The next chapter of The Fosters will be here before you know it! Freeform has just announced that the spinoff for the long-running scripted series, titled Good Trouble, will be premiering on the network sometime in January.
The thirteen episode first season of Good Trouble will find Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez reprising their roles as Callie and Mariana Adams Foster as the two girls move to Los Angeles to begin their lives as young adults. Mariana will be entering the world of tech and Callie will be continuing with her social work. The series is very much in the same vein as grown-ish, Freeform’s black-ish spinoff that follows Yari Shahidi’s character, Zoey Johnson, as she leaves home to attend college.
The Fosters ran on Freeform for five seasons and 104 episodes, with its series finale airing earlier this year in June. The series followed the ups and downs of an interracial lesbian couple and their multiethnic family of biological, adopted and foster children. In addition to Mitchell and Ramirez, the beloved Adams Foster family included Teri Polo and Sherri Saum as matriarchs Stef and Lena Adams Foster, David Lambert as Brandon, Hayden Byerly as Jude, and Noah Centineo/Jake T. Austin as Jesus.

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]
Since the spinoff plans on keeping ties with the original, fans can expect Paige’s comment confirms that some of their favorite characters will guest-star every now and then. Are you excited to see the next stage of Callie and Mariana’s journey? What do you miss most about The Fosters? 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’.
