Today we discovered that Cedric The Entertainer, Niecy Nash and the rest of the cast-and producers- discovered that TV Land has renewed The Soul Man for a third season!
Industry insiders say that the network has given the 8-episode order more than three months after season 2 of the show, which also stars Wesley Jonathan as it ended its run.
The industry sites state that the show was extremely strong with black viewers as it averaged a potent 3.7 rating among African-American Women 25-54 and a 3.0 rating with African-American Adults 25-54. Season 2 of the series posted gains of +103% among A25-54 and +111% among W25-54 (L+7) versus channel prime average.
The Soul Man, from Hazy Mills Productions follows R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine (Cedric) after he relocated from Las Vegas to St. Louis with his wife Lolli (Nash). While learning to adjust to their new humble life, Boyce has to deal with his brother Stamps (Jonathan), who seems to have taken up permanent residence in their house – and that’s only made worse when Stamps sparks a new relationship with Lolli’s sister (Kellee Stewart). Cedric and series creator Suzanne Martin are executive producing with Swartzlander, Eric C. Rhone, Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner.
