The show’s star, Yara Shahidi gave her co-signed Icy Girl’s appearance. She posted a photo of herself rocking a white wig, with Saweetie. “Hiii @saweetie ❄️aka ZOEY’s NEWEST CLIENT 💁🏽‍♀️ #Grownish”


About her role, Saweetie said to Entertainment Weekly,

“I wanted to make sure I delivered. I feel like with roles, whether if it’s an episode or in a music video, you always have to commit to the emotion of what you’re trying to portray.” She said “I thought it was cool, a little cheating but that’s okay: I played an artist and I’m an artist myself. But the girl’s attitude and personality is completely night and day with mine so I did have to learn about her. She’s a diva, she’s bossy.”


Grown-ish, which has also been renewed for season four, is currently available to stream now on Hulu and will return on January 21, 2021, at 8/7c.
