“#blackAF” has been renewed for a second season at Netflix.
The single-camera comedy stars Kenya Barris as a fictionalized version of himself living with his wife and children in Los Angeles. Rashida Jones co-stars as his wife, Joya. Their children are played by Genneya Walton, Iman Benson, Scarlet Spencer, Justin Claiborne, Ravi Cabot-Conyers, and Richard Gardenhire Jr.
Barris and Jones also executive produce along with Hale Rothstein. Rothstein previously collaborated with Barris on his ABC series “Black-ish” and the Freeform spinoff “Grown-ish.” Barris produces via his company, Khalabo Ink Society.
The show is the first to be produced under Barris’ overall deal with the streaming giant. He made major waves when it was announced he was exiting his deal at ABC Studios for one reportedly worth nine figures at Netflix. He was one of several high-profile creators to make the move to the streaming service at the time, with others being Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy.
