In the title compound, [Co(NCS)2(C19H17N5O2)2(CH3OH)2], the CoII atom lies on an inversion center and is coordinated by two isothiocyanate N atoms, two O atoms of methanol molecules and two pyridine N atoms in a slightly distorted octahedral environment. Intermolecular O—H⋯O and N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds join the complex molecules into layers parallel to the bc plane.
