How to Watch Grown-ish Online Without Cable


Black-ish has been one of the most popular television shows on cable for the last few years. This irreverent comedy, starring Anthony Anderson, is one of the big reasons that a lot of people have kept their cable subscriptions as they don’t want to miss a second of this hilarious program.

Now fans of the show have even more to get excited about as the show has now produced its first spin-off, Grown-ish. This spin-off follows the eldest daughter of Black-ish’s Johnson family as she heads out into the world, and is a show that is sure to provide just as many laughs as its sister program.


While you can watch this show on cable VIA the Freeform network, there is a good chance that you much rather enjoy Grown-ish on the go or on-demand. If so, the following are all the ways that we know of in which you can watch Grown-ish online, on the go, and on your time!

What is Grown-ish?

Grown-ish follows Zoey Johnson, the eldest child from Black-ish, as she goes out on her own and starts college. As would be expected of any young person heading out into the world for the first time, things are not always as easy as it seems to be and things often turn sour for the young Zoey as she tries to adjust to life on her own.


Grown-ish stars Yara Shahidi, who is reprising her role as Zoey Johnson for the show. Rounding out the cast are individuals such as Chris Parnell, Deon Cole, and Trevor Jackson, among others. You can be sure that favorites from Black-ish may also turn up from time to time, including Anthony Anderson.

Grown-ish airs on the Freeform network at 8 PM EST on Wednesdays.
