ABC's "black-ish" stars in 2015, Marsai Martin, Miles Brown, Yara Shahidi, Marcus Scribner, Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, and special guest star, Laurence Fishburne.

"[It's the] most rewarding job I've ever had," Anderson said. "Best cast I've ever worked with. It gets no better than what we've all been doing for the last six years -- that's all I can say about everybody."

Fishburne, who guest stars as the paternal head of the family, said he has treasured watching the young cast grow up.

"One of the greatest things for us, I can say I think, is watching these young people grow up in front of us," he said. "They were wonderful kids to start with, but now they're young adults and they've become really wonderful young adults and we're very proud of them."

Ellis Ross, who was known for "Girlfriends" long before the hit ABC family comedy sitcom, was pleasantly surprised to hear their three younger co-stars knew of her role on the former TV series.

"I remember going into the audition and I was like, 'Oh, Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross from "Girlfriends," so that was one of the driving factors," Scribner, who was born the year the show premiered, said.

Brown, whose character Jack gets cut from the basketball team on the show, revealed it's actually his favorite sport adding, "I should say I'm decent."

"It was just different cause I had to get in the mood that I was sad that I got cut from the basketball team, when normally that's not the case," he boasted.

The latest episode of "Black-ish" airs on ABC, Tuesday night.
