Are you a fan of The Detour? Recently, co-creator Samantha Bee and director/star Natalie Zea spoke with IndieWire about the future of the TBS TV show.
The comedy series centers on a family that gets seriously derailed on a road trip from New York to Florida. The cast includes Jason Jones Natalie Zea, Ashley Gerasimovich, and Jared Liam Carroll.
The Detour is set to air its season four finale on August 20th, but will there be a fifth season? Star and director Natalie Zea told IndieWire it’s frustrating the TBS series hasn’t received more attention:
I know a lot of people watch the show. I love that a lot of people watch the show. But sometimes it’s frustrating that more people aren’t talking about it. So many people would fall in love with this show and identify with this show if they just kind of knew about it.”
However, they may be hope for the family comedy. Co-creator Samantha Bee said she thinks the show would perform well on a streaming service like the upcoming HBO Max:
I’m really hoping people will gravitate to it. I think it would fare very well on a streaming service, actually, because it is the type of show you can 100 percent binge. I actually think if it makes it onto the WarnerMedia streaming service, it will do very well there. It kind of needs that in order to catch on.”
As of reporting, TBS has not renewed The Detour for a fifth season and Hulu owns the streaming rights to seasons one through four.
What do you think? Are you a fan of The Detour? Would you watch it on a streaming service?
