Disney has announced that the ABC comedy series “Mixed-Ish” will be coming soon to Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
In “Mixed-Ish”, Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the ’80s, and the dilemmas they face to acclimate in the suburbs while staying true to themselves. Bow’s parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they’re perceived as neither black nor white. This family’s experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one’s own identity when the rest of the world can’t decide where you belong.
New episodes from the first season will be released every Wednesday from the 18th of August.
There are 23 episodes in the first season and 13 episodes in the second season. Unfortunately, the show was not renewed after the second season.
ABC’s “mixed-ish “stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Paul Johnson, Tika Sumpter as Alicia Johnson, Christina Anthony as Denise, Arica Himmel as Bow Johnson, Ethan William Childress as Johan Johnson, Mykal-Michelle Harris as Santamonica Johnson and Gary Cole as Harrison Johnson. Karin Gist, Peter Saji and Kenya Barris are writers and executive producers along with Tracee Ellis Ross, Randall Winston, Artists First (Brian Dobbins), Cinema Gypsy (Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland) and Anthony Anderson.
The series is already a Star Original on Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand, with new episodes from the second season currently being released weekly.
