A comedy about what happens when the friendliest guy in the Midwest moves his family to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where not everyone looks like him or appreciates his extreme neighborliness. Dave Johnson is a good-natured, professional conflict negotiator. When his wife, Gemma, gets a job as a school principal in L.A., they move from Michigan with their young son, Grover, unfazed that their new dream home is located in a community quite different from their small town.
Dave is thrilled when Calvin invites him golfing, confident that it represents progress in their relationship, but Calvin may have another motive. Also, Gemma and Tina team up to pull off an unforgettable surprise for Malcolm, Marty and Grover.
CBS announced today that The Neighborhood has been picked up for a second season. The early good news comes in the midst of the comedy's freshman run.
The new series premiered last fall as part of the network's 2018-2019 lineup. After a strong first few weeks, the network wasted no time in topping up its initial 13-episode run with a back-nine order for a full season's worth of 22.
Airing Monday nights at 8:00pm, the half-hour series has held its own in the ratings department since its early October debut. Episodes are regularly the top-rated scripted entry in the time slot.
The Neighborhood follows a friendly Midwest family who has just moved in to a tough Los Angeles neighborhood, but not all of its residents appreciate their neighborly ways. Their new neighbor Calvin, played by Cedric the Entertainer, is particularly caught off-guard, worrying that his new neighbors will disrupt the culture on the block.
