Report: Laurence Fishburne & Jenifer Lewis To Star In ‘Black-ish’ Spinoff ‘Old-ish’

ABC’s ‘Black-ish’ is just the gift that keeps on giving.

After spawning not one, but two successful spinoffs in the forms of ‘Mixed-ish’ and ‘Grown-ish’ respectively, now the Kenya Barris-created series is about to launch a third production into TV orbit.

Academy Award nominee Laurence Fishburne and legendary film and TV actress Jenifer Lewis – who portray Earl and Ruby Johnson on the comedy – will be the center of the newest ‘Black-ish’ spinoff, ‘Old-ish.’

The parents of the show’s main character, Dre Johnson (Anthony Anderson), the forthcoming comedy is set to follow the aging divorcees as they give love a second chance.


“Fishburne is currently a recurring character at the main series while Lewis has been a series regular since the second season. Should the new spinoff receive a series order, this would mark the 59-year-old actor’s first major TV project as the central character after playing many supporting roles in shows such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Hannibal.”

Barris will serve as an executive producer and writer of the series alongside Fishburne, Anderson, and Lewis all set as producers.
