The Detour Canceled After Four Seasons at TBS

It's the end of the line for the Parker family and their road trip. 

TBS has decided against renewing The Detour for a fifth season, meaning that the recent fourth season finale now serves as the series finale. 

The Natalie Zea and Jason Jones-fronted comedy was never a hit in the ratings, but it was a reliable performer. 

The fourth season 0.72 million total viewers and a 0.26 rating among adults 18-49, down a significant 30% vs. Season 3. 

TBS has also canceled Angie Tribeca and Wrecked recently, leading many to believe that it could be saying goodbye to scripted comedy series. 

American Dad continues to be the highest-rated series in the demo, but the linear ratings were not much better than some of the canceled shows. 

What we do know is that Snowpiercer, which was originally in the works at TNT, is moving to TBS.

The Detour Cancelled at TBS

The Parker family’s road trip is officially over: TBS has cancelled The Detour after four seasons, TVLine has learned.

The twisted family comedy starred Jason Jones and Natalie Zea as parents Nate and Robin, who embark on an innocent road trip from New York to Florida with their three two kids.

‘The Detour’ Canceled By TBS After Four Seasons

  • Deadline
The Detour is coming to an end. TBS has opted not to renew the comedy series starring Jason Jones and Natalie Zea for a fifth season. The final episode of Season 4, which aired on August 20, doubled as a series finale.

Created, written and executive-produced by husband-and-wife duo of Jones and Samantha Bee, The Detour was part of the first wave of comedy series ordered by TBS after Kevin Reilly joined Turner, which broke through. Most of the others, including Wrecked and People of Earth,were also canceled recently as TBS is morphing from a comedy-centric to a general-entertainment network featuring both comedy and drama programming.

The Detour focused on the hilariously dysfunctional Parker family and their infamous misadventures, which included a bonkers road trip, a disastrous move to New York and a run from the law in Alaska, among other things.

‘The Detour’ Deserves a Second Life on HBO Max, Along With Cable’s Other Overlooked Comedies

‘The Detour’ Deserves a Second Life on HBO Max, Along With Cable’s Other Overlooked Comedies
The peak TV era has seen many tragic casualties, but basic cable comedies may top the list. From (relatively) long-running critical favorites like “You’re the Worst” and “Angie Tribeca” to short-lived gems like “The Comedians” and “Detroiters,” subscription TV networks without a dedicated streaming component have struggled to turn quality programs into award-winning, buzzy, or high-rated hits.

And if your main goal is to be funny, well, the road to success got that much steeper. Over the past decade, as live ratings have declined and online viewing has increased, plenty of people have wondered whether these shows could’ve burned brighter or lasted longer if there was a simpler way to keep up. Soon, thanks to the streaming wars, we may have an answer.

Enter “The Detour.” The TBS sitcom co-created by Samantha Bee and Jason Jones is set to wrap its fourth season Tuesday, Aug. 20, and despite strong early reviews,

Samantha Bee Isn’t Thrilled to Be the Last Woman Standing in Late Night
Samantha Bee is now the only female host in late night, and that’s a stat she’s not happy about. “It’s a bit unsettling,” Bee recently told Variety. “It’s been a bad year to be a woman in this space. It’s not really a badge that I want to wear.”

Shows that have been canceled over the past year include E!’s “Busy Tonight,” hosted by Busy Philipps; Hulu’s Sarah Silverman series “I Love You, America”; Michelle Wolf’s Netflix show “The Break”; and Bet’s “The Rundown” with Robin Thede. Before that, Chelsea Handler’s Netflix talk show was also axed after two years.

“I don’t feel good being the last woman standing in this space currently,” Bee said. “It doesn’t fill my heart with gladness that Busy was canceled, Michelle Wolf’s show is gone, Sarah Silverman’s show is gone.

TBS Adds Dramas and TNT Turns to Blockbusters, as WarnerMedia Starts Rebranding Its Networks

“We’re comedy”… and drama? At Wednesday morning’s upfront presentation, WarnerMedia announced plans to add drama programming to Turner’s comedy flagship, TBS, starting in 2020. The shift is part of the new company’s reorganization after the At&T/Time Warner merger, as WarnerMedia’s entertainment assets fall into the untitled, direct-to-consumer streaming platform.

And the first drama to be featured on TBS is none other than the troubled adaptation of “Snowpiercer.” Based on Bong Joon Ho’s 2013 film of the same name, the drama was originally planned to be released on TNT, but Kevin Reilly, president of TBS & TNT, and chief creative officer of WarnerMedia Direct-to-Consumer, announced the move to TBS as well as a delayed release date. Now expected in Spring 2020, the news wasn’t all bad for fans eagerly awaiting the new vision: TBS picked up Season 2 ahead of the series premiere.

Samantha Bee Gets Honest About Comedy Central Not Wanting Her as ‘Daily Show’ Host: ‘It Was Awful’
Before Samantha Bee moved to TBS to host her own acclaimed late night series “Full Frontal,” the comedian spent 12 years working with Jon Stewart and Comedy Central as a correspondent on “The Daily Show.” Bee made her “Daily Show” debut on July 20, 2003 and signed off April 30, 2015, an unprecedented run that continues to make her the longest-serving correspondent in “Daily Show” history. Bee’s dominant presence on the show made a lot of viewers believe she would replace Stewart when he announced he was leaving, but Bee tells The Daily Beast her name was never really floated around Comedy Central.

“I was wildly unsurprised,” Bee said on the most recent episode of “The Last Laugh” podcast about not being considered for “Daily Show” host. “They didn’t ask me or talk to me about it. I mean, literally, no one called or even emailed from the network—at all.”
