Election Special

ABC

Ahead of the presidential election, the cast of black-ish will air two election specials. One will be animated while the other will be live action. The special will release in early October, and according to ABC, the special will follow two plots having to do with the election:

"Junior is excited for his first time voting but discovers he has been purged from the voter polls so he does a deep dive into why – trying to understand the systems in place for voter registration."

"In a special animated episode, Dre's colleague Stevens (Peter Mackenzie) makes an ill-advised decision to run for Congress, so Dre enlists his family's help and campaigns against him but gets caught up with fundraising and private interest groups."

The cast for the special includes: Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Marcus Scribner, Miles Brown, and Marsai Martin. In a statement, ABC explained the special further:

"The Johnsons and "black-ish" return to ABC with a special one-hour television special on SUNDAY, OCT. 4 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. The two back-to-back episodes, which will air ahead of the official season seven premiere, will follow the Johnsons as they navigate the upcoming election, with Junior (Marcus Scribner) embarking on his journey as a first-time voter and Dre (Anthony Anderson) launching an exploration into local politics. The special will be presented in part as an animated episode. Oscar® winner Matthew A. Cherry ("Hair Love") is set to direct. An official premiere date for the highly anticipated seventh season will be announced shortly."

The black-ish Election Special will air on Sunday, October 4th at 10 PM ET on ABC.
