Plot Synopsis

In this spinoff of BLACK-ISH, a young Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s, and the dilemmas they face to acclimate in the suburbs while staying true to themselves. Bow's parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they're perceived as neither black nor white. This family's experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one's own identity when the rest of the world can't decide where you belong.
On Tuesday, October 29, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT, ABC premieres "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," a new Halloween-themed episode of MIXED-ISH. The popular girls at school ask Rainbow to join their group Halloween costume as Tootie from THE FACTS OF LIFE. She thinks this is finally her opportunity to fit in, but Denise views the situation differently. Meanwhile, Alicia doesn't want the kids to go trick-or-treating after Harrison and his colleagues tell her about all the dangerous things that can happen. Guest starring is Paulet Del Castillo as Micaela, Trinitee Stokes as Tamika, Isabel Myers as Rebecca, Nate Smith as Jack, Ella McDonald as Jenny, Nico David as Young Paul and Scarlett Hicks as Crystal.
