‘The Detour’ is a road-trip family comedy series that airs on the TBS network. Created and written by husband-wife duo Jason James and Samantha Bee, the show charts the spontaneous and hilarious journey of a family of four as they deal with the various, often unpleasant situations that arise in their lives. While true stress-free holidays are never enjoyed by them, they manage to remain as a close-knit family and spend season after season making us laugh.
Interestingly, the show is James and Bee’s own experiences on vacation, and TBS in 2014, ordered the pilot written by them. The pilot left TBS impressed, following which the network ordered a 10-episode first season in February 2015. Prior to the premiere of Season 1 on April 11, 2016, TBS, on April 6, 2016, renewed the show for a second season. Season 2 subsequently made its way to viewers’ screens on February 21, 2017, and it was followed by Season 3’s premiere on January 23, 2018. With fans of the show clamoring for a fourth season TBS renewed the show for Season 4 of May 11, 2018. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming season.
The Detour Cast: Who is in it?
The show revolves around the adventures and misadventures of the Parker family as they head towards Florida. Jason Jones himself stars as the patriarch of the Parker family, Nate Parker, while Natalie Zea plays the role of Nate’s wife, Robin Parker. The two Parker children, Delilah and Jared, are played by Ashley Gerasimovich and Liam Carroll, respectively.
Apart from the Parker family, Daniella Pineda plays Robin’s sister Vanessa Randall, while Laura Benanti plays Vanessa and Robin’s long-lost sister and USPIS Agent Edie Randall. Finally, Mary Grill plays Federal Agent Mary, thereby wrapping the main cast of the show.
The main cast members aside, the show has dozens and dozens of recurring cast members playing minor characters, including Phil Reeves as Gene, Jeffrey Vincent Parise as Carlos, Tom Amandes as Dr. Rob, Judge Reinhold as Davey, Maz Jobrani as Gupta, Jeff Blumenkrantz as Lars, Teddy Canez as Conrad, Donshea Hopkins as Chase, Marceline Hugot as Judith, Saverio Guerra as Paddy Greenberg, and Paloma Guzman as Carlita, to name a few.
In Season 4 of the show, we expect the main cast members to make a comeback and reprise their roles. As far as minor characters are concerned, we’re pretty sure that there will be some additions, but as of now, we don’t have any news on which new actors and actresses will feature in Season 4 of the show. We will update this section as soon as we get word on the cast of Season 4.
