"Grown-ish" is returning for another season! Freeform renewed the spinoff series for season five on March 7, while also announcing that "Black-ish" star Marcus Scribner will join the cast to reprise his role as Andre Johnson Jr. Scribner will star alongside his onscreen sister, Yara Shahidi, as he embarks on his own journey of being "grown."
"Black-ish" executive producer Courtney Lilly and producer Zakiyyah Alexander both join the series as the show's new showrunners. Shahidi, Kenya Barris, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Craig Doyle, Helen Sugland, E. Brian Dobbins, and Michael Petok will produce the fifth installment.
"Grown-ish" is currently airing new episodes for its fourth season, which is centered around graduation for the show's seniors — which include Zoey (Shahidi), Luca (Luka Sabbat), Jazz (Chlöe), Doug (Diggy Simmons), Ana (Francia Raisa), and Nomi (Emily Arlook) — so it's still unclear what season five will explore.
Ahead of the show's renewal news, Sabbat posed the same question about the show's future. "What happens after graduation? We're not in college anymore. So how do you explore all these different character developments . . . Who are you going to follow?" he asked POPSUGAR. "There's so many different ways it could go. That's why it's hard to really say how it does happen, because college is the one thing that brought all these characters together." Details around season five and additional casting news will be announced at a later date.
