grown-ish

Freeform announced the start of production on season two of the critically acclaimed comedy series grown-ish. From black-ish executive producer Kenya Barris, grown-ish is a contemporary take on the current issues facing both students and administrators in the world of higher education. Produced by ABC Signature Studios and executive produced by Kenya Barris, Julie Bean, Jenifer Rice-Genzuk Henry, Craig Doyle, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland and E. Brian Dobbins, season two of grown-ish is set to debut in January 2019. Reprising their roles after a stellar freshman season are Yara Shahidi as Zoey Johnson, Trevor Jackson as Aaron Jackson, Francia Raisa as Ana Torres, Emily Arlook as Nomi Segal, Jordan Buhat as Vivek Shah and Deon Cole as "Professor Charles Telphy."

Chloe Bailey and Halle Bailey, real-life sisters who starred as twins and the sporty-savants Jazz Forster and Sky Forster, have been upped to series regulars. Their fan-favorite characters were a staple in the friend group throughout the first season, tackling topical conversations including dating as black women and the cutthroat world of college athletics. Outside of acting, the duo are Chloe x Halle, musical prodigies currently opening for Beyoncé and JAY-Z's "On The Run II" tour. Their debut album, "The Kids Are Alright" (Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia Records), includes "Grown," the theme song for grown-ish, which they co-wrote. Luka Sabbat also returns as a series regular for season two portraying Luca Hall, a mellow and fashion-forward classmate of Zoey's. While his methods are unconventional and subtle, he vies for Zoey's affection throughout the first season. Finally, reprising his role as Doug is musical artist, rapper and actor Diggy Simmons in a recurring role for season two.
