Are you excited for The Detour Season 5? I know you are excited because this is the reason you landed up here while searching for The Detour Season 5.

Have you ever been on a road trip with your family?

If yes, then you must be knowing how painful and fun it is?

A road trip with a family is a mix of excitement but with lots of drama. Unfortunately, nothing goes as per your planning; instead, many goof-ups waiting for you in your journey.

The Detour Season 4 Trailer 

One such series where you will get to see the family road trip adventure is The Detour. It is an American comedy television series that is created by Jason Jones and Samantha Bee. Season one aired on TBS from 11th April 2016 to 20th August 2019 and had last season on June 18, 2019

The series is all about a family who is going on a road trip for a vacation. But like every family road trip, you cannot expect it to be smooth and happy going.

The Detour Season: Plot

You will find Nate Parker, the father, Robin Randall, the wife, and their children, Twins: Delilah and Jared, as the main characters in the series. They start their journey from their home in Syracuse, New York, heading towards Florida for the vacation.

If your car doesn’t give up on you on a road trip, is that a real road trip?

I don’t think so, when you are on a road trip, some fault in your car is mandatory to happen right?

Similarly, in this series, it is not only the car trouble that happens, but also other troubles amidst their voyage like unforeseen medical mishaps, law enforcement, etc.

Everything Nate had planned went into vain, and there were unexpected circumstances that Nate’s family had to go through.

But not only was the road trip troubling, but before the family left for the vacation, Nate had caused some professional trouble as well.

If you want to know what he did before leaving for the road trip, then you should definitely watch the series.

But after the four seasons of The Detour, will there be season 5 now?

Should the fans wait for season 5 or not?

The Detour Season 5 Release Date

As far as any official statement for The Detour Season 5 is considered, there are no comments as such. But when season 4 was going to launch on 18th June 2019, the posts that were published around its launch had a clue about Detour Season 5 in its caption.

If you open the post below, you will see that it’s written “#TheDetour season finale and the rest of season 4?” from this caption, we can infer that season 4 was the final season, and we cannot expect any further season for it.

But the rumours also have some news, which says that the ratings for season 4 dipped down, which is speculated to be one of the reasons behind the cancellation of season 5.

 As in the chart shown below, you can compare the ratings in the 18-49 demographic and the number of viewers for seasons 3 and 4. This comparison will make most of the things clear for us.
