gscam will end its run with the show’s upcoming sixth season, Freeform and series star Yara Shahidi announced on Wednesday.

Shahidi, who plays Zoey Johnson in the comedy series, broke the news to fans in a video announcement on Freeform’s YouTube page.

“I wanted to share the news with you guys, our days this season six of Cultivated will be our last season,” she said. “But don’t be sad, because we’re going to do it big.”

She added, “Your support over the past five seasons has truly meant the world to us, the cast and crew, and we want to take the time to thank you all for the love and support that has made it possible for us to continue.”

THE Blackish spin-off premiered in 2018 and followed Zoey as she headed off to college. Shahidi’s Elder Blackish co-star, Marcus Scribner, joined the spinoff in Season 5. The cast also includes Trevor Jackson, Diggy Simmons, and Daniella Perkins.

In the final season, musical artists Lil Yachty, Anderson .Paak, and The Free Nationals will all have guest roles. The Cal U team will also be celebrating the show’s 100th episode.

In a statement on Wednesday, the series’ creator and executive producer, Kenya Barris, called it a “joy and honour” to work on the show.

“We’ve spent nearly a decade telling our stories through the -ish series, and to say it’s been an incredible journey would be an understatement,” Barris said. “To be able to watch Yara, Marcus and all of our Cultivated growing up in front of (and in many ways alongside) us over the past few years has been both a joy and an honor.

Season 6 of the series was announced earlier this year, but according to Hollywood journalist, the decision to wrap Cultivated was creative after the show’s storytelling began to lean toward a shorter lifespan.

The next season will now air in two parts. The first half will air this summer and the second half will air in 2024.

Since its creation, Cultivated had also become a fan favorite and was one of the highest rated shows on Disney-owned Freeform.

Craig Doyle is the showrunner. In addition to Barris, executive producers include Yara Shahidi, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland, E. Brian Dobbins, and Michael Petok.

The series’ conclusion will mark the end of the “-ish” franchise.

Blackish ended its eight-season run on ABC in April 2022. The prequel series Mixed aired for two seasons on ABC between 2019 and 2021. A spin-off titled Old enough with Fishburne and Jenifer Lewis was also announced, but it ultimately did not move forward.

Over the years, Blackish won multiple NAACP Image Awards, a Peabody Award, and received multiple Emmy nominations, making it the most successful ish series.
