Freeform's Grownish relates all too well

February 20, 2018

Have you ever made the ridiculous decision to sign up for an hour break between classes and you have no idea how to spend that specific amount of time? 

Well the Black-ish creator, Kenya Barris, comes to us with a new comedy that will not only entertain you but will get you hooked. 



Chloe Bailey, Trevor Jackson, Halle Bailey and Yara Shahidi appear in Grown-ish, Wednesdays on Freeform.

The show focuses on Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi) and her experiences as a college freshman at Cal U, the friends and enemies along the way, the classes she takes and how college life affects her.

 All of this is through the main character’s narrative.

Thus far, the show has introduced a hand full of characters that in a way are your typical college stereotypes but they each have their own story lines and plenty of room to grow for seasons to come.

Just like in grown-ish Zoey is the sweet, sassy girl that sometimes takes simple things out of control. 

Then, you have your main character’s love interest Aaron Jackson (Trevor Jackson) that you would think has a football scholarship, but you’re wrong.

 First of all, Aaron is the only sophomore of the Zoey’s group of friends, he also refers to himself as “revolutionary” making his character seem like the ever-so-famous “woke” student. Not only that, Zoey has another love interest Luca Hall (Luka Sabbat) a stoner that happens to be a fashion major. 

Then we have twins, Skylar and Jazlyn Forster (Halle and Chloe Bailey) Cal U’s track and field stars. The Forster sisters come from the hood but pretend to be sweet, race-winning angels when coaches are watching.

Finally, we have three of the most interesting characters on the show Nomi Segal, a Jewish American, who’s bisexual but hasn’t come out to her family yet.

She also works at the school. Vivek Shah (Jorban Buhat) is a first generation Gujarati Indian, whose parents are Hindu. Oh! And he sells drugs too.

In the end we have Analisa “Ana” Patricia Torres (Francia Raisa) who is from Cuban descent. She’s also Catholic and a Republican in love with former president, Barack Obama.
