Who will appear in Season 6?
The series stars Scribner, with Shahidi being a significant figure helping her younger brother adjust to college life. Trevor Jackson, Diggy Simmons, and Daniella Perkins round out the main cast.
Along with Kenya Barris, Zakiyyah Alexander, Courtney Lilly, Craig Doyle, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland, E. Brian Dobbins, and Michael Petok, Shahidi serves as an executive producer on the series. ABC Signature produces Grow-ish.
What can we expect from Grown-ish Season 6?
The first four seasons followed Zoey Johnson, played by Yara Shahidi, through her four years, ending in her graduation at the end of Season 4. In Season 5, the focus turned to her younger brother, Andre Johnson Jr., or Junior, played by Marcus Scribner.
The first part of the season, consisting of 9 episodes, will be released in September 2022, with the second half scheduled to explore an all-new semester as he finishes his first year at Cal U. We are still determining what will happen in the sixth season. Still, we can guess based on the season 5 trailer.
Freeform posted a trailer for the upcoming Grown-ish Season 5 Part 2, confirming the series’ Season 6 renewal. The new 1-minute 47-second trailer introduces us to Junior’s struggles and tribulations over the semester at Cal U. He’ll have to deal with money issues, shifting relationships, and lingering emotions for his ex, as well as the challenge of escaping from the shadow of his incredibly successful alumni sister.
While he occasionally trips over himself, he tries all in his ability to get back up and make the shift from Zoey’s little brother to the big guy on campus.
The trailer concludes with the brother-sister duo wondering if he has outgrown the “Junior” nickname, albeit they may have to continue with it until they come across a suitable replacement.
