Over-ish! The cast of grown-ish is all grown up.

Series star Yara Shahidi, who plays Zoey Johnson, announced the hit series will conclude its run on Freeform after six seasons.

The sixth and final season’s first part will premiere this summer, with the second following sometime in 2024 and will feature fun cameos from Lil Yachty and Anderson.Paak.

“You guys have been with us since season one, and it has been such an honor to play Zoey and grow up alongside her for the past nine years,” she said. “Your support over the last five seasons has really meant the world to us, the cast and crew. We want to take the time to thank you all for the love and support that’s kept us going.”

“And like I said, there’s still another season to go. Trust me, it’s gonna be big,” Yara concluded.

The show, which was originally a spin-off of the ABC drama black-ish, featured Yara as Zoey, with her on-screen brother Marcus Scribner ultimately taking over for the Junior seasons. Among the other cast members were Francia Raisa, Chloe and Halle Bailey, Diggy Simmons, Jordan Buhat, Luka Sabbat, and Emily Arlook.

Kenya Barris, the show’s creator, also posted a touching statement about the show’s success since its 2018 premiere.

“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,” he said in a statement. “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.”
