The weekly sitcom Black-ish will be back for a sixth season this fall 2019.
The popular series, which involves Andre “Dre” Johnson and his family living in a white neighborhood, was renewed back in May. In addition, there’s another spin-off coming for the show.
Here are more details about the Black-ish Season 6 release date for when to expect the show back on TV this fall.
Black-ish Season 6 cast, spin-off update
The Black-ish main cast is headed up by actor and comedian Anthony Anderson as Dre, along with his wife Rainbow (Bow), played by Golden Globe winner Tracee Ellis Ross.
There’s also Miles Brown as Jack Johnson, Marsai Martin as Diane Johnson, and Marcus Scribner as Andre “Junior” Johnson Jr. as part of the family.
Other principal cast members include Peter Mackenzie who plays Leslie Stephens and Deon Cole as Charlie Telphy. There are also notable recurring cast members such as Laurence Fishburne as Earl “Pops” Johnson and Wanda Sykes as Daphne Lido.
For the past several seasons, Yara Shahidi was a recurring star rather than one of the main cast members. That’s because she is now the star of the spin-off series Grown-ish which arrived just last year on Freeform.
Speaking of spin-offs, a USA Today report back in May indicated that another one is on the way. It’s called Mixed-ish and focuses on a younger version of Rainbow aka “Bow.”
It officially arrives in late September, along with Black-ish. A new trailer appeared online in early August ahead of the show’s official debut.
Arica Himmel portrays the young Rainbow “Bow” Jackson on Mixed-ish. The new show also stars former Saved by the Bell star Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Paul Jackson as well as Tika Sumpter as Alicia Jackson. Tracee Ellis Ross will narrate as the older version of Bow she currently plays on Black-ish.
