Television audiences just got another season of fun with their new favorite sitcom family. Cedric the Entertainer confirmed via Twitter that his comedy series, The Soul Man, was renewed.
“Just got word The Soul Man has been picked up for season #2,” Cedric tweeted Tuesday night. “Thank all of you who wrote in and/or just watched me and Niecy Nash bout to Turn Up!”
