TV: Black-ish – Season 2

Premiered: September 23, 2015

On: ABC

Starring: Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Yara Shahidi, Marcus Scribner, Miles Brown, Marsai Martin, Jeff Meacham, Jenifer Lewis, Laurence Fishburne, Peter Mackenzie, Deon Cole, Allen Maldonado, Nicole Sullivan, Catherine Reitman, Regina Hall & Wanda Sykes

Following the lead of a fantastic first season, Black-ish is back with its smart and funny ways to speak about race in modern America.

Life at work is thrown off-balance for Dre (Anthony Anderson) when it’s announced that Daphne Lido (Wanda Sykes) won her husband’s share of Stevens & Lido in their divorce and stars making changes. Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) and Dre’s mom, Ruby (Jenifer Lewis), clash when Ruby moves in.

Promoting the hilarious Lewis to the main cast was a fantastic decision. She was fantastic in her guest starring role in season one and continues to be a scene stealer now.

The 16th episode, “Hope,” is centralized on a recent shooting of a black man by the police and its power holds over five years after its premiere.

Final say: Glad to be back to black. ★★★★★
