Freeform has renewed “Good Trouble” for a second season. “Good Trouble,” which hails from Bradley Bredeweg, Peter Paige and Joanna Johnson, is a spinoff of “The Fosters.”
The announcement was made Tuesday morning at the Television Critics Association press tour. The cast was in the Langham Huntington Pasadena ballroom and whooped as they learned the big news at the same time we did, directly from Freeform President Tom Ascheim.
“Good Trouble” follows Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) as they embark on the next phase of their young adult lives in Los Angeles, as Mariana tackles the male-dominated world of tech and Callie faces 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.
So, yes, they’re fosters, named The Fosters, from “The Fosters.”
And yes, Jennifer Lopez is one of the EPs.
“Good Trouble” is executive produced by Johnson, Paige, Bredeweg, Lopez, Gregory Gugliotta, Christine Sacani, Maia Mitchell, Cierra Ramirez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina.
