Yara Shahidi Opens Up About Filming grown-ish: 'It's Strange & Fantastic'

Yara Shahidi is spilling some of the deets about her upcoming series grown-ish!

The show follows the 17-year-old actress’ black-ish character Zoey as she embarks on her freshman year at the fictional Southern California University.

“It’s strange and fantastic. Within five days of shooting, I had gone to three college parties, had ditched my friend, all sorts of stuff!” Yara told EW.

The show’s premiere is set to pay homage to The Breakfast Club and showcases Zoey’s new friend group in a peculiar late-night marketing class.

“We have such an interesting group of characters that don’t seem to feel like they would ever know each other if it wasn’t for this class. It kind of goes back to the coming-of-age tale of how much of our experience is shared,” Yara explained.

We can’t wait to see this! gown-ish premieres on January 3rd at 8 PM on Freeform.
