We reviously reported… Lewis is set to star in the “Black-ish” spin-off titled “Oldish.” which will center on Earl “Pops” Johnson (Laurence Fishburne) and Ruby Johnson (Lewis).  This would mark the fourth installment in the “Black-ish” franchise, after “Grown-ish,” and “Mixed-ish.” . 

THR writes that the elder Johnsons will “move to a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of Los Angeles” and it’s there that they’ll “meet characters who represent the old and new faces of the community as they try to make it work as a married couple again.” 

Lewis recently spoke with Entertainment Tonight about what fans can expect from Ruby and Earl on “Old-ish,” saying:

“The show is going to be amazing, we’re coming from that Boomer generation that will give some of that tradition and hard love to everybody watching now. Right now it’s just in development. Kenya [Barris] is writing the pilot as we speak, so when I get the pilot I will know more,” Lewis explained. “But I do know that we’re going to be addressing some of the same issues as we have on Black-ish…We’re going to be talking about gentrification, the differences between the generations, how the internet has changed everything, how Boomers are so clumsy with technical issues, and just a lot of bad interacting, aging. It’s going to be incredible.”

In the clips below, Lewis opens up about being molested by her pastor, and her relationship with Whitney Houston for TV One’s “Uncensored.”
