A third spinoff of the ABC hit "Black-ish" is in the works.
The Hollywood Reporter said Tuesday in a story later confirmed by other trade magazines that "Black-ish" creator Kenya Barris is developing "Old-ish," a comedy following Earl "Pops" Johnson (Laurence Fishburne) and Ruby Johnson (Jenifer Lewis). The new series will follow the parents of "Black-ish" protagonist Andre "Dre" Johnson (Anthony Anderson), as the divorced couple rekindles their romance in a gentrifying Los Angeles neighborhood.
Barris, whose flagship show has received three Emmy nominations for outstanding comedy series, previously co-created with Larry Wilmore the Freeform spinoff "Grown-ish," and with Tracee Ellis Ross and Peter Saji, ABC's prequel "Mixed-ish."
"Black-ish" is set to return for season 7 next year, "Grown-ish" for season 4 and "Mixed-ish" for season 2.
