Premieres Wednesday, January 3 at 8 PM ET/PT on Freeform
          Freeform will debut this new comedy series with a special two-episode event. From the executive producer of ABC’s Emmy®-nominated “black-ish," comes "grown-ish," a half-hour spinoff comedy tackling current social issues and complexities facing both students and administrators. 

         It follows Zoey (Yara Shahidi), the Johnsons’ popular, entitled, stylish and socially active 17-year-old daughter, as she heads into her freshman year of college. The series also stars Francia Raisa, Trevor Jackson, Jordan Buhat, Emily Arlook, Deon Cole, and Chris Parnell. Chloe Bailey, Halle Bailey, and Luka Sabbat recur in the series.


         In the 8 PM premiere episode, “Late Registration,” Zoey Johnson arrives at California University certain she will be a hot shot on campus, but quickly learns she may have a little more growing to do.
          In the 8:30 PM episode, “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” Zoey starts to experience “fear of missing out” for the first time in her life when she tries to juggle her schoolwork, extracurricular activities and, of course, partying.
