Ryan Destiny Heads to grown-ish After Star's Cancellation

She is set to recur on the black-ish spin-off in Season 3

Keisha Hatchett

It's official: Ryan Destiny has booked her first gig since Star's deflating cancellation back in May. The actress and singer is set to recur in Season 3 of Freeform's black-ish spin-off, grown-ish.

Per Deadline, Destiny will continue her penchant for playing extremely likable characters with Jillian, a budding filmmaker who transfers to Cal U from an HBCU. Described as "smart, worldly, and cultured," her well-rounded background allows her to converse with Luca (Luka Sabbat) about art and music, discuss politics and activism with Aaron (Trevor Jackson), and just gab with Zoey (Yara Shahidi) and her crew about everything else.

The new role comes after Star's creator and showrunner Lee Daniels revealed that the canceled Fox series will return as a "movie of the week." While he didn't specify when or where it would air, he did say that they are working on "something real special for you to scream about with all of our cast members, even the dead ones." That's great news for fans looking for closure after that shocking Season 3 cliffhanger.

Ahead of Destiny's run on grown-ish, catch Seasons 1 and 2 which are now streaming on Hulu.
