Why did Molly leave Last Man Standing?

At the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour, EP Matt Berry was interviewed by TV Line’s reporter. During the interview, he talked about the reason behind Molly’s departure in the Last Man Standing, season 7.
He said, “When the show was canceled… [Molly] got involved in some different things, so when [Last Man Standing] came back, she was not able to do it. It’s unfortunate. We love her deeply. She’s a big part of who we were. But [it’s] exciting for us to look around and see who we can get to play that character. We want someone to come in and not play Molly Ephraim. We want somebody to come in and play Mandy. We’ve seen a lot of great actresses.”
As you can read, she simply ventured into other opportunities because she wanted to prepare for the future as she felt that the show would never return to the screens again. Thus, she was unable to take part in the new season of the show because she was involved in many things.
