Bobby has a girlfriend, Bobby has a girlfriend, Bobby has a girlfriend…
Well, he will for at least one episode nextÂ season. TVLine is reporting that Gillian Vigman hasÂ signed on to appear on Cougar TownÂ as a love interest for Bobby.Â She’ll be playing a woman named Mary, who picks Bobby up in a departmentÂ store andÂ spends the day with him inside theÂ store “vacationing”.
Bobby hasn’t done a whole lot of dating around during the first threeÂ seasons of the former ABC comedy, his first (and only)Â semi-serious post-Jules connection coming with Angie, Trav’s professor. Now that Jules and Grayson are officially husband and wife, it’ll be a weird time for Bobby; he doesn’t want to be with Jules, nor does he want to mess up her relationship, butÂ seeing his ex happy reminds him that he’s not happy. Not in his professional life and certainly not in his personal life, where we’ve gotten brief looks at the loneliness he’s had to deal with recently. Mary might not be the one for Bobby toÂ settle down with, but hopefully Bobby’s time with herÂ shows him that love is out there and one day, it’ll find him, too.
VigmanÂ recurs onÂ Suburgatory as Noah’s wife Jill, currently on her book tour following the birth of her baby; the actress has also appeared on the likes of Californication, New Girl, Parks and Recreation, and UnitedÂ States of Tara. Other guestÂ stars for the upcoming fourthÂ season of Cougar Town, its first onÂ TBS, include Alexandra Wentworth, while Bob Clendenin has been promoted toÂ series regularÂ status following threeÂ seasons as a recurring part of the ensemble.
The fourthÂ season of Cougar Town premieres Tuesday, January 8th at 10:00 on TBS. You can check out the announcement of the premiere date here.
