Is a Black-ish Spinoff Headed to Freeform?

Deadline is reporting a spinoff of the ABC series Black-ish is in talks for a series order at Freeform. The pilot episode was written by Kenya Barris and former Black-ish showrunner Larry Wilmore, although Wilmore is no longer attached to the series. The show would focus on Yara Shahidi’s character Zoey Johnson as she goes off to college. The pilot, co-starring Chris Parnell, Matt Walsh and Trevor Jackson, was received well at ABC but was considered “too young” for the network.

Black-ish, now in its third season, is fully expected to be renewed for a fourth season. As for the fate of the spinoff? Stay tuned…
