The comedy will return for Season 2.
January 25, 2019
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.
I really hope viewers will give this show a chance if they haven't already. The male-male relationship is perfectly balanced by the female-female relationship. And whoever chose the name Grover Johnson for the white boy chose perfectly!
I'm already looking forward to another season.
