Freeform’s 2018 line-up is looking pretty sweet. We know your faves are coming back, but there are 5 new shows you definitely don’t wanna miss.
Fans of ABC’s Black-ish are already familiar with Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi). She’s the oldest daughter of Andre and Rainbow Johnson. Zoey, seventeen, graduates high school this season. Last season, we received a glimpse of what college life would be like for Zoey. ‘Liberal Arts’, the episode title of the backdoor pilot, showed Zoey’s attempt at handling her problems in a college setting. Freeform’s Grown-ish picks up where the pilot left off by following Zoey during her first year of college.
Grown-ish premieres on January 3 at 8 PM ET with two episodes.
2. Alone Together
If you’re tired of forced romances and love a good show with a girl and guy platonic relationship, Alone Together is for you. Comedians Esther Povitsky and Benji Aflalo both executive produce and star in this new comedy. The two play struggling millennials just trying to make it in L.A. Ester and Benji get into some antics and sticky situations throughout the show. At the end of the day, their honesty with each other and sense of humor makes for serious friendship goals.
