The Good Trouble premiere is coming onto Freeform in the new year and based on the new promo, Callie and Mariana are going to have plenty of problems ahead for them in Los Angeles.
On paper, everything seems to be going great for them as they prepare to start living the dream. They’re heading up from San Diego, they have big aspirations for the future, and they think that the world is really their oyster. Then, they realize that things aren’t anywhere near as great. First, they get fined for marking in the wrong spot. Then, it just so turns out that their new apartment is a dump. Things are going to get worse before they get better for the two, mostly because they’re trying to make it in a hyper-competitive city with very little money and resources. This series could very well be about the two of them finding a way to pick themselves up and preparing for whatever lies ahead. Maybe they are going to find a way to make it … or maybe they’ll just end up falling flat on their face. That’s something that we’re going to have a better chance to explore over time.
What we do know at the moment is that Freeform is very much still trying to market this show as a more adult version of The Fosters. After all many of that show’s original cast will be appearing at some point and, beyond just that, many of the storylines and struggles will carry over. Everything that happened over that show’s run is still very much a part of who these two characters are now: They’re still trying to make their way in the world, but they may be aided by the fact that they’ve gone through more in just a couple of decades-plus than many other people have in their entire lives. They’re about to put some of those skills to use, and maybe make some new friends along the way. (Oh, and of course there are probably also going to be love interests — it wouldn’t be a show like this without it.)
New episode of Good Trouble are going to premiere in January, and one of the larger questions that we’re set to wonder here is mostly whether or not viewers will flock to this show even if they’ve never watched The Fosters before. That’s really going to be the largest determining factor in its long-term success … though admittedly, Freeform has had a rather-hard time in general of keeping any of its shows on the air for an extremely lengthy period of time. There is such a wide abundance of shows that haven’t made it past three seasons that it’s hard to really name them all.
