ABC announced today that it has topped up the freshman run of Mixed-ish with nine additional episodes to bring its original order of 13 up to a full season's worth of 22 episodes. The comedy is five weeks into its run and has been performing decently as a lead-in to its parent series Black-ish on Tuesday nights.

The spin-off prequel follows Rainbow Johnson looking back at her early years growing up in a mixed-race family in the 1980s, after her parents moved them from a hippie commune to the suburbs to provide a better life for their family. Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they are not seen as black or white - leaving them with the constant dilemma of whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves.
