It’s senior year for the Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi) at Cal U.
Freeform’s Grown-ish finally returns this Thursday! After taking some time off school to focus on being a stylist, Zoey is back to finish her final year with her friends and finally graduate. With Aaron and Zoey finally together after three years of “will they, won’t they,” the couple are trying to make it work.
The season’s key art is by Alexis Eke, an illustrator and designer based in Toronto. Inspired by Renaissance portraits and traditional Japanese art, she illustrates Black women in a contemporary light. Her technique combines portrait images with digital painting and. describes her art as a “mix between Afrofuturism and contemporary Renaissance.” Eke’s been commissioned by some respected brands like Nike, Adidas, Bloomberg, Refienry29, Bon Appetit, and pieces specific to the Civil Rights Organization, International Women’s Day, and Black History Month.
Based on the trailer, we see Zoey getting into all kinds of trouble, including possible jail time. The series will also touch on the Black Lives Matter movement as well as life after COVID. All of your favorites will be tested — either their careers, relationships, family, or just dealing with growing up.
