The single-camera sitcom “Mixed-ish” will be coming back to ABC with season 2
“Mixed-ish” is a prequel spin-off of “Black-ish” and will be back with an exciting season 2. Despite attracting only 2.7 million viewers, the series which is one of the three TV shows of the Ish franchise, was announced to be renewed for a second season. Just like its two other siblings Black-ish and Grown-ish, the script is strong and intelligently infuses the black culture.
The show follows the earlier life of Rainbow Johnson (the main lead of Black-ish) as she shares with the audience her experience of growing up in a mixed family. The show stars Arica Himmel, Tika Sumpter, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Gary Cole, and Mykal-Michelle Harris.

About this show:
Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s and the constant dilemmas she and the family members had to face over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves. Bow's parents, Paul and Alicia, decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they're perceived as neither black nor white. The family's experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one's own identity when the rest of the world can't decide where you belong.
