The Neighborhood Season 3 spoilers
While The Neighborhood is a sitcom, it plans to deal with a very important and hot-topic theme in Season 3.
TV Line reports that an entire episode will deal specifically with the Black Lives Matter movement.
Cedric the Entertainer is the executive producer of the show, as well as one of its stars, and he spoke out about the episode and said he believes it will be more personal for viewers.
“Like most Black families, when it’s close enough to home, it’s enough to get you nervous. You realize, ‘oh! I was on that street,’ or ‘I know that guy’s family,’ or whatever. It’s enough to make you really identify [with] it,” Cedric said.
The Neighborhood showrunner Jim Reynolds said he feels this sitcom is uniquely positioned to address the Black Lives Matter movement and call for social justice.
“Being a show that addresses issues of race, we really have a responsibility to use our platform to say something — both to validate and honor the experiences of some of our audience, while also trying to give insight to and enlighten other parts of our audience,” Reynolds said.
In the episode, both the Butler and Johnson families set out to help the victim of police brutality but end up embroiled themselves. When Calvin’s son Malcolm finds himself at risk, it should drive the point home that these situations can spiral out of control.
Outside of that, Reynolds said that they would not bring the COVID-19 pandemic into the world of The Neighborhood.
“I felt strongly that we should not set the show in a COVID world. Initially, we were wondering if we could figure out a way that we could kind of address it without featuring COVID,” Reynolds said.
“However, when the Black Lives Matter movement really took off, we knew that that was the issue that would be a more appropriate one for us to deal with.”
CBS has yet to announce when The Neighborhood Season 3 will premiere.
