Kenya Barris, the creator of the Black-ish franchise, which also includes two spinoff series, Grown-ish, and Mixed-ish, announced in May that this upcoming season would be the series’ last.
“# BLACK-ISH ANNOUNCEMENT!!! -To ALL the people in the world I love, honor, respect and care for it is both exciting and bittersweet to share that black-ish has been RENEWED by ABC for it’s EIGHTH… and FINAL SEASON.”
There are no details outside of Obama playing herself or how many episodes she will appear in, but the Twitterverse definitely spoke up about the revealing news!
Am gonna miss @JeniferLewis @marsaimartin , @MilesBrown and @deoncole terribly!!! These four awesome human beings to me are the epic center of the show especially Ruby. The whole team is awesome too and purely talented. God bless you all . #blackexcellence ✊#blackish ✊

I cannot wait to see the direction and flow of her character on the show. It has demonstrated excellence in writing, casting, relevant topics, important history lessons not talked about enough. Engagement at the individual, cultural, and teaching history to us all. #michelleobama
