It’s the end of an era.

More from Deadline

Freeform’s grown-ish ended its run Wednesday night after six seasons with Junior (Marcus Scribner) celebrating his graduation in a bit of an unexpected way.

While he and his friends are hoping for one last hoorah before their adult life begins, Junior’s plans for a graduation party are interrupted by his new boss, who needs him to tend to a client’s yacht all day instead. Fresh off a rejected proposal, Aaron (Trevor Jackson) decides to join him and hopefully avoid Zoey (Yara Shahidi) at all costs.

Their friends have other ideas, though. Before long, this stranger’s yacht is filled to the brim with 20-somethings and bottles of alcohol.

Junior spends much of the party pretty frantically trying to make sure his boss doesn’t find out that he’s throwing a party on their client’s boat without permission. But, unfortunately for him, there are cameras. On the bright side, his boss is somehow not at all upset about this unsanctioned party, because Junior did technically tend to the boat as he was asked.

This whole situation also puts Zoey and Aaron in an awkward situation, as they’re now stuck on this boat together. Pretty quickly, Zoey tries to apologize to Aaron, explaining that she does want to marry him, but, you know, their adult lives have barely begun.

After a bit of thinking, Zoey decides that she’d like to go through with it, if Aaron will take her back. Which, of course he will. He’s only been pining after her since the pilot.

There’s no time for any wedding planning either, because the happy couple hijack the party and decide to exchange nuptials right then and there.

The finale also welcomes back some of the original cast, including Emily Arlook, Jordan Buhat, and Francia Raisa.

During a conversation about how it’s been more difficult for these friends to stay in touch than they thought post-college, Ana and Vivek reveal they’ve been trying for a baby but recently experienced a miscarriage. They vow to make more of an effort to keep tabs on each other’s lives and seek support when needed.

Elsewhere, Nomi is well on her way to becoming a lawyer and continues to raise her daughter, Luna. Even Luca (Luka Sabbat) makes an appearance via video call for the special occasion.

In addition to wrapping up six seasons of grown-ish, the episode also closes the chapter on the entire black-ish universe — at least for now.
