The Neighborhood Season 5 Plot
The official plot summary of the upcoming season has not been released as of September 8, 2022, as it is still way too early for such information to be disclosed by the network. We suggest that you be patient for some time, as CBS will certainly share these in the coming weeks. On the other hand, the upcoming season is expected to pick up from the finale episode of the fourth season, which is the 22nd episode, Welcome to the Ring, released on May 23, 2022.
The episode was directed by Victor Gonzalez and written by Dan Cross & David Hoge. The episode is estimated to be viewed by 5.91 million US viewers.

I look forward to a fun, funny season.”
The Neighborhood Season 5 Episodes
