After temporarily suspending production of her ABC hit "Cougar Town" due to "a private family matter," ET has learned the fate of the show's production.

A rep for the series tells ET that production will continue on Monday, November 30, when Courteney will return back to work.

Over the weekend, a rep for ABC released the following statement to ET: "Production on 'Cougar Town' has been temporarily suspended in order for Courteney to tend to a private family matter."

In "Cougar Town," Courteney plays a 40-something woman who, following an ugly divorce, tries to get on with her life by dating younger men. The former "Friends" star is also a producer on the series.
