I must admit that I have heard nothing but HIGH PRAISES for Yara Shahidi’s ‘black-Ish’ spin-off ‘grown-Ish’. I have not watched it just because it’s not quite my demographic and I am busy getting these blog posts together for you guys. Season 2 is gearing up for a return in January and they have just rolled out the PROMOS!
The new promotional video is HERE and it is inspired by the opening credits of the classic sitcom, A Different World.
The promo includes a ’90s-R&B inspired version of the show’s theme song, sung by Chloe x Halle.
The official description for the sophomore year: After the wide-eyed firsts of their freshman year, season two of Grown-ish follows Zoey and her friends as they enter their second year at CalU with confidence and swagger. Learning from the ups and downs of their first year, they all think they’ve got their second year on lock, but quickly realize that they’re not as grown as they think.
Shahidi leads the cast as popular but entitled Zoey Johnson, joined by Trevor Jackson as socially conscious Aaron Jackson, Francia Raisa as outspoken conservative Latina Ana Torres, Emily Arlook as openly and actively bisexual Nomi Segal, Jordan Buhat as troublemaker Vivek Shah, Chloe Bailey and Halle Bailey as twins and sporty-savants Jazz Forster and Sky Forster, Luka Sabbat as mellow and fashion-forward Luca Hall, and Deon Cole as eccentric and unpredictable Professor Charles Telphy.
The new season premieres Jan. 2 on Freeform.
