Junior Begins His Wild College Journey in the "Grown-ish" Season 5 Trailer
Acclaimed dramedy "Grown-ish" is soon returning with season five, and we're already counting down the days. The college-set Freeform series — a spinoff of ABC's "Black-ish," which concluded its eight-season run earlier this year — is back with a whole new storyline and a lot of fresh faces this season.
While the show originally followed Zoey (Yara Shahidi), the eldest daughter of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross) and Andre Johnson (Anthony Anderson), as she went off to college, the new graduate will share the spotlight with her onscreen brother Junior (played by Marcus Scribner) as he joins Cal U to begin his own higher-education journey.
Luca (Luka Sabbat), Jazz (Chlöe), Ana (Francia Raisa), Vivek (Jordan Buhat), and Nomi (Emily Arlook) also graduated last season, leaving many viewers wondering what will happen next in "Grown-ish." But the season five trailer, which arrived on July 6, finally sheds some light on where the show's plot is headed.
While Zoey and the gang enjoy post-graduation life, Junior and his crew arrive to mark a new beginning at Cal U. "Grown-ish" has always prioritized telling the story of an ensemble of young adults, as the writing deftly brings up relevant social issues surrounding racism, police brutality, and more. However, it's still unclear what direction season five will take.
When renewing "Grown-ish" for its fifth season, Freeform announced that this installment will see some creative changes, including "Black-ish" producer Zakiyyah Alexander and producer Courtney Lilly coming aboard as the new showrunners. But that's not the only crossover fans can look forward to. It's possible viewers may see some of the "Grown-ish" alum pop up for future episodes, too.
From its casting additions to its NSFW trailer, read on for all the details we know about "Grown-ish" season five.
