Plot Synopsis

In this spin-off of BLACK-ISH, Zoey Johnson -- Dre and Rainbow's popular, entitled, stylish and socially active 17-year-old daughter -- heads off to college and quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest. The series opens with Zoey arriving at California University, where she is certain she will be a hot shot on campus, but quickly learns she may have a little more growing to do -- especially when she starts to experience FOMO for the first time in her life as she tries to juggle schoolwork, extracurricular activities and, of course, partying. As Zoey navigates life as a college freshman, this half-hour comedy series tackles current social issues and complexities facing both students and administrators.
The 20-episode second season of GROWN-ISH premiered on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 from 8-9pm ET/PT on Freeform. After the wide-eyed firsts of their freshman year, Season 2 follows Zoey and her friends as they enter their second year at CalU with confidence and swagger. Learning from the ups and downs of their first year, they all assume they've got their second year on lock, but quickly realize that they're not as grown as they think. Reprising their roles are Yara Shahidi as popular but entitled Zoey Johnson, Trevor Jackson as socially conscious Aaron Jackson, Francia Raisa as outspoken conservative Latina Ana Torres, Emily Arlook as openly and actively bisexual Nomi Segal, Jordan Buhat as troublemaker Vivek Shah, Chloe Bailey and Halle Bailey as twins and sporty-savants Jazz Forster and Sky Forster, Luka Sabbat as mellow and fashion-forward Luca Hall, and Deon Cole as eccentric and unpredictable Professor Charles Telphy. Season 2 debuted with back-to-back new episodes:

"Better" (8pm): Zoey and the gang return for their sophomore year and Zoey is determined to make the "sequel" better than the original. She, Ana and Nomi move into a less-than-stellar off-campus apartment and have to quickly adjust to each other as roommates. Zoey is excited to see Luca again after a summer of keeping in touch via social media.

"Nothing Was the Same" (8:30pm): Zoey feels insecure when she realizes that her friends don't see her relationship with Luca as #RelationshipGoals, prompting her to try a little too hard to prove that what they have is special. In his first move as an RA, Aaron organizes a movie night to build community ... but his film choice does nothing to help people unwind.
