When ABC announced its "fall" schedule on Wednesday, Black-ish was missing, with plans for it to return at midseason. But ABC has changed its mind after speaking to creator Kenya Barris. As a result of the move, Kyra Sedgwick's Call Your Mother, which was to be paired with The Conners, will move from fall to midseason and be replaced by Black-ish. Black-ish has been devoted to telling stories about African-American history, including an episode devoted to Juneteenth. "Black-ish has a long-standing history of shining a light on current events and honoring Black voices through the lens of the Johnson family,” said ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke. “After speaking with Kenya and our creative partners, we decided it was important to tell these meaningful stories during this moment in time, so we are adjusting our premiere schedule and are committed to doing whatever it takes to bring this series back as soon as we possibly can. Following recent monumental events, it’s imperative that the dialogue continues and empowers viewers to raise their voices, and there is no other show that does that like black-ish."
