The date’s finally been set. Today, NBC announced season three of The Carmichael Show will premiere in May.
Loosely based on the life of series star and co-creator Jerrod Carmichael, the sitcom revolves around his relationships with his contrarian father, therapist-in training girlfriend, ever-hustling brother, and loud and proud Christian mother. The cast also includes Amber Stevens West, David Alan Grier, Lil Rel Howery, and Loretta Devine.
The new season of The Carmichael Show debuts on May 31st.
THE CARMICHAEL SHOW” – WEDNESDAY, MAY 31 AT 9 P.M.
Inspired by the life of comedian Jerrod Carmichael, the series follows Jerrod and his opinionated North Carolina family as they navigate topics that all families face in America today. Jerrod often finds himself debating such issues with his old-school father, Joe (David Alan Grier); his devoutly religious mother, Cynthia (Loretta Devine); his fianc&ecaute;e, Maxine (Amber Stevens West); his social media-loving brother, Bobby (Lil Rel Howery); and Bobby’s outspoken almost-ex-wife, Nekeisha (Tiffany Haddish). And somewhere in the middle of all of their disagreeing is the heart of this family.
For its first two seasons, the series has received stellar reviews, including “‘The Carmichael Show’ consistently feels surprising,” from The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times adding, “‘The Carmichael Show’ balances pointed topicality with humor.”
