Reynolds leaves the sitcom after three seasons with reports of complaints about his leadership style.

Jim Reynolds, the creator, executive producer and showrunner of The Neighborhood, is leaving the CBS sitcom, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Reynolds is exiting the series after three seasons, with reports emerging that there were complaints about his leadership style, including on race-related issues. Deadline reports two Black writers left the show after finishing work on season three.

CBS declined to comment on the matter.

The Neighborhood tells the story of the Johnson family, overly earnest Midwesterners who move into a predominately Black neighborhood in Pasadena. The cast includes Cedric the Entertainer, Max Greenfield, Sheaun McKinney, Marcel Spears, Hank Greenspan, Tichina Arnold and Beth Behrs.

The Neighborhood wrapped its third season in March and has been renewed for a fourth.

Deadline was the first to report the news of Reynolds' exit from The Neighborhood.
