The cast of Girlfriends is back together again. Joan, Toni, Maya, and Lynn? Not quite, but we’ll take any colloboration with these four ladies.
Tracee Ellis Ross, Jill Marie Jones, Golden Brooks, and Persia White haven’t shared the small screen together since 2006 when they worked together on the hit sitcom.
“The timing was perfect to be able to bring Girlfriends to a whole new audience. We haven’t all been together on camera since 2006,” Ross tells EW. “Girlfriends ran for eight years and was important to so many people. Being able to merge the worlds of black-ish and Girlfriends was surreal for me — and so much fun. These are women I grew up with and love deeply and it was easy to tap back into the magic of our chemistry and how much we love each other. It was giggles on top of giggles on top of giggles.”
The episode titled “Feminisn’t will premiere on Oct. 8. In it, Diane (Marsai Martin) and Ruby (Jenifer Lewis) don’t particularly embrace feminism to the surprise of Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) who then brings her daughter to her feminist group that includes her friends played by Jones, Brooks, and White. Who else is waiting to watch this renunion episode?
Black-ish is set to return to ABC on September 24 at 9:30 p.m. ET.
