At a time when we’re seeing multiple TV shows revived and rebooted, ABC’s comedy Black-ish is daring to do something even more retro: a spin-off! Just like Lisa Bonet left The Cosby Show for A Different World when her character reached college age, Yara Shahidi — who plays Zoey Johnson on Black-ish — has gotten her own show about leaving the nest. Shahidi talked to us about Grown-ish, and she says that while you got to know Zoey pretty well on Black-ish you’ll see a completely different side of her as she adjusts to life away from her family on the new show.

Grown-ish airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on ABC’s cable sister, Freeform.
