This Black-Ish Star Just Landed A Spin-Off…

ABC’s Black-ish is close to snagging a spinoff, but there’s a twist.

As the spinoff gets closer to closing a deal, the series home will not be ABC. According to Hollywood Reporter, A source revealed that ABC’s younger-skewing corporate sibling Freeform would pick up the series starring Black-ish star, Yara Shahidi. Freeform is already the home to forthcoming Alone Together and Marvel’s New Warriors as well as comedies such as Baby Daddy and Young and Hungry.

The new series who’s show runner is Kenya Barris, is similar to A Different World, the spinoff to Bill Cosby’s, The Cosby Show, as it will revolve around Shahidi’s character, Zoey Johnson going off to college.

Freeform is expected to make a formal announcement after the upfronts.
