Will We See Grown-Ish Season 6?

"Grown-ish," the popular "Black-ish" spin-off series, will return for a sixth season, Freeform has confirmed (via Deadline). Created by Kenya Barris ("You People") and Larry Wilmore (the co-creator of "Insecure"), the single-camera comedy series follows the oldest of the Johnson family children as they attend college and begin their journey into adulthood ... only to discover that not everything goes their way after leaving home. While the first four seasons followed Yara Shahidi's ("The Sun Is Also A Star") Zoey, the eldest daughter in the family until her graduation, the fifth season focuses on her brother Andre Junior (played by Marcus Scribner) and his time at the fictional ​​California University of Liberal Arts — the institution where his sister is regarded as a shining alumnus.

There aren't a lot of details on season 6 just yet, other than it will continue to focus on Junior and his ongoing collegiate misadventures. That said, here's a rundown of everything we do know at the moment!

The Johnsons will return

"Grown-ish" has often been praised for presenting an unseen perspective on the college experience and is led by a charming cast. The show is currently in its fifth season, with the midseason premiere scheduled to air later this month on Freeform. This season highlights Junior's trials and tribulations, particularly his attempt to step outside of Zoey's shadow. He wants to make his own mark on campus, but that's tough when your sister has already (and recently) set a pretty high standard.

Freeform has released a trailer for the upcoming second half of season 5, which highlights some of Junior's specific struggles — he has lingering feelings for his ex, his credit card is being declined at dinner dates, and oh, he might have a potential STI that could derail his plans of becoming "the big man on campus" (whatever that means). The trailer also teases Junior finally having a long-overdue conversation with Zoe about just how hard it's been for him to follow in her highly-successful footsteps, especially when everyone keeps reminding him he has a legacy to uphold. "I know you're the cool, older sister who needs to look out for me, but you don't need to do that for me anymore!" he tells her.

Along with Marcus Scribner and Yara Shahidi (who also serves as one of the show's executive producers), season 5 stars Trevor Jackson, Diggy Simmons, and Daniella Perkins. Considering the season only tackles Junior's first year at Cal U, and with season 6 already confirmed, it seems we may yet get to follow Junior all the way to his graduation!

"Grown-ish" season 5 will return on January 18, 2023.
