Deon Cole To Return To ‘Black-ish’ Season Finale Which Pays Homage To ‘Good Times’!

Comedy News

Momentum for ABC’s “Black-ish” certainly isn’t slowing down, after a much-talked about recent episode that tackled police brutality, leading to a 3rd season renewal.

Now the show’s executive producer Jonathan Groff confirmed at Paley Fest 2016 over the weekend that Deon Cole, who left the series mid-season to star on TBS’ Angie Tribecca, will be returning to “Black-ish” reprising his role as Charlie Telphy in a special appearance before the end of the season. He also revealed that the show’s season finale will take another trip down memory lane, traveling back to the 1970s with an homage to a comedy hit that’s been in the news lately.​

“The season finale is a homage to the great ’70s sitcom Good Times,” Groff teased. “We will actually see a fever dream of Dre’s [Anthony Anderson] and he visits that world.”

“Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris was previously hired to work on a script for a “Good Times” feature film, I should note.

And about Cole’s return, Groff added: “We said a very tearful goodbye to Charlie in episode 10… We’re going to see him again in a little bit. He’s going to come play for a little bit so we’re really excited about it.”

“Black-ish” airs Wednesdays at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.
