Season Premiere Thursday, November 2 at 9 PM ET/PT on CBS
In the fifth season premiere, “Twinkle Lights and Grandma Shoes,” Bonnie gets cold feet when considering her future with Adam, and Christy risks failing an important test in order to help a fellow alcoholic. Missi Pyle returns as Natasha, the birth mother of Jill’s foster daughter.
Anna Faris and Emmy Award winner Allison Janney star in this often heart-wrenching comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre (“The Big Bang Theory,” “Two and a Half Men,” “Mike & Molly”). Christy is a single mom who, after years of questionable choices, is now sober and trying to get her life on track. She’s tested daily by her mother, Bonnie, who Christy still considers the root of her troubles, even though she has also gotten sober. Now mother and daughter are working to overcome their mistakes and build a better future for their family.
Christy has gone back to school and is pursuing her dream of becoming a lawyer, while Bonnie attempts to have a healthy romantic relationship and figure out what she wants to be when she grows up. Through all this, Christy and Bonnie rely on their support system from AA, including wise Marjorie, the wealthy and sometimes misguided Jill and the overly emotional Wendy. Together, they help each other stay sober and face whatever life throws at them.
