The Fosters and Good Trouble

In the series focuses on Stef (Polo) and Lena (Saum), a lesbian couple. The couple has built a close family with Brandon (David Lambert) who is Stef’s biological son from her previous marriage.
The couple also has adopted twins, Mariana (Ramirez) and Jesus (Noah Centineo). The family extends to adopted siblings Jude and his half-sister Callie played by Hayden Byerly and Mitchell respectively.
Good Trouble plot
Now Good Trouble will focus on Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) who moves out of the Fosters home to Los Angeles for the betterment of their career. Also, Noah CEntineo is set to appear in at least two episodes in the spinoff series.
Mitchell shared some of the plots with her fans:
“It takes place about a year after—right after where the finale of The Fosters left us. So, Callie and Mariana have relocated to Los Angeles. They’re living downtown and they’re kind of lost. They have a lot of new roommates, and there’s going to be a lot of new characters. Callie is a first-year law clerk, so she’s working for a conservative judge, which she’s going to kind of struggle with and kind of try to reconcile throughout the season. And Mariana is working at a tech startup and kind of fighting the patriarchy. It’s quite political.”
She further added:
“You’re going to see, basically, the heart of The Fosters and what was so relatable about The Fosters, just through a different lens. I’m really excited about it. We’re about a month into shooting, and it’s so much fun. This new cast is so talented and there’s also some of the cast from our Fosters family as well. So, it’s really exciting, and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Fun fact, Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez are BBFs in real life!
