ORIGINALLY airing in 2014, Black-ish was a major hit for ABC, earning the network a Peabody Award, Emmy awards, and high ratings.
The eighth and final season of the Anthony Anderson-led series will be released soon. Here’s all we know about it.
When will Black-ish season 8 be released?
The last season of Black-ish will premiere on Tuesday, January 4, 2022, at 9.30pm, according to Deadline.
The program will premiere in the midseason, rather than in the fall as it has in prior seasons.
Season 7 was planned to have a midseason airdate, but it was moved to the ABC autumn schedule instead, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
This might be because of the previous season’s significant reduction in viewership, with the show losing 33% of the key Adults 18-49 demographic compared to the previous season, according to Looper.
