The third season of Black-ish dives into two huge changes for the Johnson family, and with that comes a lot of love and hilarity.

Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) prepare for the birth of their fifth child, while their first child Zoey (Yara Shahidi) prepares to go off to college. Bow’s brother Johan (Daveed Diggs) returns from Europe and moves in with the family.

With one child leaving the nest and another joining, this season is filled with emotions and memories. The characters openly speak about their fears for the future, and it feels very real despite Dre’s continual spikes of emotions.

Hot off his run in Hamilton, Diggs is a fantastic addition to the cast and is a solid foil for Dre but also shows his differences with Bow.

Final say: An emotional ride. ★★★★☆
