‘Grown-ish’ Says Goodbye To 6 Original Cast Members: Chloe & Hailey Bailey + Luka Sabbot Exit Show
It looks like there is going to be a major shakeup with the cast of ‘Grown-ish’!
In the wake of Thursday’s (Mar.24) graduation-themed season 4 finale, it’s been reported that some of the beloved series regulars will not be returning to the sitcom. Sadly, the season 4 finale episode marked the departures of Francia Raisa (Ana), Emily Arlook (Nomi), Chloe Bailey (Jazz), Luka Sabbat (Luca), Halle Bailey (Sky), and Jordan Buhat (Vivek).
As for what that future of the series might look like, the showrunners confirmed Yara Shahidi, Diggy Simmons and Trevor Jackson will be returning for season five! Showrunners Zakiyyah Alexander and Courtney Lilly had this to say about the cast shake up:
“Francia, Emily, Chloe, Halle, Luka and Jordan will always be a part of the -ish’ family. This new season isn’t a goodbye, we are just expanding the world; there will always be an open door for them to return.”
Their statement continued,
“We’re excited to dive deeper into the storylines of Zoey, Aaron and Doug in their post-grad adventures and welcome a new dynamic class to Cal-U, including Junior.”
Earlier this month, Freeform confirmed that will be making the switch from Black-ish to Grown-ish in season five as the original series is currently finishing out its eighth and final season on ABC.
