Ryan Destiny from the hit drama show Star is joining season 3 of Grownish!
Destiny is set to play the recurring role as jillian, a transfer student from an HBCU who has come to study filmmaking at Cal U. She is a well rounded student who can talk art, music, politics and can fit in with any crew on campus!
Destiny will star along with Trevor Jackson, Yara Shahidi and Luka Sabbat. The cast also includes Chloe and Halle Bailey, Diggy Simmons, Francia Raisa, Emily Arlook, Jordan Buhat, and Deon Cole.
Grownish was created by Kenya Barris and produced by ABC Signature Studios. Executive producers include Helen Sugland, Brian Dobbins, Anthony Anderson, Julie Bean, Jenifer Rice-Genzuk Henry, Craig Doyle, and Laurence Fishburne.
Grownish focuses on Zoey (Shahidi) and her friends on their journey to adulthood. The show follows them as they navigate through trials and tribulations during their years at college. After learning from their mistakes freshman year, the crew thinks they have their sophomore year under control but are shortly proven wrong. They may think they are grown, but surely they are not! As Kenya Barris put it, it is “that in between place where you're not quite an adult but facing grown world problems for the first time.”
Season 2 of Grownish airs Wednesdays at 8 PM on Freeform. Let us know what you think about Ryan Destiny joining the Grownish fam.
