FIVE REASONS TO WATCH GROW-ISH THIS SEASON

Are you still a season behind on getting into Grown-ish? We promise you it’s not too late to binge watch and here are top five reasons you

1. FASHION! HAIR! FASHION! HAIR!

One of the most intriguing parts of Grow-ish has to be Zoey's fashion and hair choices! We always get a taste of retro, high fashion, or just College girl fresh from Zoey. From her zebra print long sleeve blouse from Topshop for only $20 to her Suzan Embellished velvet Mini Dress from Bloomingdale’s on season 2, you can also find affordable style inspos from Zoey Johnson. Her character is also a natural-haired girl's dream. We have gotten many pins up, braids and kinky curl up do's to accommodate every stylish outfit of hers.

We're looking forward to seeing more fabulousness.

2. DECISIONS

This season we are looking for the continued decisions and evolution of all of the characters, especially Zoey's character. We've watched the choices that she's made about sex, drugs, boys, and friends, cheating on her exam (all which were very realistic decisions by the way). For some reason, many of us are hoping to still see more realistic College choices being made instead of grown women decisions. It makes the scenarios more genuine.

3. PRIDE

The past 2 seasons have opened up on topics which included the LGBTQ+ community. They've touched on the bias that comes with being a bi woman in College vs. being a bi guy, along with the topic of experimenting. Emily Arlook's character Nomi Segal does a fantastic job of being that friend who is comfortable and willing to answer questions about her bisexuality when asked. We are not sure of what season three will correctly tackle, but hopefully, there will be a more in-depth conversation about the trials and struggles, as well as the good, that comes with being a part of the LGBTQ+ community.

4. TWIN POWER!

Well, sister power actually! Chloe and Halle Bailey are an R&B sister duo who are actually 2 years in age difference play twins "Jazlyn and Skylar." The twins, who are part of the school's track team, always bring the real as blunt and honest as they can. The sister energy that is bounced off of each other while acting is phenomenal. They have no issue giving their opinion about black men not checking for black women, but instead checking for non-black women with fake lips and cornrows. The sassy and straight forward delivery of their opinions, along with being a loving part of Zoey's support system are all reason why we should tune in for season 3.

5. COLLEGE NOSTALGIA

Some of us have been out of College for 10 plus years now. Although many things have changed, like the growth of technology and social media, the friendships and pressure of making what you would consider being the best choice at that age still remain the same. The writers do a great job of making the show relate-able and enjoyable to watch no matter what age you are. Some way or somehow you will always feel a sense of nostalgia while watching this series.
