The upcoming third season of Cougar Town has had its order cut by seven episodes. ABC has scaled back the count from 22 to 15 for reasons unknown.
Originally planned as a midseason replacement, Season 3 of Cougar Town was notably absent from the network's recently-unveiled schedule. There has been no word on when the series will return, only that it will be back at some point.
