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.
As Calvin and Tina near a milestone anniversary, Dave and Gemma decide to help the Butlers have the wedding they missed out on the first time around; Malcolm and Marty prepare an unforgettable performance for their parents' special occasion.
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.
