ABC officials have confirmed a third Black-ish spin-off – Old-ish – is in the works.
Bosses at the television network are working with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris on the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Old-ish is set to follow Black-ish stars Laurence Fishburne and Jenifer Lewis as they reprise their roles as Earl “Pops” Johnson and Ruby Johnson.
Jenifer, 63, and Laurence, 59, play the parents of Anthony Anderson‘s character Dre on Black-ish. Tracee Ellis Ross plays Dre’s wife, Rainbow.
Lewis will serve as executive producer of the show.
According to a script teaser, Old-ish “will follow Ruby and Earl as they give love a second chance. When they move to a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of L.A., they’ll meet characters who represent the old and new faces of the community as they try to make it work as a married couple. Again.”
Laurence has been a recurring character on the show from the beginning, while Jenifer was promoted from a recurring role to series regular in season 2.
Old-ish will be the fourth installment in the franchise – Black-ish premiered in 2014 on ABC, Grown-ish premiered in 2018 on Freeform, and Mixed-ish premiered in 2019 on ABC.
