Freeform has released a poster and a teaser trailer to the highly anticipated Black-ish spin-off Grown-ish is set to kick off with two back-to-back episodes on Jan. 3 at 8 p.m. ET, with Alone Together set to air on Jan. 10 at 8:30 p.m. ET.

A contemporary take on the current issues facing both students and administrators in the world of higher education. Yara Shahidi portrays Zoey – Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Rainbow’s (Tracee Ellis Ross) popular, entitled, stylish and socially active 17-year-old daughter — as she heads off to college and quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest.

From “black-ish” executive producer Kenya Barris comes a contemporary take on the current issues facing both students and administrators in the world of higher education. Yara is joined by ”black-ish”’s Deon Cole (Charlie), who moonlights as an adjunct marketing professor, as well as funny new characters both in the administration and student body who all reflect the complex and hilarious points of views that populate college campuses.

Francia Raisa will portray Ana, an outspoken conservative freshman at Southern California University. Jordan Buhat will play Vivek, a first generation Indian-American freshman at Southern California University with an endearing lack of self-awareness. Singing sisters Chloe x Halle portray twin sisters Sky and Jazz, who are on the track team at the college.

Trevor Jackson (American Crime), Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live), and Emily Arlook (The Good Place) were previously announced as series regulars. Parnell and Jackson will both reprise their roles from the backdoor pilot, which aired as a May episode of the Emmy-nominated ABC comedy.

Kenya Barris, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland and Brian Dobbins executive produce.

Freeform has ordered 13 episodes of the half-hour, single-camera comedy which is set to premiere early 2018 on Freeform and the Freeform App available on connected TV, mobile devices and online.
