Grab your Big Carls, or heck, just drink straight from the wine bottle! I won’t judge, because I’m way too excited that Cougar Town—which has been living in TV-scheduling limbo—is finally returning to the primetime lineup. That’s right, ABC officially confirmed that our favorite cul-de-sac crew will be back on Tuesday, Feb. 14, at 8:30 p.m. It’s as if the powers that be knew my Valentine’s Day would be totally lame otherwise!
I know it’s been a long time since a new episode aired. (238 days, to be exact. Not that I was counting…) So here’s a refresher in four sentences: Travis was having a quarter-life crisis, so he escaped to Hawaii. The rest of the crew followed for some aloha-style shenanigans. Travis and Laurie bonded. And Grayson and Jules talked about having kids together.
Now that the long-awaited return is less than a month away, what do you hope to see in season 3? Will Travis be completely over his crisis? Will Laurie and Travis continue to make me root for their semi-inappropriate relationship? And what about Grayson and Jules? They had a pretty grown-up conversation about having kids in the season 2 finale, and now it looks like they’re getting even more serious. (SPOILER ALERT: TVLine reported a major spoiler for Jules and Grayson. Click at your own risk.) And I’d be remiss without mentioning Ellie, Andy, and their “adoptive” child Bobby. Just thinking about it makes me want to pound some grape, or at least play a game of PENNY CAN!
It’s your turn, PopWatchers. What do you want to see happen in season 3? And which cul-de-sac crew member are you most excited to have back in your weekly TV life? (My vote goes to Laurie. LAUGH!) Sound off in the comments below.
