TBS has canceled its comedy “The Detour” after 4 seasons.

The series, which starred Jason Jones and Natalie Zea, aired its last episode on Aug. 20. Jones created and executive produced the series with his wife Samantha Bee, who hosts the network’s late-night series “Full Frontal.” The series, about a family vacation gone awry, was based on the duo’s own experiences.

Ashley Gerasimovich, Liam Carroll, Daniella Pineda, Mary Grill and Laura Benanti also starred over the course of the show’s four-season run. The fourth and now final season followed followed the Parker family on a world-wide search for their runaway teen daughter, Delilah (Gerasimovich).

“The Detour” becomes the latest scripted casualty at TBS, which in recent months has canceled “Wrecked,” “People of Earth” and “Angie Tribeca.” Tracy Morgan’s “The Last OG” was renewed for a third season, with new showrunner Keenan Ivory Wayans. TBS’ scripted roster still includes Nasim Pedrad’s “Chad,” “Miracle Workers” and “Search Party.”

The paring down of TBS’ scripted roster comes as the network is set to air its first drama next year in the much-delayed “Snowpiercer” adaptation, which will debut in the spring. TBS’ parent company WarnerMedia is set to launch its streaming service, HBO Max, in the spring as well.
