Callie and Mariana from The Fosters are going to be getting into trouble — Good Trouble, that is. Freeform has announced the title of their upcoming Fosters spin-off as Good Trouble. The series will follow the young ladies as they “venture to Los Angeles to start their adult lives and embark on their separate but intertwined journeys to change the world, they’re going to have all the ‘Good Trouble’ they can handle.”
There’s no word on when the new series will start airing but the final episodes of The Fosters will air on June 4th, 5th, and 6th. It seems likely that Freeform will announce the Good Trouble premiere date at that time. Production begins this summer.
Here’s the official Good Trouble press release:
