Angie Tribeca, created by Steve Carell, first debuted back in 2016. Season 3 concluded in June 2017, and while TBS had previously renewed the series for a fourth season, it was unclear when that season would air. Until now.
The first five episodes of Angie Tribeca will air Saturday night starting at 8:00 p.m. The remaining five episodes will then air Sunday, also starting at 8:00 p.m. You can also watch all 10 episodes on TBS.com or the TBS app.
TBS announced the news in a press release while also revealing new details about the upcoming season. According to the release, the series will pick up 20 years after Angie’s arrest:
“In season four, it’s been 20 years since the law wrongfully turned on Detective Angie Tribeca (Jones) and tossed her in jail. Now, Tribeca is out, reunited with her team, Lt. Atkins (Jere Burns), Dr. Scholls (Andrée Vermeulen), estranged son, Angie Jr. (Bobby Cannavale) and the young and brilliant Maria Charo (Kiersey Clemons) fighting for the good guys. Or so they think. No, they are. Or, are they? They are. Just kidding. Or are we?”
Cannavale and Clemons are newcomers to the cast for Season 4. Clemons’s character Maria is a tech genius who speaks 50 languages. However, she doesn’t understand computers, and she only speaks the aforementioned languages at a tourist level.
TBS also released a trailer for the new season. The footage shows plenty of the usual hijinks while promising that “this Angie Tribeca is not the Angie Tribeca you initially thought you forgot to know in the first place.”
Angie Tribeca has had plenty of famous guest stars over its first three seasons, including Rob Riggle, Niecy Nash, and Ed Helms. The new season continues that tradition with Saturday Night Live alum Taran Killam, Cannavale’s partner Rose Byrne, and legends Carol Burnett and Carl Reiner set to make guest appearances.
This is actually not the first time TBS has used a Netflix-esque strategy with Angie Tribeca. The first season of the satire series also debuted with a 25-hour marathon back in 2016. The strategy paid off, as the next two seasons saw a bump in ratings among adults ages 18-49. The third season was among the top 10 primetime cable comedies in 2017.
