The Neighborhood is coming back for a sixth season.
CBS announced Monday the hit comedy series has been renewed for the 2023-2024 broadcast season, just as the show’s 100th episode was filmed this week.
“The Neighborhood has become a hit by not only delivering laughs but by telling stories of cultural impact,” Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement.
“From gentrification to Black Lives Matter, to addiction and pregnancy loss, the incredible writers and this amazing cast push boundaries and endlessly entertain us,” Reisenbach added.

The comedy explores what happens when a white family moves into a predominantly Black neighborhood in the Los Angeles area.
The series stars Cedric the Entertainer, Max Greenfield, Beth Behrs, Tichina Arnold, Sheaun McKinney, Marcel Spears and Hank Greenspan.
Urban Hollywood 411 previously spoke with Cedric the Entertainer, who also serves as an executive producer on the series, about tackling difficult topics on network TV.
“We try not to be preachy with the subject matter, but we do want to be real,” the actor and comedian said. “We’re not HBO or anything, so we know we don’t have the room to just kind of really push hot buttons, but they [CBS] do want the show to be interesting for America and to have a bit of an edge.”
In its fifth season, the series averaged 6.13 million viewers on Monday nights, with the audience growing to over 7.3 million viewers with live+35 day viewing on linear and streaming platforms.
The series is created by Jim Reynolds and produced by CBS Studios.
Additional executive producers include Bill Martin, Mike Schiff, Aaron Kaplan, Wendi Trilling, and Eric Rhone.
The Neighborhood airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and is available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
