Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by series star Cedric the Entertainer, THE NEIGHBORHOOD is a half-hour sitcom 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.

Season 2 of THE NEIGHBORHOOD premiered on Monday, September 23, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT on CBS. In the season opener, "Welcome to the Re-Rack," one year after the Johnsons moved next door to the Butlers, Dave is eager to take on a bigger role in Calvin's annual Yardecue and prove how much a part of the community he's become. But Calvin's reaction makes it clear that, while the relationship between the two families has grown, the friendship between Calvin and Dave still has a way to go. On Monday, January 6, 2020 at 8pm ET/PT, CBS debuted "Welcome to the Freeloader," the winter premiere of THE NEIGHBORHOOD. Dave's patience is tested when Gemma's freeloading sister, Brittany (guest star Deborah Baker Jr.), suddenly shows up with plans for an extended stay. Also, Calvin grows frustrated that Malcolm is still living at home, even with a new job.
On Monday, May 4, 2020 from 8-9pm ET/PT, CBS premiered the Season 2 finale of THE NEIGHBORHOOD, debuting back-to-back new episodes:

"Welcome to the Speed Bump" (8pm): A near-accident awakens Dave's sense of civic duty, prompting him to team up with Calvin to try to improve the safety of their community. Also, a trip to the county fair turns into a nerve-wracking adventure for Malcolm, Marty and Grove. Guest cast: Richard Gant (Walter), Malik S. (Trey), Sloan Robinson (Old Miss Kim), and Staci Lynn Fletcher (Lil Hatchet).

"Welcome to the Campaign" (8:30pm): Dave makes a run for city council, working hard to earn Calvin's support, only to have a controversial photo threaten to derail his entire campaign. Wayne Brady guest stars as longtime incumbent Isaiah Evans. Additional guest cast: Malik S. (Trey), Earthquake (Que), Sean Larkins (Randall), and Joshua Triplett (Jeremiah).
