Just three episodes in, and black-ish spin-off, grown-ish, starring Yara Shahidi, has already been given the greenlight for a second season!
According to ShadownAndAct, the news was announced at the inaugural Freeform Summit on Thursday. Unlike the current season’s 13 episodes, season two will consist of 20 episodes as opposed to Season 1’s 13 episodes.
The show has effortlessly pulled in 4.5 million views across linear and digital platforms, which is the best digital debut in Freeform history (not to be sniffed at), according to the network. grown-ish was also the most social cable series on TV for Wednesday, with 214,000 engagements across Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr.
It didn’t even cross my mind for a second that the show wouldn’t be renewed for a second season. Watching Zoey and her circle of friends try and navigate the college-sphere has made for addictive watching!
