ABC Renews “Black-ish” for Eighth and Final Season

The end is in sight for ABC’s Black-ish. The network has renewed the praised comedy series for an eighth and final season.

Creator executive producer Kenya Barris announced the news Friday morning on social media (see below). He said, “This show has changed my life in so many ways and I am so proud of the conversations we’ve started along the way.”

It has been rumored for a while that the show might be facing its final season, with modest ratings in the current Season 7.

This season, Black-ish has continued to tell stories that shine a light on current events through the lens of the Johnson family, addressing the global pandemic, systemic racism and the movement for social justice and equality.

In the Season 7 finale “Urban Legend,” airing May 18, Dre feels pigeonholed to the urban marketing team at Stevens & Lido and realizes he needs to make some big career changes. Boyz II Men stop by the office to help out the team with a SoFi campaign pitch. Meanwhile, Junior has to deal with the twins who are overstaying their welcome at his and Olivia’s apartment.
