TV Land Renews 'Soul Man' For A 3rd Season (Cedric 'The Entertainer' & Niecy Nash Star)

TV Land has given the green light to a third season of The Soul Man starring CedricThe Entertainer,” Niecy Nash and Wesley Jonathan, it was announced today via press release by Larry W. Jones, President of TV Land.

The new season will premiere in the spring of 2014 with eight episodes.

“We’re so proud to have this show in our portfolio of sitcoms,” said Jones. “Fans of ‘The Soul Man’ are the drivers behind the success of the series. Because of their passion, we are able to continuously bring new viewers to the channel.”

The Soul Man follows R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine (Cedric) after he relocates from Las Vegas to St. Louis with his wife Lolli (Nash). While learning to adjust to their new humble life, they have plenty of obstacles in their way. One of these is Boyce’s 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).

Over the last two seasons, The Soul Man averaged a healthy 3.7 rating among African American Women 25-54 and a 3.0 rating with African-American Adults 25-54, according to Nielsen. 

Cedric and Suzanne Martin (Hot in Cleveland) are executive producers of the sitcom, along with Eric C. Rhone, as well as Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions, who also executive produce Hot in Cleveland.

Cedric is a great entertainer. But this show really sucks. They need better writers. It is not funny at all. Everybody else in this series need to go back to acting school. And, especially the wife Nash. Can somebody help get me a job on the show. The first time I seen it, the line was so lame. Can somebody please give me a spot on this show, or a spot on the food network. Cedric need to find the same people that produce and wrote the Steve Harvey Show. He was really funny, him and Lovetta really was good….


Niecy Nash is so over the top.. it makes me want to scream.. with that voice …. she really needs to tone it down… now she's on the HBO show Getting On.. and she's actually ok… on that..I don't think its going to make it but its an ok show…

and the actor that plays the brother as well .. he sticks to high heaven as well…. I watch the show but only for Cedric The Entertainer and the actor that plays the dad…
