If you’re fan of NBC’s “The Carmichael Show,” there’s good news. The comedy series has been renewed by the network for a full 13 week season.
Inspired by the life and comedy of stand-up Jerrod Carmichael, the show follows Jerrod and his opinionated southern family as they reluctantly deal with modern-day America knocking at their front door.
Nothing is off-limits, including religion, sex, politics, mental health and gender identity. And no one’s stance is predictable as Jerrod is constantly trying to find the middle ground between his old-school father, Joe (David Alan Grier), his devoutly religious mother, Cynthia (Loretta Devine), his progressive fiancée, Maxine (Amber Stevens West), his endearingly innocent and recently separated brother, Bobby (Rel Howery) and Bobby’s estranged and outspoken wife, Nekeisha (Tiffany Haddish).
