Attention, The Fosters fans! You wait is finally over - almost - as Freeform has announced today that “Good Trouble,” the highly anticipated spin-off of the groundbreaking family drama, will premiere on Tuesday, January 8!
The pilot, executive produced and directed by Jon M. Chu (“Crazy Rich Asians”), follows Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) as they embark on the next phase of their young adult lives in Los Angeles. We will see Mariana tackling the male-dominated world of tech and Callie facing the harsh realities of the federal legal system clerking for a federal judge.
After moving to The Coterie in Downtown Los Angeles, Callie and Mariana realize that living on their own is not all that it’s cracked up to be. Faced with new neighbors, new challenges and, of course, new romances, the sisters must depend on one another to navigate the City of Angels. The series also stars Tommy Martinez as Gael, Sherry Cola as Alice, Zuri Adele as Malika, and Roger Bart as Judge Wilson.
Joanna Johnson, Peter Paige, and Bradley Bredeweg serve as creators and showrunners, while Gregory Gugliotta, Christine Sacani, Maia Mitchell, Cierra Ramirez, Jennifer Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Nuyorican Productions, Inc., in association with Freeform. Freeform’s original scripted roster includes “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger,” “Siren,” “The Bold Type,” “grown-ish,” “Alone Together,” and the highly anticipated upcoming series “Good Trouble” and “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists.”
