Highlighting the ending of the show, the series creator and executive producer Kenya Barris stated, “We’ve spent nearly a decade telling our stories through the -ish series and to say it has been an amazing journey would be an understatement.”

“To be able to watch Yara, Marcus, and our entire ‘grown-ish’ family grow up in front of (and in many ways alongside) us over these past several years has been both a joy and an honor. From the stories we’ve told to the talent we’ve fostered and, most importantly, the memories made, I could not be more proud of everything we’ve accomplished and the -ish family I’ve been a part of.”

The main cast members who are expected to reprise their roles are Trevor Jackson, Diggy Simmons, and Daniella Perkins. The series is produced by ABC Signature and Kenya Barris, Craig Doyle, Yara Shahidi, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland, E.
