Tyra Banks Black-ish Cast

Tyra Banks Cast in black-ish Season 2

black-ish just got a little more fierce.

America’s Next Top Model boss Tyra Banks will guest-star on the ABC comedy’s upcoming Season 2, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Banks will play a version of herself as Dre’s best friend, series creator Kenya Barris says, in a story based on his own longstanding, real-life friendship with the fashionista.

“I give my wife a lot of credit; I grew up with [Banks], but my wife came into a situation where my best friend from 4 years old is a supermodel,” he adds, laughing. “She’s a very good sport.”

The comedy returns Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 9:30/8:30c. Look for Banks to make her black-ish debut around the middle of the season.
