Michelle Obama will appear in the upcoming season of the ABC series “black-ish.” The former first lady of the USA will make a guest appearance when the comedy series enters its final round with season 8.
The sitcom, produced by Kenya Barris, deals with topics related to the zeitgeist. Viewers experience current events such as systemic racism, the COVID-19 pandemic, equality and the US elections through the eyes of the Johnson family. The serious topics are made accessible to the general public in a relaxed manner.
What Role Will Michelle Obama Play?
Michelle Obama will play herself in “black-ish,” that much should be said. However, it has not yet been announced in what form the Johnson family will meet Ms. Obama. She shared her delight in her new role on Twitter.

The guest appearance in “black-ish” is not Obama’s first foray into entertainment. She has already worked as a producer on Netflix productions such as “We The People.” She has also made a guest appearance on the NBC series “Parks and Recreation.”
Black-ish Season 8 Will Be The Last
The show was renewed by ABC for an eighth and final season back in May 2021. The seventh season consisted of 15 episodes but was cut short due to the Covid-19 pandemic. On the other hand, the last season grabbed a six-episode lineup and is scheduled to premiere later this year.
Over the years, the show has managed to be a part of the top 10 comedy shows and has been graced with several awards and multiple Emmy nominations. The popularity of drama revolving around an upper-class Black family resulted in Disney ordering a third spin-off titled ‘Old-ish,’ which is currently in development.
On the other hand, one of its spin-offs, ‘Mixed-ish,’ is awaiting confirmation about its fourth season.
