In a year like 2020, many people just wanted to laugh at something lighthearted to take their minds off of everything else that was going wrong. Because of this, it was all the more disappointing when the CBS sitcom The Neighborhood was unable to air its season 2 finale.
People who wanted to see more hijinks involving a white Midwestern family moving into a predominantly Black neighborhood in Pasadena, California, would have to wait a little while longer before they could see it because the stakes were not as high as they were in drama series such as The Walking Dead and The Flash. The fate of the world may not have been in jeopardy in this situation.
Thankfully, the third season of the series began airing later in the year and appears to have successfully returned to its original trajectory. As a consequence of this, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that CBS moved quickly to renew the show for a fourth season, which will begin airing in February 2021 (via TVLine).
That indicates that viewers will get to witness additional antics that take place within the improbable friendship that Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer) and Dave Johnson share (Max Greenfield). If you have been a devoted viewer of The Neighborhood over the course of the past few years, then you will definitely want to keep reading in order to get an idea of everything that is coming up in the upcoming fourth season (that we know about so far).
When Can We Expect to See the Fourth Season of the Neighborhood?
The production of season 4 of The Neighborhood should go much more smoothly than it did in 2020 due to the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic is beginning to wind down. The first episode of Season 3 did not air until November, as opposed to September like in the previous year, when it had previously happened.
Although there has not been an official announcement made regarding a specific date for the release of season 4, it seems like the most logical time for it to occur would be in the fall of this year, most likely at some point between the months of September and November.
We have a good feeling that the sitcom will maintain its regular time slot on Monday nights, which airs during the same block as Bob Hearts Abiola. Thom Sherman, senior executive vice president of programming for CBS Entertainment, expressed his excitement over the renewal of the shows in a statement that was published on TVLine.
In the statement, he said that “The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abishola masterfully blends humor with relatable and culturally relevant storylines” and that the shows “are tremendous, successful Monday night anchors.” There is no question that an army of followers agrees with him.
Who is Will Be Appearing in Episodes of the Fourth Season of the Neighborhood?
It is anticipated that the majority of the original cast will return for the sequel, with Cedric the Entertainer and Max Greenfield likely to play their respective lead roles of Calvin and Dave once again. Beth Behrs should play the role of Dave’s wife Gemma, and Tichina Arnola should play the role of Calvin’s wife Tina.

Hank Greenspan should play the role of Dave’s son Grover, and Sheaun McKinney should play the role of Calvin’s older son Malcolm. Marcel Spears should play the role of Calvin’s younger son Marty. The show also has a history of inviting other comedic actors, such as Wayne Brady, Gary Anthony Williams, Brian Posehn, Riki Lindhome, and Marla Gibbs, to appear in the show in recurring or guest-starring roles.
We are still keeping our fingers crossed that one of Max Greenfield’s former co-stars from New Girl will pay him a visit during the upcoming season, despite the fact that there has been no confirmation regarding who might be making an appearance in the neighborhood. The regular cast of The Neighborhood already possesses such a high level of talent that adding anyone else to the cast would just be icing on the cake.
What is the Storyline for the Fourth Season of the Neighborhood?
A surprising amount of political commentary has been included throughout the episodes of The Neighborhood, despite the fact that the show is primarily known for the crazy antics typical of sitcoms. In point of fact, the first episode of the third season of the show dealt with the topic of police brutality. The plot of the episode centered on Malcolm attending a Black Lives Matter demonstration after one of his friends was assaulted by the police.
This is one sitcom that hasn’t been afraid to tackle important issues, as evidenced by episodes dealing with topics such as gentrification and the controversy surrounding the flying of the Confederate flag. You can anticipate that the fourth season will continue to keep its finger on the pulse of what’s going on in the political climate of 2021.

There have also been episodes in recent years that have been on the sillier side, such as the plot of season 3 revolving around Dave starting a “dad rock” band, which eventually gets taken over by Tina. Because of this, there is a little something for everyone, which means that regardless of how you like to unwind on a Monday night, there is a good chance that there are episodes that you will enjoy watching. If you’ve been watching The Neighborhood up to this point, it’s going to be well worth your time to stick around for the fourth season, which isn’t going to arrive for a while yet.
