“Bob Hearts Abishola” will end on CBS after season 5

The approaching fifth season of “Bob Hearts Abishola” at CBS will be the show’s final season.

The multi-cam comedy’s fifth season is scheduled to debut on February 12; the series finale is currently scheduled for May 13.

“Bob Hearts Abishola”‘s finale may signal the end of an era for CBS. Chuck Lorre has no shows scheduled for the CBS schedule into the autumn of 2019, due to the cancellation of the show and the previously announced closure of ‘Young Sheldon’. It will mark the first time since 2003 that Lorre has not had at least one show on CBS, barring the network taking up a new project from him and his team in the meantime.

Lorre’s run at CBS has been extraordinary. He has co-created and executive produced several network series over the last 20 years, including popular series like “The Big Bang Theory,” “Two and Half Men,” “Mom,” and “Young Sheldon.” He’s now getting “Bookie” ready for Max.

President of CBS Entertainment Amy Reisenbach remarked, “We are so proud to call ‘Bob Hearts Abishola’ a CBS comedy as it helped establish a new generation of programming at the Network.” “This series expertly showcased a family love story and workplace comedy about the immigrant experience with heartfelt humor and emotion while also authentically portraying Nigerian culture. It’s a testament to the incomparable Chuck Lorre, the amazing creative team led by Al Higgins, Gina Yashere and Matt Ross, and the talents of Billy Gardell, Folake Olowofoyeku and the entire cast for making this show and its characters come to life and resonate with viewers. We plan to celebrate it this spring and give fans the most amazing episodes to remember it by.”

The show is described as a love story about Bob (Billy Gardell), a middle-aged compression sock entrepreneur from Detroit, who, while recuperating from a heart attack, unintentionally fell in love with his cardiac nurse, Abishola (Folake Olowofoyeku), an immigrant from Nigeria.

Executive producers Gina Yashere, Matt Ross, and Lorre stated, “‘Bob Hearts Abishola’ is about an unlikely love story, but also the premise that immigrants make America great.” “We’ve loved bringing these stories to life and are excited for fans to see the final chapter of these two families, and the incredible work of this talented cast and crew.”

Executive producers include Ross, Lorre, Al Higgins, and Yashere. Chuck Lorre Productions, in collaboration with Warner Bros. Television, is the producer of “Bob Hearts Abishola.” Lorre holds an overall setup with the network.

The show’s conclusion is not entirely unexpected. According to earlier reports, only Gardell and Olowofoyeku will be continuing as series regulars into the fifth season. To save money on the show, all the other series regulars were reduced to recurring roles.
