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.
