Cougar Town isn’t going away anytime soon. TBS has just renewed the comedy series for season five, giving the go-ahead for 13 brand new episodes. The series, which stars Courteney Cox, Christa Miller, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Ian Gomez, Josh Hopkins and Brian Van Holt, will wrap up season four on April 9, 2013. Season five will premiere sometime in 2014.
 
Announcing the renewal, Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) stated: “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.”
 
Season four has been averaging 2.8 million viewers, according to the network, and is TBS’ top primetime series ever.
 
The Plot:
 
Cougar Town centers on the “cul de sac crew,” a tight-knit group of friends who keep things funny while supporting each other through the challenges and pitfalls of life – with a little dysfunction and a whole lot of wine. Courteney Cox stars as Jules Cobb, a recently remarried mom who is never far from her wine and her friends, including her new husband, Grayson (Josh Hopkins); her under-achieving ex-husband, Bobby (Brian Van Holt); her next-door neighbor and confidante, Ellie (Christa Miller); her feisty protégé, Laurie (Busy Philipps); and Ellie’s loveably average husband, Andy (Ian Gomez). They are frequently joined by Jules’ 21-year-old son, Travis (Dan Byrd), who tends to be far more mature than anyone else in the group.
