‘Black-ish’ Spin-off Titled ‘Grown-ish’
Yara Shahidi is Grown-ish!
ABC has announced that Grown-ish is the official spin-off name from the hit show, Black-ish.
Yara Shahidi has signed on to reprise her role as Zoey Johnson. Emily Arlook, Chris Parnell and Trevor Jackson have officially been cast as series regulars.
The Freeform show will begin production next month and will premiere in the beginning of 2018. The show will follow Zoey as she heads off to college.
“Grown-ish reflects what we’ll be dealing with in the show – that in between place where you’re not quite an adult but facing grown world problems for the first time,” Kenya Barris, the show’s creator and executive producer, said via a statement from Freeform. “Where ‘black-ish’ examines what it means to be black, grown-ish is an examination of what it is and what it means to be grown.”
