Laugh-lovers, rejoice! The beloved comedy series, ‘The Neighborhood,’ is set to return with its sixth season, promising more hilarity and heartwarming moments. However, the journey to this upcoming season has been anything but straightforward.
A Long-Awaited Return
Fans eagerly anticipating the return of ‘The Neighborhood’ have had to exercise their patience muscles a bit longer than expected. Initially slated for a fall 2023 comeback, the sixth season faced setbacks due to the Hollywood strikes, leading to a rescheduled release date.
CBS recently confirmed that the show is slated to premiere on Monday, Feb. 12, 2024, at 8 p.m. ET on the network, with episodes available for streaming the following day on Paramount+.
Impact by Strikes
The series, like many others, was significantly affected by the writer’s and actors’ strikes that disrupted the entertainment industry. Plans for the show’s return were delayed, with no scripts being penned and production coming to a halt. However, as of late, there’s a glimmer of hope. The Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) reached an agreement, concluding the writer’s strike and allowing writers’ rooms, including that of ‘The Neighborhood,’ to reopen.
Moreover, the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) and AMPTP also negotiated a tentative agreement, signaling the end of the actor’s strike. This paved the way for stars like Cedric the Entertainer and Max Greenfield, among others, to resume filming for the much-anticipated sixth season.
The Neighborhood Season 5 Recap
In the fifth season of The Neighborhood, Dave and Gemma’s lives take a surprising turn when Dave’s estranged father, Lamar, suddenly reappears after 30 years. Dave struggles to reconcile with Lamar while also dealing with his own feelings of abandonment. Meanwhile, Calvin and Marty face challenges as they try to launch their new business, a bar and grill called “Calvin’s Pit Stop.” The new business sparks protests from some residents who are concerned about gentrification, and Calvin and Marty must find a way to balance their entrepreneurial dreams with the needs of their community.
Throughout the season, the Johnson and Butler families continue to navigate the ups and downs of life, from celebrating Grover’s 13th birthday to dealing with a mountain lion scare in the neighborhood. They also find time to support each other through personal struggles, such as Tina’s difficulty finding the perfect birthday gift for Calvin and Gemma’s efforts to secure a celebrity endorsement for their new school play.
In the season finale, Calvin makes a difficult decision to sell Calvin’s Pit Stop to developers. This decision is met with mixed reactions from the neighborhood, but Calvin ultimately feels that it is the best decision for his family. The season ends with Calvin and Tina preparing to take the honeymoon they never had, and Dave finally finding closure with his father.
A Shorter Season, But the Same Charm
While fans might have to adjust to a shorter season, with only 10 episodes confirmed for season 6, the essence and charisma of ‘The Neighborhood’ are set to remain intact. Previous seasons typically spanned 22 episodes, but the constrained schedule due to the strikes necessitated a more concise season.
The Neighborhood Season 6 Cast
