"Cougar Town has been everything we hoped it would be: a smart, big-hearted, laugh-out-loud comedy that shines a bright light on the TBS brand," said the network's Michael Wright in the announcement. "This season, the brilliant cast and immensely creative production team on Cougar Town have crafted their best episodes yet, and we couldn't be happier inviting them back for more."
"Cougar Town" is the creation of Bill Lawrence ("Scrubs," "Spin City") and Kevin Biegel, and stars Courteney Cox, Christa Miller, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Ian Gomez, Josh Hopkins and Brian Van Holt as a group of Florida friends who basically hang out and drink a lot of wine. Cox and David Arquette also serve as executive producers. The show's fifth season will air in 2014.
