Fans Of ‘The Fosters’ Rejoice: Teri Polo and Sherri Saum Will Appear In The Show’s Spinoff, ‘Good Trouble’

The Fosters is far from over. The Freeform drama series wrapped last month, but the show’s spin-off, Good Trouble, will include more of the original characters than predicted. According to Deadline, Teri Polo and Sherri Saum are set to guest star.

Good Trouble will follow Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) — who are also IRL BFFs – as they move out of the Fosters home and to Los Angeles to pursue their careers. Their moms, played by Polo and Saum, are the first cast members from The Fosters confirmed to make guest appearances.

It’s unlikely that they’ll be the last, though. “We plan to have all characters from the original series make guest appearances,” said Freeform Executive Vice President Karey Burke. 

Mitchell previously spoke with Her Campus about Good Trouble, and how the show will work. 

“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,” she said. “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.”

The Fosters will still play a role in the spin-off, too. 

“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,” Mitchell said. “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.”

SAME. Deadline reported that production on Good Trouble has begun, and the show is expected to premiere in 2019.
