The Neighborhood is renewed for season 3 in 2020-2021
CBS has announced the renewal of its third highest-rated sitcom ‘The Neighborhood’ for a third season.

With a cool flip of social reality, the show revolves around a super-friendly white guy who moves into a predominantly black neighborhood.

When the two opposites collide, comedic conflicts and hilarious situations arise that are at the heart of this remarkable show.

This sparks a discussion about the new social movements in the family. The producer told TVLine “Like most Black families, when it’s close enough to home, it’s enough to get you nervous”. Showrunner Jimmy Reynols added “We felt that our show is… uniquely positioned to address the Black Lives Matter movement and the call for social justice”.
With over 6 million viewers, the show conveys the message of accepting differences
The renewal announcement came after the second season successfully garnered 6.25 million viewers.

Under all the hilarity, the message is loud and clear: learn to accept the differences with an open mind and a tender heart.

About this show:
The Neighborhood stars Cedric the Entertainer in 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. Their opinionated next-door neighbor, Calvin Butler, is wary of the newcomers, certain that the Johnsons will disrupt the culture on the block. However, Calvin’s gracious wife, Tina, rolls out the welcome wagon; their chipper younger son, Marty, thinks the Johnsons could be good for the community; and their unemployed older son, Malcolm, finds Dave may finally be someone who understands him. Dave realizes that fitting into their new community is more complex than he expected, but if he can find a way to connect with Calvin, they have an excellent chance of making their new neighborhood their home.
