Both renewals were announced during Freeform's turn at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. 

The cast of Good Trouble had no idea the show was being renewed so soon, so it came as a bit of a shock to them when network executives announced it.

Thirteen episodes have been ordered for Good Trouble Season 2. The series follows Callie and Mariana Adams-Foster as they embark on new lives in Los Angeles. 

Once there, they wind up living in a communal living space. It was a perfect way to bring in the rich storytelling viewers will recall from the original series.

Good Trouble has not been the heavy hitter in the ratings the network was expecting. 

Through four episodes, the series is currently averaging just over 300,000 viewers and a 0.16 rating in the adults 18-49 demo.

These are based on live + same day metrics. Young-skewing series are more likely to pull in more viewers post-airdate, so it's expected that the series is building substantially. 

That being said, Good Trouble is way down from the final season of The Fosters, which averaged a sturdier 619,000 viewers and a 0.25 rating.

As for Grown-ish, the show has shown stability in its second season. As such, the renewal was a no brainer. 

The series plays well on the DVR front, so that's a major positive. 

New episodes of Good Trouble air on Tuesdays, while new episodes of Grown-ish air Thursdays.
