The veteran comedy will continue in 2019-2020.
May 2, 2019
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.

Yay! That's fantastic news! This show is considerably better than those animated sitcoms they have on Fox.

I’m surprised nobody is mentioning the Trump episode where Lucy is revealed to have voted for Trump but is still portrayed sympathetically. Series is more nuanced than a lot of people give it credit for.

Decent Show, a little left leaning but it is what it is. It didn't change into this. I like it, and actually learn stuff.
But Wow the snowflakes already started to have a meltdown because a show go renewed. You can't find one Oba ma thing in the latest football related episode, unless you make everything Left wing / right wing. In which case I just feel sorry for you.

@Tim - or at Kapernick. Can't wait to see how they incorporate Jussie in the mix.

It's okay for the occasional watch.. I do get tired of the "follow the Goldbergs set up" shows - Blackish, Schooled, American Housewife, Kinds Are Alright, et al -- where there's narration to explain the content. To me, narration in a video, movie or tv, is always a shortcut because they can't write scenes which adequately tell a story. Sometimes that's due to time constraints, others it's due to lazy writing. Lately.. it all just seems lazy after season 1 or 2.

Hell yes! Love this show! Glad it’ll be sticking around though I do wonder how the Junior situation with college will be resolved.

It’s clearly watchable for enough Americans to get renewed for a season 6!

That's a shame. This show is nothing but a 30 minute love fest to Obama. UNWATCHABLE.
