Tracee Ellis Ross, Golden Brooks, Persia White and Jill Marie Jones will share the small screen once again in an upcoming episode of ‘black-ish,’ marking the first time the quartet have reunited on television since the conclusion of their hit sitcom, “Girlfriends.”
On Thursday, Entertainment Weekly shared the first photo of their appearance on the ABC series, on which Ross stars as Bow Johnson.
“The timing was perfect to be able to bring Girlfriends to a whole new audience. We haven’t all been together on camera since 2006,” Ross tells EW. “Girlfriends ran for eight years and was important to so many people. Being able to merge the worlds of black-ish and Girlfriends was surreal for me—and so much fun. These are women I grew up with and love deeply and it was easy to tap back into the magic of our chemistry and how much we love each other. It was giggles on top of giggles on top of giggles.”
“Girlfriends” ran for eight seasons from 2001-2008 and spawned a spin-off called “The Game.”
The episode of “black-ish” featuring Brooks, White and Jones will air October 8. They play women in Bow’s feminist group.

Black-ish returns for its sixth season on September 24.
