Cougar Town Renewed by TBS for a Sixth (and, Yes, a Final) Season

cougar-town-renewed-season-6-tbs-final-seasonFill your largest flower vase with Malbec: TBS has renewed Cougar Town for Season 6.

Brace for a slightly bittersweet celebration, however, as the show’s next batch of 13 episodes will be the final ones for the Courteney Cox-led ensemble comedy about a group of wine-guzzling, suburban Florida pals.

TBS’ sixth- and final-season order will bring Cougar Town past the 100-episode mark, the magic number for becoming a viable candidate for syndication.

Cougar Town premiered in September, 2009 on ABC as a lead-out to Modern Family, then made the leap to cable after getting cancelled at the end of Season 3.

The forecast for the sitcom’s future looked slightly uncertain as recently as last month, when series regular Ian Gomez booked a role on the CBS comedy pilot Cuz-Bros (in second position to his Cougar Town gig).

The cul-de-sac crew is expected to return to TBS — and pound copious grape — in early 2015.

    Great news!!! The last episode really felt like a series finale.

  2. jenna says:

    so glad for the renewal!!

  3. LuLu says:

    YES!!!!!!!!!! Very Happy but sad it will be the last season.

  4. Tony says:

    First Community is cancelled and now Cougar Town is ending??? This truly is the darkest timeline for Danny Pudi/Abed.

  5. chadcronin says:

    Correction to your story. It moved to TBS after the 3rd season

  6. christina says:

    awww yay! very bittersweet indeed. i’m very happy TBS picked it up after ABC’s cancellation and i’m glad we get one final season.

  7. The magic number for syndication is not 100 episodes. It has been 88 for something like 5 years now, and there’s some comment around that it could even be down to 65 in the current industry.

    • Dv says:

      Reading a couple tv blogs and Wikipedia doesn’t make you an expert.

      • KevyB says:

        Hee! It’s 100 for most series. Really popular series like Modern Family and Big Bang Theory can go earlier, but nobody wants 65 episodes of Mike & Molly.

    • canadian ninja says:

      There’s no magic number. If a tv station wants to buy and a production company wants to sell the show gets put on – reruns/marathon/syndicated whatever. How do people think this works? TV Leprechauns?

      I need me a Guzzle Buddy.

  8. Ram510 says:

    YES!!!!!! I was starting to get worried. But does this mean Ian Gomez won’t be able to be on CuzBros if it gets picked up?

  9. David4 says:

    Amazing that this show has lived on to get advanced word of a 6th and final season. Great news.

  10. Lana says:

    TBS is the only network I like anymore.

  11. Elle says:

    YAY we get to meet the baby! glad the show gets one more go to wrap things up <3

  12. Jackie says:

    Sad it’s ending, but SO happy to have one more season with a properly thought out series finale for my favorite show.

  13. Duke says:

    Sad to see it go, but at least it got to be one of the rare “transplant” success stories.

    How many shows have gotten to last 3 seasons after moving?

  14. Babybop says:

    I’m very happy it’s renewed… But I’m not incredibly happy that Laurie and Travis will be having a baby. We’ll see how they handle it.

  15. alistaircrane says:

    Thank God! The season finale did NOT feel like a series finale at all! I am so thankful we are going to get a proper goodbye AND cross the magic 100 episode mark. Cougar Town is my favourite comedy on TV right now!

  16. Liza says:

    Yay!!! Best news yet! I love this show and am so happy for a final season with proper closure!!

  17. Norkir says:

    Like Community, this show is not everyone’s cup of tea. But those of us that get it, GET it. Awesome show, great writing, perfect ensemble cast! Just shouting out “penny can” makes me smile! I will miss it.

  18. Liz says:

    Oh this is fabulous news!!!!!

  19. Areis says:

    #sixseasonandamovie….. Yayy

  20. I have read so many posts about the blogger lovers however this piece of writing is genuinely a pleasant piece of
    writing, keep it up.

  21. ChrisGa says:

    Good news for sure although I hope the last season is better than this past one, which was by far it’s weakest.

  22. N tTVf says:

    Glad to see Cougar Town get this final season and be in a position for longer term syndication. CC and her Coquette Production company should do quite well w/Cougar Town in syndication. Good for her – very bright business woman. Wish her all the best in her future work.

    Does Bill Lawrence own a piece of Cougar Town with Coquette? That would be nice if he and CM also have a financial stake in the show in syndication.

    Penny Can success to you all.

  23. DanT2590 says:

    One of my favorite shows! Glad it’s back at least for one more season.

  24. Ron says:

    Here’s an idea: TBS can pick up Community for a 13-episode, sixth and final season (just like CT) and pair the two together, which would put both of them past that 100 episode mark. Abed would be pleased with this pairing!

    • Jellymoff says:

      Community is already in Syndication, so don’t know if that will be a driver for them or not (I’m no expert on these things).

      • Ron says:

        Good point. I’m just more so wanting a final sixth season of Community, regardless of where it ends up. Since Comedy Central has syndication rights to the show (at least I think they do), maybe they can produce a sixth season?

  25. Mikael says:

    I’m so excited that Cougar Town is getting one more season! I never thought it would reach 100 episodes!

  26. guy says:

    The true #sixseasonsandamovie.

  27. Ella says:

    I’m amazed this show was renewed and the network passed on the far superior Happy Endings.

  28. Has Believe Been Cancelled?

  29. Kelley says:

    Being a friend in my mind to the “Friends” I felt like this was sort of a continuation. I wanted to be a part of the crew. And my son graduated when Travis did. And I became a grandmother this year too. So I will be very sad to see them go, but awfully glad they’ll be around a little longer!

  30. Dylan says:

    I wish it could keep going… But what could they do? After the baby comes and Chic dies, that’s it, show over.

  31. Paul says:

    Yeah, a Ross and Joey cameo to finish out the series.

  32. zee says:

    sure sure!

  33. Beverly Walker says:

    Yeah!!! Early 2015 is too long to wait!!! love the show

  34. BRii says:

    penny caaaaann….going to miss this showsoooo much.

  35. carly says:

    can’t wait to see a preggo laurie!!

  36. joe says:

    SO GLAD THEY ARE COMING BACK. wine just doesn’t taste the same without the cul-de-sac crew.

  37. Lucky says:

    So excited! I wish it wasn’t coming to an end!

  38. Peter says:

    This show should have been canceled before season one.

  39. ladytsw says:

    Can’t wait for the new season so sad that it will be the last

  40. Abbi says:

    NOOOOOOO, WE WANT A SEASON 7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. priscilla says:

    I am so happy its lasted this long, I will be buying the whole collection once its really over.

  42. Kevin H. says:

    It’s actually in the 88-100 zone that makes it viable for syndication. The more episodes you have, the better the syndication deal is. Getting Cougar Town over the 100 episode mark will only net positive results.
