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.

The second season 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.

Season 3 of THE NEIGHBORHOOD premiered on Monday, November 16, 2020 at 8pm ET/PT on CBS. Because of industry-wide COVID-19 production delays, CBS expects THE NEIGHBORHOOD to have 18 episodes in its third season. In the season opener, "Welcome to the Movement," the Butlers and Johnsons unite when a member of their community is the victim of racial injustice. After a three-week break, THE NEIGHBORHOOD returned with new episodes on Monday, January 4, 2021 at 8pm ET/PT on CBS. In the winter premiere, "Welcome to the Turnaround," Gemma's troublemaking sister, Brittany (guest star Deborah Baker Jr.), returns, claiming she's turned over a new leaf, thanks to a surprising new business venture. Also, Dave finally convinces Calvin to accompany him to an escape room, where they both get more than they bargained for.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD returned for its fourth season on Monday, September 20, 2021 at 8pm ET/PT on CBS. In the season opener, "Welcome to the Family," when Dave starts researching his genealogy, he makes a surprising discovery: he and Calvin are more than just neighbors. Also, Tina offers to help Gemma when she's overcome with morning sickness, and inadvertently stumbles on a new business idea. After a four-week break, THE NEIGHBORHOOD returned with new episodes on Monday, January 3, 2022 at 8pm ET/PT on CBS. In the winter premiere, "Welcome to Jury Duty," Calvin and Dave are both chosen to serve as jurors on the same trial. Also, Malcolm and Marty get a big surprise when they fail to ask what the movie's about after they rent out their house for a film shoot.
On Monday, May 23, 2022 at 8pm ET/PT, CBS premiered "Welcome to the Ring," the Season 4 finale of THE NEIGHBORHOOD. As Marty prepares to propose to his girlfriend, Calvin and Tina work with party planner Chika (guest star Gina Yashere) to throw a celebration that properly honors their future daughter-in-law's Nigerian heritage. Additional guest stars: Chelsea Harris (Necie), Rizi Timane (Akin), Shondrella Avery (Demi), and Warren Burke (Parker).

THE NEIGHBORHOOD returns in Fall 2022 for its fifth season in the show's regular timeslot: Mondays at 8pm on CBS.
