TBS has renewed The Detour for Season 4, slated to premiere in 2019, RenewCancelTV has confirmed.
The third season of The Detour found the Parkers on the lam in Alaska. After months of running, the family finally finds a community of misfits and decides to settle down and start rebuilding their lives. But they’re not out of the woods, as the law isn’t far behind. While Nate and Robin learn to take on new roles in the family, Delilah starts to become a young woman. And Jareb…well he’s still Jareb. Well intentioned, bad parenting is at its best in the Land of the Midnight Sun.
TBS has not set The Detour Season 4 as the last in the comedy’s run, leaving open the possibility of a fifth season in 2020.

TBS has ordered up another season of hilarious misadventures with TV’s most dysfunctional family.

With the return of The Detour, TBS is building on the extraordinary success of a 100% renewal rate since the network’s rebrand in 2016.
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 and Liam Carroll. Season 3 reached more than 25 million viewers across TBS’ linear, VOD and digital platforms, reaching an increase of 74% in digital views.
The Detour has been hailed as “one of the most underrated shows on TBS and in all of TV” (Indiewire) and “a surprising, fun, and filthy take on the family sitcom.” (Splitsider). The Detour is executive-produced by Jason Jones, Samantha Bee and Brennan Shroff.
