A comedy series whose season four finale was televised last month won’t make it to season five. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that TBS canceled “The Detour.”

“The Aug. 20 season four finale now doubles as a series finale for the show that rebooted itself as a new family adventure every season,” THR reports. “Never a ratings breakout, the single-camera effort from TBS’ Studio T and Jax Media signed off with 732,000 same-day viewers last month.”

The series starred Jason Jones and Natalie Zea as a couple who took their kids on a new and unpredictable vacation each season. THR notes that the series “was a strong performer on the digital side. Season three reached more than 25 million viewers across TBS’ linear, VOD and digital platforms.”

The show was co-created by Jones and his wife and producing partner, Samantha Bee.

THR notes that the decision to cancel the show “arrives as WarnerMedia-owned TBS has continued to re-evaluate the state of scripted fare on the formerly comedy-focused basic cable network. TBS has also canceled the comedies ‘Angie Tribeca,’ ‘Wrecked’ and ‘People of Earth.'”
