With “black-ish” and “mixed-ish” being canceled, Kenya Barris is back with more “ish.” This time, he’s teaming up with Eva Longoria for a series about a modern Latinx family. Is it needed? Sound off inside…

No shade to anyone trying to get their coins in Hollywood, but yeah, we’re kinda over all the “ish.”

As you may have heard, EMMY nominated show “black-ish” will be ending with the eighth season of the series and “Mixed-ish” was given the axe after two seasons. “Grown-ish” – starring Yara Shahidi – has NOT been canceled.

Now, Kenya Barris is reportedly working with actress Eva Longoria for a new series titled, “Brown-ish,” which would center around a modern Latinx family.

“Brown-ish is still a concept that is in development, we haven’t rolled out the firm plans around that yet,” ABC Chief Craig Erwich told Deadline. There were also rumors of Old-ish, a series that would be centered on Laurence Fishburne and Jenifer Lewis’s characters. “On old-ish, we have no current plans to make it as a pilot.”

Overall, “when we talk about the world of black-ish, there are so many different iterations that we are open to; it’s really up to Kenya who is the master and the captain of the franchise,” Erwich said.

The series hasn’t been confirmed yet and is reportedly in development.

Is this really needed though? We’re kinda over all the “ish” and so is social media:
