Tracee posted this on Instagram last night with the caption "Sooo excited for @DaveedDiggs to star as Bow's bro on @blackishABC Season 3! #blackish #Hamilton #WeMightReallyBeRelatedTho" (She makes a solid point with that last hashtag).

Black-ish creator/showrunner Kenya Barris told Variety that Daveed will have a "substantial" reoccurring story arc and will appear pretty early in Season 3.

Kenya also describes his character Johan as "Sort of a hipster, entitled kid who gets on Dre’s nerves. He’s constantly on a search for the best conditioner for his hair. He’s probably gone to Penn or Wharton and could have gotten a great-paying job, but he’s trying to find himself."
