This calls for a celebratory block party: CBS has given The Neighborhood an early Season 6 renewal.
As production on the 100th episode started Monday, the renewal news was announced.
“The Neighborhood has become a hit by not only delivering laughs, but also by telling stories of cultural impact,” CBS Entertainment President Amy Reisenbach said in a statement. “From gentrification to Black Lives Matter, to addiction and pregnancy loss, these incredible writers and this incredible cast push boundaries and endlessly entertain us. As they film their 100th episode this week, directed by Cedric the Entertainer, we are thrilled to announce that we will bring this outstanding series back for a sixth season.”
Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer) and Dave (Max Greenfield) and their wives, Tina (Tichina Arnold) and Gemma (Beth Behrs) play Calvin and Tina's sons Malcolm and Marty, while Hank Greenspan plays Dave and Gemma's son Grover.
Ghosts (renewed for Season 3) and Young Sheldon (renewed for Season 7) were previously handed early renewals by CBS. Bob Hearts Abishola, currently in Season 4, is still awaiting a replacement (though Season 5 is listed as a "sure thing" on TVLine's Renewal Scorecard.
The Neighborhood's fifth season will continue tonight (8/7c). After Tina insists Calvin find something to do in retirement, he decides to enter a competitive cornhole tournament (even though he has never played before). Also, Marty plans a elaborate "groom-posal" to ask Malcolm to be his best man.
