As expected, Freeform announced today that “Good Trouble” will be coming back for a second season. The announcement was made during this morning’s Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, where President Tom Ascheim surprised the cast members with news of the season 2 pickup. While it may have been a surprise, the news isn’t shocking, as “Good Trouble” is one of the most popular freshman series on the YA network this year.
The show follows Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) as they embark on the next phase of their young adult lives in Los Angeles, 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.
The series itself is executive produced by Joanna Johnson, Peter Paige, Bradley Bredeweg, Gregory Gugliotta, Christine Sacani, Maia Mitchell, Cierra Ramirez, Jennifer Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas,and Benny Medina.
As we mentioned earlier, “Good Trouble” has been doing very well on the network over the past few weeks. Last week’s episode of “Good Trouble,” called “Playing The Game,” marked Freeform’s top drama telecast since June 2018 among Women 18-34 and Females 12-34. That’s a demographic that Freeform has consistently dominated over the past few years, on both linear TV and Streaming, as well as on social media interactions. The episode also ranked as cable’s number-one scripted series among the Females 12-34 demo. “Good Trouble” is still currently airing episodes from the first season, and you can find them online on sites like Hulu, or right from the Freeform app on your favorite device.
