'Cougar Town' Star to Exit Early in Final Season
The farewell tour has begun on Cougar Town.
The TBS comedy starring Courteney Cox will say goodbye to one of its series regulars, Brian Van Holt, early in the 13-episode sixth and final season, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Holt, who plays Bobby Cobb, has been with Cougar Town since its 2009 debut on ABC. Expected to appear in only one episode as a guest star, Holt is departing the series to explore other opportunities.
Holt recently wrapped filming on Syfy's six-hour space opera Ascension, which co-stars Battlestar Galactica alum Tricia Helfer and debuts in November.
TVLine first reported the news.
Cougar Town is expected to return in 2015.
