Is 'Good Trouble' season 6 coming, or has the show been cancelled?

The fifth season is underway, but what about 'Good Trouble' season 6? Has the show been picked up or picked off? Here's what we know so far

The Coterie crew is back on our screens yet again, but will we get a Good Trouble season 6?

A spin-off of The Fosters, Good Trouble season 5 dropped on Freeform on Thursday, March 16 (it streams on Hulu the next day, FYI), and has already packed in plenty of drama in a few weeks. The first few episodes alone had us questioning, "Does Evan die in Good Trouble?" and "Is Callie returning?" (Yes, season five saw the much-anticipated return of Maia Mitchell's character, who left the show in episode two of season 4 to begin a new life in D.C. working with the ACLU. 

But now that we're deep in the show's fifth season, we can't help but wonder about its sixth. Will we have more adventures from Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) and her Coterie comrades? Here's what we know. (And if you need to catch up, here's where to watch Good Trouble no matter where you are in the world.)

'Good Trouble' season 6: what we know

Freeform has not yet announced whether it was renewing the drama series for season 6. The previous season pick-up was announced in August 2022, just ahead of the Good Trouble season 4 finale in September. So if we use that as a metric, we may be hearing about a renewal in the next few weeks, as the season 5 finale is quickly approaching. 

Is 'Good Trouble' cancelled?

As of publication, Good Trouble has not been cancelled by Freeform. However, given that the series has also not been officially renewed, cancellation could be sadly in the cards for the long-running show. We'll keep you posted as soon as we hear either way!

Who will be in the 'Good Trouble' season 6 cast?

There has been no confirmation yet on who will return should Good Trouble get picked up for a sixth season, but we'd put money on seeing these main cast members again: 

  • Cierra Ramirez as Mariana Adams Foster.
  • Zuri Adele as Malika Williams.
  • Sherry Cola as Alice Kwan.
  • Bryan Craig as Joaquin Peréz.
  • Emma Hunton as Davia Moss.
  • Tommy Martinez as Gael Martinez.
  • Josh Pence as Dennis Cooper.
  • Priscilla Quintana as Isabella Tavez.

And though Mitchell did return to play Callie in the fifth season, the actress did so as a "guest star," not as a series regular, so we're not expecting to see her full-time next season. 

Another character we're not sure we'll be seeing again is Evan (T.J. Linnard), who tragically took a bullet while helping Mariana, Joaquin, and Jenna escape Silas' farm in the Good Trouble season 5 premiere. Though he was alive, he was in a coma for a while, with Mariana acting as his proxy, and when he woke up, he couldn't remember the past two years of his life due to the strokes he suffered. 

Given how dire his medical situation has been this season, we'll have to see how things play out with the character if he'll be joining the rest of the cast in the next one. 

Good Trouble airs on Freeform on Thursdays at 10pm EST and is available to stream next-day on Hulu.
