Story by Jack Foley
COUGAR Town has been renewed for a fifth season by TBS.
The ABC Studios production, which left its broadcast network home in 2012 following a ratings drop during its third season, will continue appearing on network cable for a new run of 13 episodes.
The show stars Courteney Cox, Christa Miller, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Ian Gomez, Josh Hopkins and Brian Van Holt.
Announcing the decision, TBS, TNT and TCM president and head of programming Michael Wright said: “Cougar Town has been everything we hoped it would be: a smart, big-hearted, laugh-out-loud comedy that shines a bright light on the TBS brand.
“This season, the brilliant cast and immensely creative production team on Cougar Town have crafted their best episodes yet, and we couldn’t be happier inviting them back for more.”
