Freeform is delaying some of its series in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
With several TV shows forced to shut down amid stay-at-home orders, there are some changes coming to the network's schedule.
Freeform’s number one comedy series grown-ish, which had its midseason finale in March, will return to the network next year to finish up season three.
Starring Yara Shahidi, Trevor Jackson, Francia Raisa, Emily Arlook, Jordan Buhat, Chloe Bailey, Halle Bailey, Luka Sabbat, and Diggy Simmons, grown-ish is produced by ABC Signature Studios, a part of Disney Television Studios, and executive produced by Kenya Barris, Julie Bean, Jenifer Rice-Genzuk Henry, Craig Doyle, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland and E. Brian Dobbins.
From executive producers Bert V. Royal and Jessica Biel, Freeform’s highly anticipated psychological thriller Cruel Summer will now debut in 2021.
Olivia Holt (Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger) returns to the network to co-star in the series.
The unconventional drama takes place over three summers in the 90s when a beautiful and popular teen goes missing, and a seemingly unrelated girl transforms from a sweet and awkward outlier to the most popular girl in town, eventually becoming the most despised person in America.
Each episode is told from alternating POVs.
The series stars Olivia Holt, Chiara Aurelia, Michael Landes, Froy Gutierrez, Harley Quinn Smith, Allius Barnes, Blake Lee and Brooklyn Sudano.
Cruel Summer comes from eOne and executive producers Bert V. Royal, with Iron Ocean Productions’ Jessica Biel and Michelle Purple.
Max Winkler directs and executive produces the pilot.
Freeform’s fan-favorite series Good Trouble, which had its season two finale in March, will return to the network next year for season three.
Starring Maia Mitchell, Cierra Ramirez, Sherry Cola, Tommy Martinez, Zuri Adele, Emma Hunton, Josh Pence and Beau Mirchoff, the series follows residents of Downtown Los Angeles’ 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.
Good Trouble is co-created by Joanna Johnson, Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg. Gregory Gugliotta, Christine Sacani, Maia Mitchell, Cierra Ramirez, Jennifer Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, and Benny Medina also serve as executive producers.
