A comedy series that has pretty much been on the road for three seasons now is poised to keep it going for another season after TBS announced it has renewed “The Detour.”

“After a bonkers road-trip, a disastrous move to New York City, and a run from the law in Alaska, the Parkers will be back for a fourth season of ‘The Detour,’ one of cable’s top 10 comedies,” TBS said in announcing the pickup today. “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.”

The series is created, written and executive produced by Jason Jones and Samantha Bee. Jones stars in the comedy with Natalie Zea, Ashley Gerasimovich and Liam Carroll.

“Season 3 reached more than 25 million viewers across TBS’s linear, VOD and digital platforms, reaching an increase of 74% in digital views,” TBS noted, adding: “‘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.
