‘Black-Ish’ continues to be the gift that keeps giving. Because the show has birthed yet another spin-off named ‘Mixed-Ish.’
Following the success of ‘Grown-Ish’ on sister station Freeform, ABC have made a straight to series order of the new show.
A prequel of sorts, it’ll be set in the 80s and chronicle the early life of Tracee Ellis Ross‘ character Rainbow Johnson. It’ll have a focus on her experiences being mixed race.
‘Mixed-Ish,’ which is co-written by ‘Black-Ish’ creator Kenya Barris and exec produced by Ross + Anthony Anderson, will premiere as a backdoor-pilot during a future episode of ‘Black-Ish.’
Before then, check out the first look trailer for the show (which co-stars Tika Sumpter) below…
We’re all sorts of here for this; and would love to see other shows hone in on the concept of spin-offs that can run concurrently with the original show.
