Black-ish centers on an upper-middle-class black man who struggles to raise his children with some sense of cultural identity despite constant contradictions and obstacles coming from his liberal wife, old-school father, and his own assimilated, color-blind kids.
Dre realizes he's out of touch with his roots after Junior claims he's turned into a "valley dad," so he takes the family to his hometown of Compton; Bow tries to teach Jack and Diane about the spirit of giving by having them volunteer in Compton.
ABC announced today that six additional episodes have been ordered for the seventh season of Black-ish, which premiered this past Wednesday. The top-up is no surprise, as the long-running comedy has yet to air a season less than 23 episodes in length.
The extra episodes ordered today bring the show's Season 7 total to 21 episodes, but there is a potential that a few more could still be added as the season progresses.
Black-ish follows patriarch Andre 'Dre' Johnson, who has a beautiful wife, a job he loves, and four kids. They all live in a nice colonial home in the suburbs, but Dre wonders if success has brought too much assimilation to his African-American family.
