'The Fosters' Spin-off 'Good Trouble' Currently in Production

Freeform began production in June on Good Trouble, the spinoff to the critically acclaimed drama The Fosters, in Los Angeles. The series, which was announced earlier this year, will follow Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) as they embark on the next phase of their young adult lives in Los Angeles.

Joining Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez as series regulars are fellow neighbors at The Coterie apartment complex: Tommy Martinez (Riverdale) who will portray Gael, a socially conscious and politically active graphic designer; newcomer Zuri Adele who will portray Malika, a whip-smart former foster kid with a pension for social justice; and Sherry Cola (I Love Dick) who will portray Alice, a first-generation Asian American who manages the apartment complex. Roger Bart (Desperate Housewives) will portray conservative Judge Wilson for whom Callie is clerking.

Rounding out the cast are Emma Hunton (Happy Endings), who will portray Davia, a no holds barred teacher who also lives at The Coterie, and Ken Kirby (The Gay and Wondrous Life of Caleb Gallo), who will portray Benjamin, a conservative fellow clerk who works with Callie.

Michael Galante is the latest set to recur on the upcoming drama as Bryan: "A sexy, gay man, Bryan lives in downtown LA and works as an event planner at the Standard Hotel."

The Fosters stars Teri Polo and Sherri Saum will both reprise their roles of Stef and Lena, and Hayden Byerly will also appear as Jude.

Joanna Johnson (The Bold and the Beautiful), Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg serve as creators and showrunners; while Gregory Gugliotta, Christine Sacani, Maia Mitchell, Cierra Ramirez, Jennifer Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina serve as executive producers.

"We're seeing millennials in this country doing extraordinary things, making noise, taking action. Stirring up 'Good Trouble' as they grow, strive and struggle to make the mess of their early twenties into the message," said Joanna Johnson, Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg in a joint statement. "As Callie and Mariana venture to Los Angeles to start their adult lives and embark on their separate but intertwined journeys to change the world, they're going to have all the 'Good Trouble' they can handle."

Good Trouble is produced by Nuyorican Productions, Inc. in association with Freeform. Jon M. Chu ("Crazy Rich Asians") will direct and executive produce the first episode.
