bang Theory" and its spinoff, "Young Sheldon," have already been renewed.

The show, which stars Janney and Anna Faris, just celebrated its 100th episode. According to Deadline, it averages over 11 million viewers and is the third most-watched comedy in broadcast television, behind Lorre's two other shows, "The Big Bang Theory" and "Young Sheldon."

"Mom has been a lynchpin comedy for us over the last several years," said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. "It's a fearless series that tackles provocative social issues with laughter and grace, and a large, loyal audience has followed. With gifted talents like Anna and Allison leading a great ensemble cast, and a production team headed by Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky, Nick Bakay and Gemma Baker, this series just keeps getting better."

The series costars Jaime Pressly, Mimi Kennedy, Beth Hall, and William Fichtner.
