grown-ish and Good Trouble renewed at Freeform
The news was announced during the 2020 Television Critics Association press tour on Friday during the network’s presentation, hot on the heels of the grown-ish season 3 premiere the night before and the Good Trouble premiere earlier in the week.
The black-ish spinoff grown-ish stars Yara Shahidi, Trevor Jackson, Francia Raisa, Emily Arlook, Jordan Buhat, Chloe Bailey, Halle Bailey, Luka Sabbat, and Diggy Simmons, and is a contemporary take on the issues that students face in the world of higher education. In season 3, the gang returns as confident, eager and seasoned upper-classmen, with Zoey and her girls (… and Vivek) moving into an off-campus home, ready to take on the school year. They quickly realize that they have been mistaken about the disillusionment of adulthood, with real-life problems coming for them, including student loans, work/life balance and, of course, messy breakups. With the renewal, fans will get to see them continuing to deal with these issues in a fourth season.
As for Good Trouble, The Fosters spinoff currently airing season 2B will return for a third season. Starring Maia Mitchell, Cierra Ramirez, Sherry Cola, Tommy Martinez, Zuri Adele, Emma Hunton, and Josh Pence, the series follows residents of The Coterie as they deal with the consequences of their personal and professional decisions and realize that sometimes standing up for what you believe in comes at a price. The current season picks up with Callie and Mariana’s relationship on the rocks after Callie has decided to move in with Jamie and leave the “Coterie Biatches” behind. Alice finds herself balancing her stand-up career with her love life, Davia learns the education system may be broken, Mariana navigates a new world at work, Malika faces legal consequences from her protesting, Dennis finds a new outlet to manage his depression, and Gael’s creative spark is reignited.
grown-ish currently airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. and Good Trouble airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on Freeform. Premiere dates for the new seasons will be announced at a later date.
