Within the context of its smaller audience, Freeform has had some success with its younger-skewing sitcoms. Now it’s breaking out the big guns. As a spinoff of ABC‘s Black-ish, the Grown-ish TV show comes with something of a built-in audience. Can the cable network lure enough viewers away from broadcast television? Will Grown-ish be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A coming-of-age comedy, Grown-ish stars Yara Shahidi, Deon Cole, Francia Raisa, Chloe Bailey, Halle Bailey, Jordan Buhat, Luka Sabbat, Trevor Jackson, Chris Parnell, and Emily Arlook, with Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross recurring. The Freeform TV show centers on Zoey Johnson (Shahidi), as she leaves the home of her parents, Dre and Rainbow (Anderson and Ross), and heads off to college. Now that she is finally out, and (mostly) on her own, Zoey will find that while college can be great, the fun and excitement are not without their costs. The more she learns, the more she realizes how little she knows.
