Season 2

The Neighbors is an American science fiction television sitcom created by Dan Fogelman and set in New Jersey which revolves around a family that has relocated to a gated townhouse community called "Hidden Hills" and who, upon their arrival, discover that the entire community is populated by residents from another planet.

Marty Weaver (Lenny Venito) just wants the best for his wife Debbie (Jami Gertz) and their three kids. That's why he's moving them to Hidden Hills, New Jersey, a gated community complete with its own golf course.

Marty is certain that their new home will be a dream come true. And then, they meet the neighbours.

The residents of Hidden Hills are a little... different. Larry Bird (Simon Templeman) introduces himself as the "leader" of the community. Then, he presents his wife, Jackie Joyner-Kersee (Toks Olagundoye) and their two sons (yes, they're named after famous athletes - Dick Butkus and Reggie Jackson).

After Debbie and Marty frantically try to make sense of the weird neighbours - very European? A cult? Amish athletes? - they discover that the entire Hidden Hills community is comprised of aliens from the planet Zabvron.

Turns out the Zabvronians have been holed up in Hidden Hills for the past 10 years, awaiting instructions from back home. And the Weavers are the first humans who have ever lived amongst them.

At first, the Weavers are ready to cut and run. But the aliens seem harmless enough. And there is a lot of closet space... So, they decide to stay and help their new neighbours adapt to life on this confusing planet we call home.

As the Weavers and the aliens face the struggles of everyday life together, they discover that some things - the ups and downs of marriage, the desire to be a good parent and raise a happy family - are universal. Intergalactic, even. And the Weavers realise they've found an ally in the family next door... even if they do cry out of their ears.

Two worlds will collide with hilarious consequences as everyone discovers they can "totally relate" and learn a lot from each other.

The Neighbors stars Jami Gertz as Debbie Weaver, Lenny Venito as Marty Weaver, Simon Templeman as Larry Bird, Toks Olagundoye as Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Clara Mamet as Amber Weaver, Tim Jo as Reggie Jackson, Ian Patrick as Dick Butkus, Max Charles as Max Weaver and Isabella Cramp as Abby Weaver.

The Neighbors was created by Dan Fogelman (Cars, Tangled, and Crazy, Stupid, Love), who is also an executive producer with Aaron Kaplan (GCB, Terra Nova), Jeff Morton (Modern Family) and Chris Koch (Workaholics, Modern Family), who also directed the pilot.

The Neighbors is from ABC Studios.
