No more sex, booze and paying the bills naked. After 20 years of parenting, empty nesters Mike and Martina are finally reclaiming their wild side. But when both of their two grown daughters unexpectedly move back in and Mike's parents scratch their plans to spend their golden years in Florida, their roost is full again. This new (and very timely) family comedy proves that life is crazy with a full house, especially the second time around.

Crowded is an American sitcom that aired on NBC from March 15 to May 22, 2016. The series was created by Suzanne Martin, executive produced by Martin, Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner, through their Hazy Mills Productions, and produced in association with Universal Television. Like their other series Hot in Cleveland, this multi-camera sitcom is recorded in front of a live studio audience. The series was greenlit to order by NBC on May 7, 2015. The show debuted as a mid-season entry in the 2015–16 television season, with a 13-episode order. On May 13, 2016, NBC cancelled the series after only a single season and only 13 episodes.
Mike (Patrick Warburton) and Martina Moore (Carrie Preston) put aside their plans and newfound freedom when their two adult daughters, Stella (Mia Serafino) and Shea (Miranda Cosgrove), unexpectedly move back into their Seattle home after college graduation to figure out what they will do with their lives. Mike also learns that his retired father Bob (Stacy Keach) and his stepmother Alice (Carlease Burke) have decided to stay in town to help with Stella and Shea instead of moving to Florida. The family has to learn to live together again, despite the reluctance of Mike and Martina.
