TVLine and TV Guide both report that we'll be losing a member of the Cul-de-Sac Crew come the final season of Cougar Town, airing in spring of 2015 - and while his character hasn't exactly been integral to the show in every way, you can bet that he will most definitely be missed in season 6.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Brian Van Holt — who has played Bobby “Penny Can” Cobb since the show’s launch on ABC in 2009 — will depart at the start of the TBS comedy’s sixth andfinal season.
According to a C-Town insider, Van Holt — who recently wrapped production on the Syfy limited series Ascension — is leaving early to pursue other opportunities.
The Cul-de-Sac Crew is set to bid farewell to Van Holt’s Bobby in the Season 6 premiere, which is slated to air in early 2015.
Honestly we can't blame Brian Van Holt for wanting to pursue something other than Cougar Town (hey, we love the show, but it's Cougar Town), but this is Bobby we're talking about!
Are you going to miss Bobby Cobb on Cougar Town in season 6?
