    The ish franchise may be adding another installment.

    ABC is developing Old-ish, another spinoff from Kenya Barris’ Emmy-nominated flagship series Black-ish. The comedy would see Laurence Fishburne and Jenifer Lewis reprise their roles as Earl “Pops” Johnson and Ruby Johnson, the parents of Anthony Anderson’s Dre.

    Fishburne — who has been an exec producer on Black-ish since its start — has been a recurring player on the series and appeared in more than 60 of the comedy’s 141 episodes thus far, while Lewis was promoted from recurring to series regular in season two.

    Barris, who departed ABC for a lucrative overall deal with Netflix in August 2018, will pen the script and exec produce alongside Fishburne, Anderson and Artists First’s E. Brian Dobbins. Lewis will be credited as a producer. The single-camera comedy hails from ABC Signature, Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy and Barris’ Khalabo Ink Society.

    The spinoff 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.

    This show will probably get cancelled after the first season.

    I will check this out because I am a huge fan of Jenifer Lewis.

    Isn’t this a punchline from BlackAF where a bunch of other showrunners shit on Barris’ for being a one trick pony.

    I’ll still watch for though.

    I was wondering what the spin-off  would look like after Kenya mention there was one in the works. This will be cute bc those characters/actors make a meal out crumbs they get on the main show. This and grown-ish make sense as spin-off shows. That mixed-ish does in theory, but my irrational hate of them doing a reverse Aunt Viv makes me not want to watch.

    I want to see Fishburne doing something more challenging.  He was outstanding in #FreeRayshawn.  I had forgotten that he had it in him.
