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.
ABC announced today that Black-ish will be returning for a fifth season. The pickup is no surprise, as the veteran comedy remains a solid part of the network's Tuesday night lineup.
Known for storylines related to real-world issues based on current events pertaining to African-Americans, the half-hour series continues to draw critical acclaim - including multiple award wins from the NAACP Image Awards.
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.
Look for Season 5 of Black-ish this fall.
