Freeform’s Black-ish spin-off is growing — in multiple ways.

Previously titled College-ish, the upcoming offshoot of the hit ABC comedy has been renamed Grown-ish. The series will follow Yara Shahidi’s Zoey as she moves away from the Johnson household and heads off to college at Southern California University.

Grown-ish reflects what we’ll be dealing with in the show — that in-between place where you’re not quite an adult but facing grown world problems for the first time,” creator Kenya Barris said in a statement. “Where Black-ish examines what it means to be black, Grown-ish is an examination of what it is and what it means to be grown.”

In addition to the new title, Grown-ish has officially added three cast members to join Shahidi and Deon Cole, who will reprise his scene-stealing Black-ish role of Charlie. After appearing in May’s backdoor pilot episode “Liberal Arts,” Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live) and Trevor Jackson (American Crime) return as the school’s dean and a socially conscious student, respectively. Emily Arlook (The Good Place) also joins the comedy as fellow freshman Miriam, taking over the role originally played by Mallory Sparks.

Grown-ish‘s 13-episode first season is set to premiere on Freeform in early 2018, while Black-ish returns to ABC for season 4 on Oct. 3.
