'Cougar Town' Moves to TBS for Season 4
Thursday, May 10, 2012
The Cul de Sac crew is getting a new home. After three seasons on ABC, the brilliant Courtney Cox comedy Cougar Town has been renewed for a fourth season ... on TBS.
The renewal ensures more wine and Penny Can antics will return in early 2013. Cougar Town currently airs on ABC with two new episodes scheduled for Tuesday at 8pm and the one-hour season finale will air Tuesday, May 29 at 8pm. Now it seems that will be a network series finale. The move also comes with TBS earning the rights to reruns of the first three seasons.
This is quite possibly the best news ever, since it seemed clear that ABC had no interest in keeping the show on the air. Though many people still ignore the show because of it's horrible title, Cougar Town itself has grown into a wonderfully absurd series and the writers have even grown to make fun of the title.
Strangely enough, switching networks is nothing new for Cougar Town creator Bill Lawrence. His previous show, Scrubs, moved from NBC to ABC for its final season.
At the very least, the renewal will be great news for Community's Abed, Cougar Town's biggest fan.
