Grown-ish is a spin-off of the ABC series Black-ish. The show follows the Johnsons’ eldest daughter Zoey (Yara Shahidi) as she heads off to college and begins her journey to adulthood but quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest.

She quickly makes a group of friends including Nomi, a white Jewish freshman who hasn’t yet come out to her family as bisexual.

The show is shot in a different style than Black-ish with a lot of Zoey talking directly into the camera. It has a similar vibe to The Bold Type comedy-wise.
