ABC has set the return date for Cougar Town.
The Courteney Cox comedy will premiere its 15-episode season 3 on Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 8:30 p.m., taking over the slot vacated by canceled sitcom Work It, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
The news, as TVLine first reported, comes one week after ABC entertainment chief Paul Lee told reporters at the winter Television Critics Assoc. press tour that Cougar Town will likely see a March return.
“We’re going to give [Cougar Town] a really good launch pad,” said Lee, who added that the show could be part of a block of “young comedies” with Happy Endings and midseason entrant Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23.
Co-creator Bill Lawrence embarked on a tour around the U.S., and threw an unofficial TCA cocktail mixer, to keep the show ingrained in people’s minds.
Since bowing in 2009, the series has faced an uphill battle amid a series of scheduling jumps. Last season, the half-hour was slotted for a spring return after more than two months off the air on a Monday night before continuing in its usual home two days later.
