Quvenzhané Wallis is moving in on black-ish!
The 2013 Oscar nominee, 15, will appear for a multi-episode arc beginning on the Jan. 22 episode of the ABC comedy as Kyra, Dre’s (Anthony Anderson) cousin — and EW has an exclusive first look at the Beasts of the Southern Wild star in character.
The episode, titled “Waltz in A Minor” (the pun will be evident soon), will feature Wallis’ character being taken in by Dre and his wife, Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross), but the couple “have different approaches to helping her adjust to suburban life,” according to ABC. “Meanwhile, Jack and Diane try to vet Kyra on social media to get information on her.”
Black-ish airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
