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.
