Francia Raisa Previews There Will Be Political Arguments Coming on 'grown-ish'

Francia Raisa snaps a pic with co-star Chloe Bailey inside the Freeform Summit in Los Angeles on Thursday night (January 18).

The two grown-ish stars celebrated their season two renewal at the event along with Yara Shahidi, Trevor Jackson, Jordan Buhat, Halle Bailey, and Emily Arlook.

Speaking with US Weekly at the event, Francia previewed that Ana’s Republican side will be coming out soon.

“There’s so much that happens on this show,” she shared. “I’m the only Republican in our friend group, so expect my voice to be heard on that and an argument to basically start because a lot of people don’t like that side of me. So it touches on a lot of issues.”

Who Stars on Freeform's New Show 'Grown-ish'? Meet The Full Cast Here!

Who Stars on Freeform's New Show 'Grown-ish'? Meet The Full Cast Here!

We are so excited about the premiere of grown-ish tonight on Freeform!

The series is a spinoff from ABC’s black-ish, and centers on Zoey – Dre and Rainbow’s popular, entitled, stylish and socially active 17-year-old daughter — as she heads off to college and quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest.

The show is a contemporary take on the current issues facing both students and administrators in the world of higher education.

“It’s edgier,” Yara says of the show. “It’s not what we’re used to seeing of Zoey or many kids. What I really loved is that it allowed us to relish our youth in a way that isn’t usual on network comedies.”

She adds that the network was perfect for the show too: “Because [Freeform is] so aware of their demographic, we were allowed to tell those storylines without so much [interference]. I know the one note we got from ABC — rightfully so, too — was, ‘Where’s the adult presence?’ On Freeform, that isn’t the case, because it is just so much about our stories as these college students and we’re allowed to really revel in it.”

grown-ish will air back-to-back episodes TONIGHT, starting @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.

Francia Raisa Says Her 'grown-ish' Character Opened Her Eyes To A Lot of Things

Francia Raisa Says Her 'grown-ish' Character Opened Her Eyes To A Lot of Things

Francia Raisa will be back on the small screen in grown-ish, premiering in just a few weeks on Freeform.

The role reunites her with the network, where she used to star on The Secret Life of the American Teenager before it ended its run in 2013.

Preparing for the part required a little extra work for Francia, who will play Ana Maria Patricia Torres, who is a Cuban-American Republican from Miami.

Speaking with US Weekly, Francia opened up about her preperation, and how she actually related to Ana: “She grew up conservative — well, Catholic. I grew up Catholic so that side I understand, having to read the Bible, having to have a rosary, and all that stuff.”

“But on her beliefs, I’m not Cuban at all so I had to learn a lot about Cuba, which is really fun to me and really interesting,” she adds. “It was different and I’m actually really tapping into a different character and really embodying who Anna is. I can try to put a little bit of myself, but she’s so different from me.”

“I think once you understand your character, which is my secret, once you understand your character, the lines just come fast,” Francia went on. “It’s basically just research, lots and lots of research, like, ‘OK, let me understand that side of the party because I’m not Republican,’ and it really opened my eyes to a lot of things.”

grown-ish premieres on Wednesday, January 3rd.
