Freeform announced its slate of summer premiere dates at its annual summit on Wednesday, including for the second season of “Good Trouble,” and new outings of “Siren” and Kenya Barris’ “Grown-ish.”
“Grown-ish” will pick back up after its cliffhanger finale on Wednesday, June 5. Per Freeform, “The second half of the season continues to explore important topics, including cultural appropriation, mental health, academic scandal and more.”
“Good Trouble,” the network’s spinoff of its hit “The Fosters,” will return for its second season on Thursday, June 18, along with its digital aftershow, “The Trouble With.” Then, on Thursday, July 11, the mermaid-horror drama “Siren” will return for the back-half of its second season.
Freeform also announced a super-sized finale for the fan favorite “Shadowhunters” and two new animated series in development.
“Betches,” inspired by the popular multimedia brand of the same name, is described as “a half-hour, irreverent animated series that will follow three best friends and roommates as they navigate early adulthood in New York City together.”
Rachel Koller will write the pilot, with “American Horror Story” star Emma Roberts on board as an executive producer alongside Betches Media co-founders Samantha Fishbein, Jordana Abraham and Aleen Kuperman. Carli Haney, Kesila Childers and Gil Goldschein of Bunim-Murray will also executive produce.
Aminder Dhaliwal is also set to adapt her graphic novel, “Woman World,” which “playfully answers the question, ‘What would our world look like if men became extinct?'” according to the network. Geek & Sundry’s Felicia Day is attached as executive producer.
