The Neighbors

the series philosopher The Neighbors wikiThe Neighbors is an American television science fiction sitcom, created by Dan Fogelman and airing on ABC. The story line revolves around a family of humans living in a community of extraterrestrials.

The series, set in New Jersey, revolves around a family that has relocated to a gated townhouse community called “Hidden Hills”. Upon their arrival, they discover that the entire community is populated by residents from another planet. Amongst their myriad quirks, these aliens identify themselves by the names of sports celebrities, patrol the community in golf carts, receive nourishment through their eyes and mind by reading books rather than eating, and cry green goo from out their ears. Since the aliens have assumed human form, they can also revert to their original appearances by clapping their hands above their heads. They have been stuck on Earth for 10 years, still awaiting instructions to return home.

The main cast includes:


  • Jami Gertz (Square Pegs, Still Standing) as Debbie Weaver
  • Lenny Venito (The Sopranos) as Marty Weaver
  • Simon Templeman (Charmed) as Larry Bird
  • Toks Olagundoye as Jackie Joyner-Kersee
  • Clara Mamet as Amber Weaver
  • Megan Park (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) as Jane
  • Tim Jo (Glory Daze) as Reggie Jackson


On May 9, 2014, ABC canceled The Neighbors after two seasons.
