'Grown-ish' Season 4 To Premiere This Summer - Watch the First Teaser!

'Grown-ish' Season 4 To Premiere This Summer - Watch the First Teaser!

WARNING! This post contains “grown-ish” season three spoilers!!

The third season of grown-ish only just wrapped up this week, and we’re already getting a taste of the next season!

The Freeform series was renewed for a fourth season way back in January 2020, and it will be back this summer for senior year with Yara Shahidi, Trevor Jackson, Chloe Bailey, Francia Raisa, Diggy Simmons, Emily Arlook and Jordan Buhat.

In the season three finale, Zoey and Aaron finally got together, and from the new teaser, we see them go on summer vacation as a couple, along with their friend group.

Also in the teaser, it appears as though Vivek being pulled over didn’t send him to jail. The season three finale left us off on a major cliffhanger of him being pulled over and his girlfriend finding his drug stash and quickly hiding it as the officer walked up to his window.

Notably missing from the clip is Halle Bailey, who’s character went off to compete in the Olympics. Her absence from the show is of course due to her filming the upcoming live action The Little Mermaid!

Yara Shahidi, Ever Anderson & More Begin Production On 'Peter Pan & Wendy'

Yara Shahidi, Ever Anderson & More Begin Production On 'Peter Pan & Wendy'

Production has begun on the upcoming live action Peter Pan & Wendy film!

Disney+ announced that Yara Shahidi (Tinkerbell), Ever Anderson (Wendy), Alexander Molony (Peter Pan), Jude Law (Captain Hook) and Jim Gaffigan (Smee) have begun principal photography in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The upcoming movie is based on J.M. Barrie‘s novel “Peter And Wendy” and inspired by the original 1953 animated Disney movie.

Peter Pan & Wendy is the timeless tale of a young girl who, defying her parents’ wishes to attend boarding school, travels with her two younger brothers to the magical Neverland. There, she meets a boy who refuses to grow up, a tiny fairy and an evil pirate captain, and they soon find themselves on a thrilling and dangerous adventure far, far away from their family and the comforts of home.

“Peter Pan has long been one of my favorite stories, partially because I’ve always resisted growing up, but also because of the heart, adventure and imagination that makes J.M. Barrie’s original tale so evergreen,” director David Lowery said. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to redefine his iconic characters for a new generation – and even more excited that I get to do so with such an exceptional cast and crew.”

Peter Pan & Wendy will premiere on Disney+ in 2022 and also stars Molly Parker as Mrs. Darling, Alan Tudyk as Mr. Darling, newcomers Joshua Pickering as John, Jacobi Jupe as Michael and Alyssa Wapanatâhk as Tiger Lily.

Yara Shahidi Developing New Freeform Comedy 'Smoakland' With Mom Keri

Yara Shahidi and her mom Keri are working on bringing a new comedy series to the small screen!

It was just announced that the mother-daughter duo are developing Smoakland for Freeform through their 7th Sun Productions company, in partnership with ABC Signature.

“In case you wondering what we’ve been up to 👀 … Proud #TEAM7THSUNMOMENT,” Yara wrote on Instagram in all caps.

The new series was written by Jewel Coronel, and “centers around Oakland native Solo, the visionary of a budding cannabis company, who navigates family expectations, changing friendships, love, and her drive to break through the “grass” ceiling of the oft-closed terrain of the cannabis industry for herself and her community,” according to Deadline.

Jewel will also executive produce, alongside Zahir McGhee and the Shahidis.

Back in July 2020, it was announced that Yara and Keri had signed an overall deal with ABC Studios to form 7th Sun. They will “develop and produce scripted and alternative television projects for cable, streaming and broadcast.”
