Alas, we can’t say that the answer to this question is one that is going to make a lot of people thrilled. After all, there is no new episode of the show tonight, and you’re going to be waiting until Monday, January 4 to see what’s next. Why the break? It’s the same reason why we often have one this time a year: The holiday season. Networks want to air more Christmas Specials, and it makes sense for scripted shows to save their episodes to when they’ll get better ratings. This also allows a show like this a better chance to stay ahead in terms of producing new episodes — since filming rarely happens over the holiday season, they would otherwise fall behind.
Want to get a few more details now on what lies ahead when the show does return? then we suggest that you take a look at the attached synopsis:
“Welcome to the Turnaround” – Gemma’s troublemaking sister, Brittany (Deborah Baker Jr.), returns, claiming she’s turned over a new leaf, thanks to a surprising new business venture. Also, Dave finally convinces Calvin to accompany him to an escape room, where they both get more than they bargained for, on THE NEIGHBORHOOD, Monday, Jan. 4 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Hopefully, this episode is able to bring you some laughs to help kick off the new year, one that a lot of people probably hope is full of a little bit more laughter than what we saw for the better part of 2020. It will at least serve as a good source of familiarity and escapism — also, who doesn’t love fish-out-of-water stories involving an escape room?
