We’re looking forward to a show on Freeform that isn’t The Bold Type. Blackish is one of the best shows on television, so is it any shock that we’re looking for the spin-off, Grown-ish. The show will premiere January 3rd on Freeform with back to back episodes.
If you haven’t heard of the show, it stars Yara Shahidi, who we admire greatly. Her Blackish character Zoey, has headed off to Southern California University and we’ll be following her new life in college. We’ll watch her tackle all of the issues that the students and the administrators are going to face their Freshman year.
We can’t wait.
Yara Shahidi is one of our favorite young actors. Not only is she mad talented, she’s also an activist in real life and we can’t help but admire all that she stands up for.
“At Freeform, we are committed to our audience; and this past year, we refined our programming strategy to be a destination for trendsetting originals that champion youth culture,” said Freeform president Tom Ascheim. “Our upcoming slate is our biggest, boldest and most diverse ever–we look forward to making each show its own event and delivering empowering and entertaining originals to our viewers.”
Grown-ish will premiere on Freeform with back-to-back episodes on Jan. 3. We’ll be watching. Will you?
