TBS Renews "The Detour" for Third Season

Cable's Most Watched Comedy for the Year-to-Date Stars Jason Jones & Natalie Zea

Season 2 Finale Starts Tonight at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

Turner's TBS has ordered a third season of its hit series The Detour, cable's most watched original comedy for the year-to-date. Created, written and executive-produced by Jason Jones and Samantha Bee, The Detour is an all-too-honest look at the family dynamic. Jones stars in the acclaimed comedy with Natalie Zea, Ashley Gerasimovich, Liam Carroll and Daniella Pineda. TBS will close out the second season of The Detour tonight with a new episode at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), followed by the super-sized season finale, which will be presented with limited commercial interruption at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

"I hear from so many people who love The Detour, even my hardcore comedy friends," said Thom Hinkle, senior vice president of original programming for TBS. "Season Two has been so smart, hilarious and wrong. And from the early nuggets I've gotten from Jason and Sam, Season Three is going to be even more effed up."

In its first season, The Detour drew an audience of 4.4 million viewers per episode across multiple platforms and ranked as one of cable's Top 3 new comedies of 2016 with adults 18-49, drawing 1.2 million in the demo. The second season currently ranks as cable's #1 scripted comedy among total viewers for the year-to-date and #2 among adults 18-49.

The Detour is a hit not only with regular viewers but also with critics. The second season has been hailed as "whip-smart comedy" (TV Guide/TV Insider), "enjoyably outlandish" (The New York Times); "simultaneous fresh... it remains laugh-inducing" (We Got this Covered), "an uproariously twisted family comedy" (Entertainment Weekly), "an unpredictable treat... the perfect family sitcom for whatever the hell 2017 is going to be" (The Decider) and "one of the funniest and daring comedies on TV" (mic.com).

The Detour centers on a family of four led by Nate (Jones) and his wife, Robin (Zea). At the opening of the second season, Nate pursues a promising job opportunity and moves the family to New York City for a fresh start. Everyone is excited except for Robin, who knows that a move to the big city means her mysterious past may catch up with her. While Nate and Robin adjust to new jobs, new neighbors and old flames, Jared (Carroll) and Delilah (Gerasimovich) dive headfirst into the awkwardness of adolescence. Despite questionable parenting and terrible decisions, the love the Parkers have for each other will keep the family intact as they endure another disastrous adventure.

In addition to its regular cast, the second season of The Detour features a number of special guests, including series executive producer and co-creator Samantha Bee, James Cromwell, John Oliver, Laura Benanti, Jeffrey Vincent Parise and Max Casella.

The Detour is executive produced by Jason Jones, Samantha Bee, Brennan Shroff and Tony Hernandez.
