The Black-ish spin-off with Yara Shahidi in Italy is available in streaming on Disney +.
Movements in the cast of Grown-ish in view of the fifth season. Deadline informs us that Daniella Perkins, who portrayed Kiela as a ten-episode recurring in Season 4, will return full-time in the new episodes, as her role has been made a regular. Also well six new actors joined the cast as applicants and will support the protagonist Yara Shahidi: I am Matthew Sato (Doctor Doogie), Tara Raani, Justine Skye (Already Gone), Amelie Zilber, Ceyair Wright (Space Jam: A New Legacy) And Slick Woods. They will hit the void left by the 6 original Grown-ish cast members who, as we know from previous news, have said goodbye to the series after season 4. Meanwhile, Freeform – where the series will return on July 20 – has released the official trailer of new episodes. Check it out below.
Grown-ish: The previews of the fifth season
Season 5 will see the return of Yara Shahidi (Zoey), Trevor Jackson (Aaron), Diggy Simmons (Doug) and the arrival, from Black-ishby Andre Johnson Junior known to all simply as Junior, Zoey’s younger brother (played by Marcus Scribner). In the Season 4 finale, Zoey and Aaron moved to New York, so it’s unclear what or who will bring them back to the West Coast in Season 5 (if they really intend to return to Los Angeles).
The new characters
Deadline it also gives brief descriptions of the new characters. Raani plays Zaara, a first generation Muslim-American. She is a sophomore, very bold, queer and open when it comes to her sexuality; Skye plays Annika, a fun, confident and extremely ambitious freshman who chose the Cal U as a matter of personal branding; Zilber interprets Lauryn, a freshman who is a bit shy and clumsy and sometimes a bit naive, so she often tries to mask her insecurities, but she is also a devoted Christian, albeit a very open one. Wright plays Zeke, a super-confident American football player at ease in his own skin, yet extremely intriguing; Sato interprets Brandon, a sophomore at Cal U who is charming as hell, intelligent and a true superhero who is comfortable in any situation and has his eyes set on a political future with the aim of creating change; Woods finally plays Slicka freshman who always says things as they are and is a style icon without filters.
The fifth season of Grown-ish in the United States will arrive on Freeform on July 20. In Italy, however, we will see it soon on Disney + where previous seasons are already available.
