Watch out world! Zoey and her Cal U friends are getting grown, grown in the upcoming new season of grown-ish. We’re talking new babies and wedding bells! grown-ish Season 4 premieres on Freeform in July.  A 30-second, teaser clip of the new season dropped on Freeform last week, previewing a look at what we can expect. And from the looks of it, someone put a ring on it. 

Season 4 Premieres In July 2021

Season 4 of grown-ish premieres Thursday, July 8 at 8 p.m. EST/PST on Freeform. New episodes will air on Thursdays

“Waiting for July 8th liiiike,” Yara Shahidi, who plays ZoeyJohnson, posted a behind-the-scenes clip on her Instagram on Monday. So are we sis! Are we the only ones who are curious if she and Aaron are going to finally stop playing and make it right? 

Where Season 3 left us

Spoiler alert, if you’re not caught up. But the previous season ended with some big, adulting decisions. For one, Zoey decided to leave her celebrity styling job to go back to school and finish her degree. Mind you at the end of season 2 and beginning of season 3, she had big Cali aspirations to pursue styling. And she did and worked with clients like Joey Badass and his protégé, Indigo, played by rapper, Saweetie, which was more or less a headache. 

When Zoey returns to Cal U, she and Aaron, played by Trevor Jackson, decide to rekindle their on and off-again relationship. But while ‘Zaaron’ is getting back on track, their friends’ love lives are falling apart.  Jazz asked her boyfriend, Doug for space while she trains for track and field.  Javier has been cheating on Ava. And Nomi returns to Cal U with a whole baby! 

Whew! 

Season 4 expectations 

The new season begins with Zoey and her friends starting their senior year at Cal U. Before starting the school year, the crew decides to take their first group vacation to Mexico.  In the short video teaser, a mariachi band playing the show’s theme song “Grown” by Chloe x Halle, empty margarita glasses, ripped-up piñatas, and bikinis. Also shown is a bridal veil and a wedding cake that topples over in the sand. 

So again, we wonder, will Aaron put a ring on it? 

Freeform released a synopsis of the episodes

In Episode 1 of Season 4 titled “Ugh those feels again”, the group goes to Mexico for a summer getaway “filled with drinking games, new hook-ups, some relationship drama … and even a wedding!” And in Episode 2, titled “Drunk In Love,” Zoey and Aaron have a rough first night out as a couple, and “Ana debates with Jazz about Javi and the status of their relationship.” Meanwhile, Doug and Luca have a guys’ night. 

The pandemic will also a theme in the new season, as noted by episode 3 titled “Demons”.
