It was announced today that Black-ish has been renewed for an eighth and final season. Creator Kenya Barris broke the news with an Instagram post where he expressed his gratitude for being able to end the show on his own terms, and thanked everyone involved along the way.

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 NAACP Image Awards. The show is ABC's second-longest running comedy currently on the air, and recently surpassed the 150-episode milestone. It also has two spin-offs currently on the air, with Freeform's 'Grown-ish' and ABC's 'Mixed-ish' in their fourth and second seasons, respectively.

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 8 of Black-ish as a midseason entry during the 2021-2022 season.
