Over-ish: Yara Shahidi reveals when ‘Grown-ish’ will end in video message to fans

‘Adult’ star Yara Shahidi has some sad news for fans of the popular young adult series.

in one video message Published by Freeform on Wednesday, the actor and producer announced that the upcoming sixth season of Grown-ish will be her last. She also revealed that the final season will be in two parts: the first half will debut this summer, and the second will follow in 2024.

“Don’t be sad because we’re going to make it big,” Shahidi says in the clip.

“You’ve been with us since Season 1 and it’s been a great honor playing and growing up with Zoey for the past nine years. Your support over the past five seasons has really meant a lot to us – the cast and crew – and we want to take the time to thank you all for the love and support that has kept us going.”

Of course, Shahidi will reprise her role as Zoey Johnson, and Marcus Scribner will return in season six as her younger brother Andre “Junior” Johnson. Rounding out the series’ main cast are Trevor Jackson, Diggy Simmons and Daniella Perkins.

A Freeform rep couldn’t confirm whether singing duo Chlöe and Halle Bailey – whose careers have taken off in recent years – will return as sisters Jazz and Sky Forster in Season 6 of Grown-ish. Chlöe Bailey, who is currently starring in the lively Amazon limited series Swarm and is expected to release her debut solo album later this month, has appeared in a few episodes of Season 5; Halle Bailey, who plays Princess Ariel in Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, hasn’t been on the show since Season 4.

According to Shahidi, next season’s Grown-ish will feature some high-profile guest stars, including rapper Lil Yachty, musician Anderson .Paak and band The Free Nationals.

In January 2018, the first season of Grown-ish premiered as a spin-off of the hit ABC sitcom Black-ish, which centers on the Johnson family’s eldest child. Since then, the series has followed Zoey on her journey as an aspiring fashion designer from college freshman to recent graduate.

“We’ve spent almost a decade telling our stories in the -ish series and to say it’s been an amazing journey would be an understatement,” said the Black-ish and Grown-ish star -Creator Kenya Barris in a statement.

“Watching Yara, Marcus and our entire adult family grow up ahead of (and in many ways alongside) us over the past few years has been both a joy and an honor. … I couldn’t be prouder of everything we’ve accomplished and of the -ish family that I’ve been a part of.”
