ABC announced today that Black-ish has been picked up for a sixth season. The early renewal is no surprise, as the veteran comedy has remained a solid performer in the network's Tuesday night lineup.

Known to incorporate storylines related to real-world issues based on current events pertaining to African-Americans, the half-hour series continues to draw critical acclaim - including picking up multiple awards from the NAACP Image Awards. Now at over 100 episodes, the show is ABC's third-longest running comedy on the air.

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.

Today's renewal also included the announcement of another spin-off to add to the family. Mixed-ish will premiere next season, following Rainbow Johnson's early years growing up in a mixed-race family during the 1980s. The first spin-off, Grown-ish, already has two seasons under its belt on Freeform.

Look for Season 6 of Black-ish this fall as part of the 2019-2020 season.
