'Grown-Ish' Pays Homage To 'A Different World' In New Promo Inspired By The Opening Theme Of Classic Series

If a new promo is anything to go by, Grown-ish season 2 will be A Different World! 

A new video ahead of the new season of the Yara Shahidi-led Black-ish spinoff, which debuts in January, has a new promotional video inspired by the opening credits of the classic sitcom A Different World. 

The promo includes a ’90s-R&B inspired version of the show’s theme song, sung by Chloe x Halle.

The new season premieres January 2 on Freeform.

The official description for the sophomore year: After the wide-eyed firsts of their freshman year, season two of Grown-ish follows Zoey and her friends as they enter their second year at CalU with confidence and swagger. Learning from the ups and downs of their first year, they all think they’ve got their second year on lock, but quickly realize they’re not as grown as they think.

Shahidi leads the cast as popular but entitled Zoey Johnson, joined by Trevor Jackson as socially conscious Aaron Jackson, Francia Raisa as outspoken conservative Latina Ana Torres, Emily Arlook as openly and actively bisexual Nomi Segal, Jordan Buhat as troublemaker Vivek Shah, Chloe Bailey and Halle Bailey as twins and sporty-savants Jazz Forster and Sky Forster, Luka Sabbat as mellow and fashion-forward Luca Hall and Deon Cole as eccentric and unpredictable Professor Charles Telphy.

The show is produced by ABC Signature Studios and executive produced by Kenya Barris, Julie Bean, Jenifer Rice-Genzuk Henry, Craig Doyle, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland and E. Brian Dobbins.
