Yara Shahidi Brings ‘Grown-ish’ to the 2019 ATX Television Festival

Yara Shahidi was spotted in Austin, Texas this weekend (June 8), as she promoted the season 2B of her Freeform series Grown-ish at the 2019 ATX Television Festival.

At the event, Yara was joined by her co-stars Trevor Jackson, Francia Raisa, and Jordan Buhat as they screened a new episode of their show and hosted a Q&A session for the audience.

When discussing the second half of the latest season, Yara revealed that her character Zoey will be going through a new way of living after being cut off by her father at the end of the first half of the season.

“This is the first time that Zoey is generally out of her bubble because she’s always had that socioeconomic status to fall back on,” Yara said. “Even in those moments where she is connected to the world around her, there’s that layer of the class system and the fact that she has been raised in this wealthier lifestyle.. so her being cut off is such a shift… I appreciate the journey the character goes on.”

You can catch Grown-ish on Wednesday nights on Freeform. The show is also available to stream on Hulu.
