Grown-ish is back with the season 4 premiere scheduled for Thursday, July 8, at 8 PM EST/PST with new episodes airing weekly. The spin-off of Black-ish continues to follow the Johnsons’ eldest daughter Zoey as she navigates her way through college (and adulthood!). In this post, we’ll explain how and where you can watch Grown-ish online from abroad with the help of a VPN. You can also find out what to expect from Grown-ish season 4.
Note that we’ll only be recommending official sources for watching Grown-ish season 4 online. In our experience, unlicensed streams can be taken offline without warning for violating copyright. This means you risk missing out on the Grown-ish season 4 premiere. They also tend to be low-resolution with issues such as excessive lag and buffering. In contrast, official sources are of much higher quality and are usually a lot more reliable.
Grown-ish season 4 will only be available to stream on region-locked platforms. If you’re going on vacation, you’ll need to use a VPN in order to watch via your usual streaming service from home.
How to stream Grown-ish season 4 online with a VPN
A VPN helps you watch Grown-ish season 4 online from anywhere. It does this by providing you with a different IP address once you connect to a server. This makes it look as if you’re browsing from another location, unblocking geo-restricted content in the process.
Here’s how to watch Grown-ish online from anywhere:
- The first step is to sign up with a VPN service. We recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two fast and reliable alternatives.
- Now you can download and install the appropriate VPN app for your streaming device. Indeed, the above VPNs let you connect multiple devices at once.
- Log in to the VPN app and connect to a server in the US to get a US IP address. This is how you unblock Freeform and Hulu from anywhere in the world.
- Go to Freeform (via web or the Freeform app) and sign in via your cable TV provider. It’s also possible to watch cable-free (more on this further below in this post).
- All content should now play without restriction. If not, try clearing your browser’s cookies. Alternatively, it’s worth connecting to another server.

How to watch Grown-ish on US TV
Grown-ish season 4 will first premiere on Freeform on Thursday, July 8. This is a cable TV channel so you’ll need a cable TV subscription in order to watch it directly on Freeform. In this case, all you need to do is sign in via your TV provider and you’re all set! Don’t have cable TV? You can always sign up with a TV streaming service such as Fubo TV ($64.99 USD/month), Hulu with Live TV ($64.99/month), Sling TV ($35/month), or YouTube TV (64.99/month)
It’s worth knowing that Grown-ish season 4 will also be coming to Hulu where it will premiere the next day (Friday, July 9). So if you don’t mind waiting an extra day, this works out much cheaper than signing up with a TV streaming service (although some offer free trials for new customers). Hulu streaming plans cost $5.99/month (with ads) or $11.99/month (no ads).
Watching Grown-ish via Freeform, Hulu, or a TV streaming service such as YouTube TV requires the use of a VPN if you’re outside the US. The reason for this is that their content is subject to copyright and licensing restrictions and is region-locked as a result. You’ll therefore need a US IP address to access its content. NordVPN offers strong unblocking, fast speeds, and includes a 30-day money-back guarantee for you to try it risk-free.
Where else can I watch Grown-ish season 4?
If you’re in Canada, you’ll be able to watch Grown-ish season 4 on ABC Spark. Further good news is that it will premiere in Canada at the same time (8 PM EST on July 8) as in the US. Again, this requires a cable TV subscription. If you have one, sign in via your TV provider and you’ll have access to the content at no added cost. As ABC Spark is only available in Canada, you’ll need a Canadian IP address to watch it from abroad.
While there’s no word yet on a UK season 4 premiere date, season 3 episodes are still in the process of being added weekly to Disney+. As such, it’s quite possible that Grown-ish season 4 will be coming to Disney+ in the UK in the near future. For reference, a Disney+ subscription in the UK costs £7.99 per month or £79.90 per year. Note that to access the UK version of Disney+ from abroad, you’ll need a UK IP address which you can get via a VPN.
What do we know about Grown-ish season 4?
Zoey Johnson is set to begin her senior year. By the end of season 3, Zoey had decided to re-enroll in college and is in a relationship with Aaron. With the first season 4 episode titled “Ugh, those feels again”, it’s a fair guess that not everything is going to go to plan! Based on the season 4 trailer, we can also expect a group vacation in Mexico, a wedding, and pandemic and social justice-related storylines.
Who is in the cast of Grown-ish season 4?
The main cast are all expected to return for Grown-ish season 4. This includes Yara Shahidi as Zoey, Trevor Jackson as Aaron, Fracia Raisa as Lisa, Emily Arlook as Nomi, Diggy Simmons as Doug, Luka Sabbat as Luca, and Chloe and Halle Bailey as Jazz and Sky.
