There’s a reason Yara Shahidi was just named one of Time Magazine’s 30 most influential teens. The actress is an outspoken advocate on issues of race and gender, and her fans love her for it. Yara even finds a way to inject a little bit of activism into her on-screen work, and that’s part of what has fans so excited for her new show “Grown-ish.”

Yara Shahidi is headed off to start her freshman year at Harvard this fall. To mirror her real-world journey, her character Zoey on the ABC sitcom “Black-ish” is getting her own spin-off as she heads to school, too.
Yara announced the new name via Instagram, where she just passed a million followers. The new show is officially called “Grown-ish,” a clever nod to the original series. It’s also a much better title than what was being kicked around on the show’s official Instagram before the new announcement.
