Before we can swim any deeper into the drama between Wade Felton and his closest friends, there's a glitch in the matrix we must endure – 'The Unicorn' is not airing any new episode from Season 2 tonight. For those aching to find out the aftermath of Wade and Ben's work ethic conflict or Delia getting shaded by Michelle, the wait for the CBS comedy to return with its brand new episode will be slightly longer than usual. In that, there won't be a new 'The Unicorn' episode until the very next year.

The reason? In case you didn't notice it at the end of the December 17 episode, 'The Unicorn' Season 2 is going on its winter break following Episode 4, but worry not, we've got you covered on when you can expect it to return.

According to TV listings, the new Episode 5 of Season 2 titled 'The First Supper' will air all the way in 2021, on Thursday, January 7, at 9.30 pm only on CBS. The reason behind the break is, of course, the designated winter one, where many of the network shows space out their 22-24 episodes per season by taking time off during the holiday season. They know nobody would enjoy spending another minute glued to the screen when the prospect of meeting your loved ones and enjoying some quality time with them is on the horizon. Sounds particularly appealing after spending a whole year in self-quarantine, so why bother with airing their finest comedy on the telly, right?

CBS has also kept the best in store for when the comedy finally returns to the network; according to the official synopsis of 'The First Supper', "When Wade decides to introduce Shannon to his friends, things take an awkward turn; Noah tries to fit in with the older kids; Forrest overindulges in edibles." Nothing better than middle-aged parents trying to be edgy and cool, right?

However, for those wondering what to do while 'The Unicorn' enjoys its sweet little time off, fret not. CBS has taken care of that too. As Season 2 goes on break from airing new episodes, the usual 9.30 pm Thursday slot will be filled by older episodes from Season 1 of the CBS comedy. Namely, this coming week, Season 1 Episode 13 titled 'Worst Case Scenario' will air on December 24, and the week after that, Season 1 Episode 8 titled 'Turkeys and Traditions' will air on December 31. So if you're in the mood for some much-needed Feltons and their friends around the holiday season, you won't be missing out all that much. You can always tune in to CBS on Thursday nights at 9.30 pm to revisit the past episodes.
