TBS has announced The Detour season two in advance of the show’s first season premiere next week
TBS is getting ready to hit the road again with the Parker family and all their obvious dysfunction. The network has ordered a 13-episode The Detour season two several days before the show’s official first season launch. Created, written and executive-produced by Jason Jones and Samantha Bee, The Detour is an often too honest look at the family dynamic and the chaos that can erupt from not being honest with the ones we love.
Starring Jones, Natalie Zea, Ashley Gerasimovich and Liam Carroll, The Detour is set to debut on TBS Monday, April 11, at 9/8c.
“I’m very excited to be going back to making my favorite show not yet on TV and look forward to making outrageous demands in my rider for the second season,” says Jones.
“Jason and Sam’s vision and execution of the first season was original and unexpected at every ridiculous turn,” adds Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “Having Jason as Executive Producer, Director and Star really brought a definition to the voice of the characters and a realism to this family.”
Millions of viewers have already sampled the show with sneak preview telecasts following TBS’s coverage of the NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament. If you haven’t already had a chance to check it out, however, you can watch it in the player below!
The Detour is executive produced by Jason Jones, Samantha Bee, Brennan Shroff and Tony Hernandez.
