Is Tracee Ellis Ross leaving Black-ish? According to The Hollywood Reporter, the sitcom star may reduce her screen time on the ABC series if it’s renewed for a fifth season.
Ross plays Dr. Rainbow “Bow” Johnson on the comedy alongside fellow co-stars Anthony Anderson, Yara Shahidi, Marcus Scribner, Miles Brown, Marsai Martin, Peter Mackenzie, Jeff Meacham, Jenifer Lewis, Deon Cole, and Laurence Fishburne.
According to THR, Black-ish is currently in negotiations for a fifth season and Ross wants to decrease the pay disparity between herself and co-star Anthony Anderson. Apparently, Ross is being paid “significantly less” despite her status as the show’s co-lead.
If disparity continues, Ross will reportedly appear in fewer episodes of the ABC series’ possible fifth season.
