'Good Trouble Holiday Special': Air date, time, plot, cast, trailer and everything you need to know about the Christmas episodes
Callie, Marina and the rest of the coterie is returning with some Holiday style classic 'Good Trouble' (Freeform)

'Tis the season to be jolly and The Coterie is getting particularly jubilant as renters at the apartment building are coming together to celebrate the festive season with a two-hour long episode titled the 'Good Trouble Holiday Special'.

All that Christmas cheer aside, big things are apparently in store for the show's leading ladies — Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Marina Foster's (Cierra Ramirez.) But they won't be the only familiar faces returning on Freeform to entertain us with the ever so touching plots encompassing all prevalent social issues through extremely diverse and inclusive stories. Holiday Special' is airing re's all that awaits the upcoming special!

Air date

'Good Trouble Holiday Special' is airing on Monday, December 16, at 8/9c.




Divided into two halves, the special's first part/episode is called 'Nochebuena' — the Spanish word for goodnight, and Christmas Eve.

According to the official synopsis: "Callie struggles to tell her moms about quitting her clerkship. Mariana agrees to volunteer for a holiday festival for the underprivileged. Alice is hiding a secret from the Coterie. Davia strolls down memory lane with Dennis, opening old wounds."

The second half, titled 'A Very Coterie Christmas', follows "the Fosters and the Hunters as they help out with the impromptu volunteer Christmas event. Stef agrees to be a part of Mariana’s plan to avoid a major catastrophe, all while Gael and Jazmine deal with a painful family decision. Jamie is eager to ask Callie a very important question."


The Freeform show is created by Joanna Johnson, Bradley Bredeweg, Peter Paige.




Expect to see our favorite faces from the Coterie return for the special. That means along with Mitchell and Ramirez, there will be Sherry Cola returning as Alice Kwan - the manager at the coterie.

Sherry's girlfriend Joey can be seen in the special too, so expect Daisy Eagan to give us some of more iconic scenes courtesy Alice and Joey and their ever-evolving relationship. Zuri Adele returns as Callie and Marina's roommate Malika, and Beau Mirchoff will be back to woo us all with the dreamy Jamie,


As revealed by now, the entire Foster Adams fam is reuniting for the holidays to celebrate some good ole' Christmas cheer; but don't let that deceive you from what the show is truly about at its core — the troubles and the way the family tackles them in their own authentic ways.

Based on the sneak peeks released by now, Jamie and Callie are expected to bump up the romance which is most likely to be interrupted by a family emergency that Marina brings up to Callie.


But there's a special reason behind the burst of romance as Jamie is most likely going to be proposing to Callie in the special! Or so the secret little box with him teases. They aren't the only couple stealing the attention though as Steph and Lana also return to The Coterie; sure, their return is marked with some trouble here and there, 


The official trailer with all the teased plot developments is finally here! Check it out:
