Big News: The 'Girlfriends' Cast To Reunite On 'Black-Ish' — Check Out The First Look!

It may not be a reboot or a revival, but Girlfriends fans should be pleased to know that the cast members will reunite for an episode of black-ish.  Golden Brooks, Persia White, and Jill Marie Jones will join the ABC comedy that stars Tracee Ellis Ross for a stint this fall.

Ross posted about the news on Instagram, saying, "my giiiiirlfriends are guest starring on an episode of #blackish this season! we haven’t all been together on camera since 2006. these are women i grew up with and love deeply and it was easy [to] tap back into the magic of our chemistry and how much we love each other. it was giggles on top of giggles on top of giggles. girlfriends ran for 8 years and was important to so many people. being able to merge the worlds of @blackishabc and girlfriends was surreal for me and so much fun."
