Grown-ish Season 6: What to expect in the new season?

Attention viewers! Despite the series being currently in its fifth season, with the midseason premiere set for Wednesday, January 18, 2023, the network has already announced that Grown-ish will be returning for Season 6 at Freeform, which calls for an early celebration! On the other hand,  the exact launch date has yet to be determined, as the series was recently renewed by the network. However, it has been speculated that it will most likely be released in the early to mid months of 2024, as production for the season is speculated to begin later this year. Of course, this is just speculation, and the network will confirm the dates in the near future. It is expected to follow a similar time slot, with new episodes dropping on a weekly basis on Wednesdays at 10:30/9:30c on Freeform, and available to stream the next day on Hulu. 

The main cast members who are expected to reprise their roles in the new season are Trevor Jackson, Diggy Simmons, and Daniella Perkins. Shahidi executive produces alongside Kenya Barris, Zakiyyah Alexander, Courtney Lilly, Craig Doyle, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland, E. Brian Dobbins, and Michael Petok. We suggest that the viewers be patient and follow all the social media platforms for the series to be updated with the latest information for the sixth season. Doyle has been tapped as a showrunner for the upcoming season, succeeding Alexander and Lilly who were co-showrunners last season. The series hails from ABC Signature. Barris co-created the series with Larry Wilmore.
