We’ve known for a while that Freeform’s upcoming Foster’s spinoff Good Trouble would be hitting the network sometime in January but now the official premiere date has been released! So, mark your calendars for January 8, 2019 and join Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez as they reprise their roles as Callie and Mariana Adams Foster in the City of Angels!
Good Trouble follows the pair to Los Angeles as they begin their lives as young adults. Mariana will be entering the world of tech and Callie will be continuing with her social work. For those who can’t wait to see the two sisters in action, you’re in luck as Freeform also released an exclusive clip from the pilot! The scene finds Callie and Marianna attempting to look at a loft that was recommended by Callie’s “coworker and future boyfriend.” Should they end up getting the place, which astonishingly comes with free toilet paper, they’ll be staying in an “intentional community” that has Sad Girl Parties. Looks like things are going to get pretty interesting. Check out the clip below!
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Foster’s spinoff without some Fosters. David Lambert (Brandon), Terri Polo (Stef), Sherri Saum (Lena), Hayden Byerly (Jude) and Noah Centineo (Jesus) are all set to appear in various episodes throughout the season.

You live with your family for a while and then you move out into the world and you still have your family, you just don’t get to see them every night when you go home for dinner. One of the reasons we said, ‘Yes, we absolutely have to make this show,’ was so that we could keep the entire Fosters clan alive,” Executive Producer Peter Paige told EW earlier this year. [/row]
The Fosters ran for five seasons and 104 episodes on Freeform, with its series finale airing earlier this year in June. It followed the ups and downs of an interracial lesbian couple and their multiethnic family of biological, adopted and foster children. It was executive produced by Jennifer Lopez and ran on the network from 2013-2018.
Will you be tuning in to the next chapter for Callie and Mariana? Let us know!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
