The Black-ish episode that no one has ever seen before will finally make its debut on Hulu.
The episode, titled “Please, Baby, Please”, focused on racism and the state of the country one year after Donald Trump was elected President and was shelved by Disney/ABC in 2018.
Now, Hulu will finally be airing the episode, which Kenya Barris, the series creator, announced the news on Twitter this week.
“In November 2017, we made an episode of ‘black-ish’ entitled ‘Please, Baby, Please.’ We were one year post-election and coming to the end of a year that left us, like many Americans, grappling with the state of our country and anxious about its future,” he wrote. “Those feelings poured onto the page, becoming 22 minutes of television that Iwas, and still am, incredibly proud of.
He added, “‘Please, Baby, Please’ didn’t make it to air that season, and while much has been speculated about its contents, the episode has never been seen publicly… until now.”
“I cannot wait for everyone to finally see the episode for themselves and, as was the case nearly three years ago, we hope it inspires some much-needed conversation — not only about what we were grappling with then or how it led to where we are now, but conversations about where we want our country to go moving forward and, most importantly, how we get there together,” Kenya concluded.
The episode shows Dre reading a story to his youngest son, DaVonte, while being interrupted by many of his family members, who open up about the issues facing Black people in the country.
