When Cougar Town was booted from ABC and moved to basic cable, we wept. When the sitcom bade farewell to showrunners Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel, we sobbed. And when we realized that it would be up against Robot Combat League, we bawled openly. But our fair underdog has proven itself resilient: Cougar Town has cranked out a gem of a fourth season, and is now officially slated to give us a fifth!
TBS has announced that the Courteney Cox-com will officially be returning for a Season 5, set to air in 2014. The series, which focuses on the daily expositions of hedonism from divorced real estate agent Jules Cobb (Cox) and her friends and family members in her Florida residence, is presently gearing up to close its fourth season, which will broadcast its finale on Apr. 9.
In Season 4, we've seen Jules adjust to her second marriage to bartender and neighbor Grayson (Josh Hopkins), and Jules' son Travis earn the affection of his longtime unrequited love Laurie (Busy Phillips). Season 5 can only expand the Cougar Town universe, introducing more storylines for the likes of stars Christa Miller, Ian Gomez, and scene-stealer Brian Van Holt.
