‘Good Trouble’ Leads a Great January Schedule at Freeform
Plenty to stream this year from the YA network
While other networks are stuffing their January schedule with reality competitions and reruns, Freeform is stacking January with a ton of fan-favorite series. The big series premiere of “Good Trouble” is just around the corner, and Freeform is paring the show with two instant hits from last year.
Freeform will host the series premiere of “Good Trouble” on January 8th, but that’s not all, we also have the Season 2 premieres of “Siren” and “grown-ish” in the same month. The hit comedy “grown-ish” will start the show’s Season 2 schedule on January 2nd, while “Siren” is set to premiere the show’s first Season 2 episode on January 24th.
In the first episode of “Good Trouble,” viewers pick up where “The Fosters” ended, five years in the future, with sisters Callie & Mariana graduating college and moving to downtown Los Angeles. Living with a group of friends in a community style living space, Callie and Mariana navigate the beginning of their careers—Callie clerking for a conservative judge and Mariana in the male-dominated tech space. The sisters and best friends will navigate love, sex, and the complicated relationships that come with living in a new city in your 20s. “Good Trouble” stars Maia Mitchell Cierra Ramirez.
Zoey and the gang return for their sophomore year in “grown-ish” Season 2, and Zoey is determined to make the “sequel” better than the original. She, Ana and Nomi move into a less-than-stellar off-campus apartment and have to adjust to each other as roommates quickly. Zoey is excited to see Luca again after a summer of keeping in touch via social media. The series stars Yara Shahidi, Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Deon Cole.
With more mermaids landing at Bristol Cove’s shores in “Siren” Season 2, the threat of discovery increases. After his encounter with the siren song, Ben tries to cope with the after effects. Maddie’s mom (Garcelle Beauvais) returns to town and tries to connect with her daughter. Meanwhile, Ryn attempts to adapt to life on land. The series stars Alex Roe, Eline Powell, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Ian Verdun, and Rena Owen.
Freeform will most likely continue its social-media domination in the cold winter month, and you can expect increased interaction with the social-media team and the actors leading up to the big premieres.
