Though Cougar Town endured a critically-acclaimed three-season run, its low ratings assured itself to be one of ABC’s casualties during next week’s Upfronts. But in the face of dour news of cancellation, the Cul de Sac Crew has been resurrected by TBS, which may finally start putting its Very Funny slogan to use.
The network has picked up the sitcom for a fourth season, which will air early in 2013. TBS also acquired the rights to all 61 episodes of the first three seasons.
Cougar Town joins an elite list of well-received, low-rated shows with rabid fan bases that have gotten a second chance on a new network, joining Friday Night Lights (NBC to DirecTV), Southland (NBC to TNT), and Bill Lawrence’s previous cult favorite Scrubs (NBC to ABC).
Time to celebrate Cougar Town style — with wine, and a lot of it.
Which cancelled show do you wish was saved by another network?
