‘Black-ish’ finale: Johnson family says goodbye after 8 seasons

In more than 175 episodes of eight seasons, “Black-ish” made us laugh as we faced some of the most serious issues of our time — such as police violence, to use just one example.

The series won a Peabody Award in the Entertainment category for its storytelling, and the comedy series was nominated four times for an Emmy Award for Best Comedy.

He bows to a safe place in the history of television and the finale of the series will surely remind the heritage of the series to millions.

“It’s great to be part of something that moves the needle in culture,” said protagonist Anthony Anderson.

You may remember his character expressed the case in the very first episode.

“I will need my family to be black, not black, but black,” said Patriarch Dre Johnson.

And “Black-ish” has responded to its original premise, says the guy who played Pops.

“One of the things we started doing was talking about some things that are hard to talk about,” said Laurence Fishburne. “Especially when it comes to racing in America.”

Now, determined not to remain their welcome, the Johnson family bids farewell to a special episode.

“There are a lot of amazing moments and a lot of issues that you would not even expect to be discussed at Johnson’s house, but they do,” said Marsay Martin, who has played “Diane” from the beginning. “The end will be very shocking for everyone.”

We watched Martin grow up on screen opposite Miles Brown as Jack’s twin brother, and as they grew older, their story matured with them.

“It was a really big discussion for me and my family,” Brown said. “And to think that they could possibly happen to anyone else is very important to me.”

The show has given opportunities to others in front of and behind the camera.

“When you step into our scenes, you see a kind of diversity that is rare to see in our industry,” Fishburne said.

The show’s creator, Kenya Barris, deserves special praise inspired by his family and created a television landmark.

“We exceeded our expectations,” Anderson told the Los Angeles Times. “We pushed the culture forward and avoided nothing.”

Turning his last scene with Traces Ellis Ross as his wife on screen, the actor admitted it was an emotional experience.

“The gates are open for both of us,” he said. “It really hit us both at that moment. That’s it. And it was really heavy and very sad.”
