Ahead of the show’s fourth season finale airing later this month, Freeform has given a green light to a fifth season of drama series “Good Trouble.” The announcement came during Tuesday’s virtual TCA press tour session.
“Freeform is evolving with young adults because we are not about an age — Freeform is an attitude,” said the network’s president Tara Duncan during opening remarks. “Series like ‘Good Trouble’ — which I am happy to announce today is being picked up for its fifth season — and our flagship series ‘Grown-ish’ and more recently ‘Cruel Summer,’ ‘Single Drunk Female,’ ‘Everything’s Trash’ and ‘The Come Up,’ our newest series which we are paneling today.”
“Good Trouble” follows the residents of Downtown Los Angeles’ The Coterie as they juggle career, love and the 20-something growing pains at a time in your life where your friends are your family.
“General Hospital” alum Bryan Craig joined the cast during season four as a series regular, playing the role of Joaquin, an independent investigative journalist with a mysterious background.
Created by Joanna Johnson (“The Bold and the Beautiful”), Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg, the series, a spinoff of “The Fosters,” stars Maia Mitchell, Cierra Ramirez, Tommy Martinez, Emma Hunton, Sherry Cola, Zuri Adele, Beau Mirchoff, Josh Pence and Priscilla Quintana along with the aforementioned Craig. Johnson serves as showrunner and executive producer. Christine Sacani, Greg Gugliotta, Jennifer Lopez, Benny Medina, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez also executive produce.
So far this season, “Good Trouble” ranks among the year’s top 10 ad-supported cable dramas among Women 18-34, a core sales demographic for the network.
