ABC has opted to bring BLACK-ISH back this fall, a day after the original schedule put it on deck for a midseason launch.

“BLACK-ISH has a long-standing history of shining a light on current events and honoring Black voices through the lens of the Johnson family,” said Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment in a statement. “After speaking with Kenya and our creative partners, we decided it was important to tell these meaningful stories during this moment in time, so we are adjusting our premiere schedule and are committed to doing whatever it takes to bring this series back as soon as we possibly can. Following recent monumental events, it’s imperative that the dialogue continues and empowers viewers to raise their voices, and there is no other show that does that like BLACK-ISH.”

“We are incredibly grateful to Karey, Dana and Peter for recognizing the importance of BLACK-ISH in this moment and applaud them for making the necessary shifts to bring the show back as soon as possible,” said Kenya Barris. “While the last few months have felt overwhelming at times, they have also underscored just how important it is that Black voices are not only heard but empowered and amplified as well; and our entire BLACK-ISH team is humbled to be a small part of telling our stories and are excited to get back to these conversations.”

The series will now air Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c, with AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE moving to 9:30/8:30c, while planned rookie comedy CALL YOUR MOTHER will debut later in the season.
