The Johnsons' commitment to teach their children about their heritage and how to embrace their success as a wealthy family continues in Season 3. Dre (Anthony Anderson) gets more and more involved with politics, deciding to be an active part of the community to show his family that things can change if enough people want it. Meanwhile, Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) has to balance her job, her pregnancy and her children's needs, which, as they get older, are as complicated as ever. As for the kids, Zoey (Yara Shahidi) has a crisis of faith and it's up to her family to show her that God is real and accept that she might just be on a different path; and Junior (Marcus Scribner) starts dating a white girl, prompting his family to face their feelings about biracial couples. Laurence Fishburne also stars as Dre's dad and Tyra Banks makes a return appearance as Dre's childhood friend.
