What’s on TV Wednesday: ‘grown-ish’ and ‘Atlanta’

The second season of “grown-ish” debuts on Freeform. And the acclaimed sophomore season of “Atlanta” is now available to stream on Hulu.

GROWN-ISH 8 p.m. on Freeform. When this spinoff of Kenya Barris’s “black-ish” debuted at the beginning of last year, James Poniewozik wrote in his review for The New York Times that the series — which follows Yara Shahidi’s character, Zoey, as she goes off to college — “just needs a semester or two away from home.” The spinoff, like its lead character, was still finding its own voice, a coarser one than its parent program thanks to being on cable and about college students. Zoey returns to school for her sophomore year in the show’s second season, which debuts with two new episodes Wednesday night. In the new season, Zoey moves into an off-campus apartment, rekindles a romance and navigates a social sphere defined by hashtags and status updates.

MYTHBUSTERS JR. 9 p.m. on Science Channel. Adam Savage’s rise to fame was marked by explosions. As the bubblier half of the hosting team behind “Mythbusters,” Savage has been seen testing such questions as whether a bullet fired through a plane window can cause explosive decompression and whether using a cellphone at a gas station can cause a caller to go up in flames. He returns in this spinoff series, which features Savage alongside a panel of children working to test the veracity of yet more myths.
