Good Trouble season 4 is in full swing after its hiatus and it's safe to say a lot has already happened—including Callie leaving the show. 

The new episodes, which we had been patiently waiting for since Good Trouble season 3 ended, have yet to disappoint, though things have been emotional to say the least. 

For those who aren't familiar, the series is a spin-off from ABC's The Fosters, first launched back in 2019 when sisters Mariana and Callie Adams-Foster (AKA Cierra Ramirez and Maia Mitchell) moved to Los Angeles together to start their new adult lives, with new jobs and a new set of friends. As expected, however, nothing has gone smoothly for the pair with work troubles, relationship dramas, and sticky friendship situations making up most of the juicy storylines throughout the three seasons. 

Last year, fans got new episodes of the show after a long wait between the second and third season as filming was put on hold during the pandemic. Luckily, it was well worth the wait as everything from the Good Trouble soundtrack to the complex lives of Callie, Mariana and the rest of the gang at The Coterie lived up to our expectations. So far, season four has done the same, though we're already anticipating a crazy ending—the creators have a tendency of leaving us with major cliffhangers. 

In the meantime, here's everything  you need to know about season four and how to watch it while it's still airing and beyond...

The wonderful news that the show would be coming back for another season was confirmed on the show's official Instagram page in 2021, alongside a poster with all our favorite Coterie residents (and Jamie...).

No surprise here—according to Freeform, where the show originally airs, Good Trouble is one of the top 10 most-watched by women under 35.

What time does Good Trouble come on?

If you're watching Good Trouble in real time in the US, Good Trouble comes on on Freeform on Thursdays at 10pm PT. It's available on Hulu the next day.

Is 'Good Trouble' cancelled?

Worry not, Good Trouble has not been canceled—yet. We say yet because it's unclear whether we will get Good Trouble season 5, especially now that Callie has left too. But could Callie return to Good Trouble? We'll keep you posted!

Did Callie leave Good Trouble in season 4?

Sadly, the rumors were true and Callie did in fact leave the show on episode two, season four. In the show, she left to pursue her dream job with the ACLU in Washington D.C, leaving LA and The Coterie behind for a new life. 

The decision was made by Maia Mitchell, who left the show to move back to her native country, Australia, to be close to her family. "The pandemic was really hard for me," she said, explaining her move in an interview with People (opens in new tab) "I know I'm so privileged and I was so lucky to be able to work, but it also meant that I was separated from my family for 18 months. And there was something about not being able to see them if something happened, just the knowledge that you couldn't get on a plane and see each other, was really hard. I just had to be with them."

Who is left in the Good Trouble season 4 cast? 

You can indeed count on all of our main favorites returning for season four. That includes Maia Mitchell (Callie, who appears in the first two episodes only), Cierra Ramirez (Mariana), Sherry Cola (Alice), Tommy Martinez (Gael), Zuri Adele (Malika), Emma Hunton (Davia), Josh Pence (Dennis) and Beau Mirchoff (Jamie).

However, we've also been seeing more of some familiar faces who have become more permanent fixtures with Priscilla Quintana, who plays Isabella—a reoccurring character in the second and third seasons and is the mother of Gael's baby—added to the main cast. 

Similarly, Bryan Craig (The Grand Hotel, General Hospital), and Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga, X-Men: Days of Future Past) also joined the cast as new regulars. Craig plays Joaquin, an independent investigative journalist with a mysterious background, while Stewart plays Luca, an unhoused man Joaquin is doing a story on and befriends. Joaquin's sister Jenna (played by Maiara Walsh) is also making an appearance on the show.
