ABC has announced plans to renew its hit comedy “Black-ish” for a sixth season, in addition to rolling out another spinoff, “Mixed-ish,” based on a younger version of the character Rainbow Johnson, focusing on her upbringing in a mixed-race family in the ’80s.

Created by award-winning writer/producer Kenya Barris, “Black-ish” stars Anthony Anderson as Andre “Dre” Johnson and Tracee Ellis Ross as Rainbow, who is based on Barris’ wife, Dr. Rainbow Barris — with whom he shares six children.

Here’s a breakdown of the show via USA Today:

In “Mixed-ish,” the younger Rainbow (called Bow, played by Arica Himmel) recounts the dilemmas her family faced “over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves” when her parents decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to support their family, according to a description of the series.
