“We are thrilled to bring back Cedric, Niecy and ‘The Soul Man’ for another season,” said Jones. “TV Land has loved working with this cast and crew who come together each week and create one of the funniest half-hours on TV.”
“The Soul Man” follows R&B star-turned minister Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine (Cedric) and his wife Lolli (Nash) who are learning to adjust to a new life after relocating from Las Vegas to St. Louis. Wesley Jonathan also stars as Cedric’s brother Stamps.
The series has been picked up for 12 new episodes and follows a season studded with guest stars Brandy, Martin Lawrence, David Alan Grier, Yvette Nicole Brown and more.
Cedric and Suzanne Martin (“Hot in Cleveland”) serve as co-creators and executive producers of the sitcom, along with Eric C. Rhone of Bird and a Bear Entertainment, and Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions. Keith Cox and Larry W. Jones are executive producers for TV Land.
The fourth season will premiere in 2015.
