“Grown-ish” taps Beyoncé protegees Chloe x Halle for Season One cast

ABC/Fred WatkinsGrown-ish, Freeform’s upcoming black-ish spinoff show starring Yara Shahidi, has announced that a few familiar faces will be joining the cast.

In addition to Shahidi, the new series will feature Francia Raisa and Jordan Buhat in series regular roles, and Beyoncé protégés Chloe x Halle will have recurring roles.

Raisa, who played Adrian Lee on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, will play Ana, “an outspoken conservative freshman at Southern California University.”  Buhat will play Vivek, a first generation Indian-American freshman at Southern California University with an endearing lack of self-awareness.

Chloe and Halle Bailey, who are sisters in real life, will play twins Sky and Jazz, who are college track stars. 

As previously reported, grown-ish follows the character of Zoey as she heads to college and experiences the challenges of adulthood.

The 13-episode comedy will start production next week and is set to arrive in early 2018 on Freeform and the Freeform App.
