Freeform’s “Good Trouble” is sure to be the hit new drama of the winter. The series is a spinoff of the popular show “The Fosters,” and directed by Jon M. Chu from “Crazy Rich Asians”. If you’ve been anywhere near a streaming platform or YouTube over the last few months, you’ve probably seen a few ads for the new series. Freeform has been pushing the new show heavily for the last few weeks, and tonight was the big premiere on the network. With a hit director, a spinoff of a previous hit series on the same network, and a gorgeous cast of young actors; “Good Trouble” has all of the ingredients you need to make a binge-able drama.
Ahead of the premiere, the cast and executive producers of the show came together at the Palace Theatre in downtown Los Angeles to watch the first episode. The show stars Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez, along with Tommy Martinez, Sherry Cola, Zuri Adele, and Roger Bart.
Freeform’s secret weapon has always been its social media team, who continues to write the book on how to engage with audiences and fans. We won’t have the engagement numbers for the next few days, but if it’s anything like what Freefrom did for “Pretty Little Liars” or “The Bold Type,” the new show will most likely top the charts for the day.
If you missed the premiere, the episode is also available on Hulu or the Freeform app. We won’t spoil any of it for you, so stream it and give the new series a try.
“Good Trouble” follows Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) as they embark on the next phase of their young adult lives 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.
