There is another ‘Ish’ in our future. ABC has put in development Old-ish, the third spinoff from Kenya Barris’ flagship series Black-ish, with Laurence Fishburne and Jenifer Lewis reprising their Black-ish roles, Deadline has confirmed.
Written by Barris, Old-ish follows Dre Johnson’s parents, Ruby (Lewis) and Earl (Fishburne), as they give love a second chance. When they move to a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of Los Angeles, 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.
Barris executive produces with Fishburne and Helen Sugland via Cinema Gypsy, along with Artists’ First’s E. Brian Dobbins and Anthony Anderson. Jenifer Lewis will serve as a producer. ABC Signature is the studio.
In addition to Black–ish Old-ish would join spinoffs Freeform’s Grown-ish and ABC’s Mixed-ish.
The Hollywood Reporter was first to report the spinoff.
