Grown-ish isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and is that really a surprise? The show is one of the best things to happen in the past year, earning critical praise upon its release and boasting a 91 percent Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.


And now, as Variety reports, the TV hit, a spinoff from the ABC series Black-ish, has officially been renewed for a 20-episode second season on Freeform, an increase from its first-year run of 13 episodes.


The comedy follows Zoey (played by actor, activist and all-around epitome of #BlackGirlMagic, Yara Shahidi) as she maneuvers through college.

As the Hollywood Reporter points out, the pickup for the new season was announced after only four episodes of the show had aired.

Shahidi posted on Instagram with the quintessential #TFW photo, celebrating the big news:

I am happy the show has been renewed for a 2nd season but I would have been absolutely ecstatic if they announced the new season would be 10 hour long episodes.

As much as I like the show, the episodes feel rushed at 30 minutes and expanding to an hour would help a lot with some of the issues I have with it.
