As you already know, Yara Shahidi is #BlackGirlMagic personified. The black-ish star continues to pull double duty, killing it on the small screen and on the school front (she’s heading to Harvard in 2018) — and now you can add one more credit to her name.

It’s been rumored for months that Shahidi’s Zoey Johnson character would get her own spin-off following her life in college, but now that gossip is fact. Beginning early 2018, Yara will be grown-ish!

The spin-off, formerly titled College-ish, will air on Freeform and is set to start production next month. Starring alongside Shahidi will be black-ish star Deon Cole, Trevor Jackson, Chris Parnell and Emily Arlook.

According to Deadline:

grown-ish follows the Johnson’s eldest daughter Zoey (Shahidi) as she heads off to college and quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest. Deon Cole plays Charlie, Dre’s eccentric and unpredictable co-worker at Stevens & Lido. Arlook plays Miriam, a freshman know-it-all at Southern California University with a no holds barred attitude. Parnell plays the dean of Southern California University. Jackson will portray a socially-conscious sophomore at Southern California University.

“grown-ish reflects what we’ll be dealing with in the show – that in between place where you’re not quite an adult but facing grown world problems for the first time,” said creator and executive producer Kenya Barris. “Where black-ish examines what it means to be black, grown-ish is an examination of what it is and what it means to be grown.”

We. Can’t. Wait!
