“Black-ish” called it a breakthrough, a milestone in television history, and star Anthony Anderson doesn’t take it for granted.

“It’s great to be part of something that is guiding the culture,” he said.

From episode to episode. Season after season, the Kenya Barris-created sitcom has lived up to its promise.

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

Now, determined not to delay their welcome, the Johnsons are bowing.

“It feels great to have the opportunity to finish a story,” Anderson said. “There are 13 episodes to bring something to an end and have a solution.”

Ellis Ross admitted to Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America” ​​that she cried most of the final week of filming, in part because she and Anderson watched the kids on their TV – played by Yara Shahidi , Marcus Scribner, Marsai Martin and Miles Brown. – grew up on the set.

“I am so grateful,” Scribner said. “And I think the 14-year-old version of myself would be very proud.”

Martin used the program as a springboard to recommend movies.

“This is not the end, you know,” she said all the way back in 2019. “This is really the beginning.”

The show provided an opportunity for so many others, in front of and behind the camera.

“Women in particular,” says Fishburne. “When you come to our set, you’ll see a diversity rarely seen in our industry.”

And if you see that variety more often on set, then “Black-ish” deserves credit.

“Black-ish” airs Tuesday nights at 9:30 p.m. on this ABC.
