Grown-ish will be the name of the Black-ish spinoff that follows Zoey, Yara Shahidi’s character, to the University of Southern California for college.

Chris Parnell, Trevor Jackson and Emily Arlook will join Shahidi and Deon Cole in the Grown-ish cast, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Creator Kenya Barris wrote in a statement, “Grown-ish reflects what we’ll be dealing with in the show—that in-between place where you’re not quite an adult but facing grown world problems for the first time.

“Where Black-ish examines what it means to be black, Grown-ish is an examination of what it is and what it means to be grown,” Barris added.

Grown-ish will premiere on the Freeform channel in 2018; Black-ish returns to ABC for its fourth season Oct. 3.
