While you may have to wait until 2020 in order to see the final episodes of Good Trouble season 2, there is something coming up beforehand: A holiday special!
In a new video (which CarterMatt has for you to check out below), Freeform confirmed that there is going to be a special coming up later this year where you’ll get a chance to spend the holiday season at the Coterie. It looks warm and festive, but we don’t think all of the drama of the season to date is going to be going away completely.
So why do a holiday special for a show like this? The simplest answer that we can offer here is that the writers want to create a world for these characters that is 100% immersive. If you see the characters celebrate holidays, it makes them feel more relateable and sharing a holiday episode in the summer just doesn’t have that same impact. To go along with that, it gives you something to look forward to and allows you an opportunity to have something to watch back years down the road to add to some other holiday favorites. We think that the stories within this Good Trouble special will be linked to the first half of the season (it’s hard for them not to), but there is also going to be some sort of timeless quality to the episode. That way, you can continue to have people coming back to see it each holiday season.
In speaking about the special via People Magazine, executive producer Joanna Johnson had the following to say about it:
“We haven’t done a holiday episode yet and the idea of Christmas at the Coterie not only rolls off the tongue — but what’s a communal Christmas look like? With everyone celebrating the holidays with their own traditions? Do they collide or commingle?”
We imagine that as we get a little bit closer to the holidays, more details about the special will be revealed! We have to imagine that it was a strange experience for the cast to film something holiday-oriented so much earlier this year, about as far away from Christmas as you are possibly going to find. We’re not so concerned about traditions co-mingling or causing problems.
