Extended Family Season 1 Episode 4 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Extended Family Season 1 Episode 4

Jon Cryer and Abigail Spencer star in NBC’s new sitcom, Extended Family. The show’s title is indicative of the refreshing new concept that the creators are going for. From the description of the plot by the stars, it looks like Extended Family is a modern spin on “conscious decoupling,” which basically means two separated parents raising their kids. Although such offerings are far and in between these days, there is excitement among viewers about the show’s central pairing.

The show’s official plot reads: “Jim and Julia, after an amicable divorce, decide to continue to raise their kids at the family home while taking turns on who gets to stay with them. Navigating the waters of divorce and child-sharing gets more complicated for Jim when Trey, the owner of his favourite sports team, enters the picture and wins Julia’s heart.”

Here is everything you need to know about Extended Family Season 1 Episode 4, including its release date, time, and where to watch this.

Where Can I Watch Extended Family?

Extended Family is an NBC exclusive. The new episodes will be available to watch on the cable network every week. Along with that, Peacock, which is NBC’s streaming platform, will also air the new episodes on Wednesday, a day after the original release. At this moment, we are not aware of other streaming options for readers outside the US and the UK. This can change going forward as NBC should plan a release for all its streaming partners. 

Extended Family Season 1 Episode 4 Release Date

Extended Family Season 1 Episode 4 will be released on Tuesday, 16 January 2024, 8/7c on NBC, exclusively. Expect the runtime to be roughly 23 minutes, which is consistent with expectations around a cable sitcom. The episode will be available to stream with subtitles. There may be a slight change in the scheduling going forward, which we will apprise our readers of in the weekly previews. 

For now, the series will stick to a Tuesday release every week until the season finale. The title of the new episode is “The Consequences of Sushi.” We currently do not have a tagline for this episode. 

How Many Episodes Will Extended Family Have?

Extended Family Season 1 will consist of 13 episodes, NBC has confirmed. After Episode 4 has aired, we will have another 9 episodes to go in Season 1 that will be released on a weekly schedule. NBC might make weekly schedule changes for new episodes owing to the holiday season but we will keep you updated.

What happened in Episode 3?

Episode 3 of Extended Family focuses on Julia’s return to The Nest after being out for a week. She was working on a crisis management for Pitbull on his luxurious yacht. However, she has come back to a dumpster fire. Jim had a lot of trouble looking after the kids for two weeks straight. The house is almost out of groceries, Jimmy Jr is addicted to a violent video game, and Grace has done poorly on her trigonometry test. She has also lost interest in the subject altogether.

Julia fails to come up with viable solutions. She fears that if Jr is exposed to the game long enough, he will become a sociopath. Jim, however, is only interested in relaxing and watching a Swedish detective series. Julia decides to rip off the wifi connection that temporarily stops Jr. However, he finds a way around this. Jr rents the wifi connection of a neighbour for five bucks an hour to continue playing the game.

Grace announces that since maths doesn’t have any real-life implications, she won’t study it from now on. When everyone is out of solutions, Trey steps in. He takes them to his alma mater, MIT. He introduces the duo to Professor Davenport, who is a Nobel prize winner. Davenport scares the kids by talking about climate change’s decimating impact on the world and future generations, which does the trick but makes the day-to-day life at The Nest a living hell.
