Good news ‘Black-Ish’ fans, the Johnson family will be back with a season 5 on ABC. The news comes while several major TV announcements were made this week. According to insiders, ‘Black-Ish’s’ renewal comes as no surprise.
ABC has renewed its popular family comedy Black-ish for a fifth season. The pickup was never in question — Black-ish is one of ABC’s strongest and most acclaimed comedies, and it comes from sister studio ABC Studios. The only question about its future was the extent of creator Kenya Barris’ involvement as he has been in discussions about exiting his overall deal at the studio. Created, executive produced and directed by Barris, Black-ish tells the story of the Johnsons—an affluent African-American family struggling to raise their kids in the largely white culture of well-to-do suburbia.
