The Fosters' Teri Polo & Sherri Saum Will Reprise Their Roles in 'Good Trouble'

Teri Polo and Sherri Saum are about to get into some Good Trouble!

The actresses, who portrayed Stef and Lena Adams Foster, respectively, on Freeform’s The Fosters, are set to reprise their roles on the spin-off series, Deadline reports.

Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) will be reuniting with their moms for two episodes in the first half of Good Trouble‘s first season.

Teri and Sherri are the first Fosters cast members who have been confirmed to guest-star on Good Trouble, though Freeform EVP Karey Burke has told the outlet, “We plan to have all characters from the original series make guest appearances.”

Good Trouble follows Callie and Mariana as they move to Los Angeles and begin their lives as young adults. Production has begun in Los Angeles for premiere in 2019.

As much as we all love the pairing of Callie and Brandon on The Fosters, they were never going to end up together at the end of the series.

Executive producer and co-showrunner Joanna Johnson opened up about just why the couple weren’t end game with TVLine.

“We decided pretty early on that we didn’t think they should be together, because we liked them better as family,” she shares. “Also, [we wanted] to respect the rules of foster care. Foster siblings cannot be involved, and we really wanted to make that message clear to people, because we do think that’s the right thing.”

“We really wanted to really end that love story and close that door, but have them really acknowledge how much they care about each other, and how they’d rather have each other in their lives forever than have some romance that could have flamed out,” she adds. “It was nice to acknowledge that, yes, there is a certain chemistry between these two, but it’s not something they’re going to ever act on again.”

Joanna adds that seeing Brandon get married to Eliza was a very different thing for Callie than it was for anyone else in the family.

For everyone in the family, it’s like, “Oh, my God, one of us is getting married already!” and for the moms, it’s like, “I can’t believe one of our children is getting married,” but for Callie, it’s a special thing. I don’t know that we had ever completely resolved their feelings in the series, in the sense that once she was adopted, Brandon had to move out for a while and go live with Mike.”

She continues, “They haven’t been living in the same house now for five years, on and off. They’ve been in college. Did that distance make them feel like, “Maybe we could be together”? They didn’t grow up together, so it’s not like it’s that strange. It could['ve] happen[ed].”

'The Fosters' Spinoff 'Good Trouble' Will Still Focus On Family, Showrunners Say

'The Fosters' Spinoff 'Good Trouble' Will Still Focus On Family, Showrunners Say

We said goodbye to The Fosters last night…however, remember, we still have the spinoff, Good Trouble!

Starring Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez, who are also serving as executive producers on the project, the series will focus on how Callie and Mariana do in the real world in Los Angeles.

“It’s going to be really good! I’m really excited about it!” Peter Paige shared with EW. “The world we’ve found for them, their jobs, the place they’re living, the people they’re surrounded with is really good. It’s a beautiful, messy, adult extension of the heart of The Fosters.”

He adds that everyone, even Beau Mirchoff‘s Jamie, have the possibility to pop up on the series.

“Part of the entire reason we wanted to do a spin-off was to keep the family alive,” Peter shares. “I know the fans are struggling, as we all are, of letting go of the show as it was, but this is what life does. You live with your family for awhile and then you move out into the world and you still have your family, you just don’t get to see them every night when you go home for dinner.”

EP Joanna Johnson spoke with Variety about the spinoff as well, saying that it will open up many more storylines.

“We think the consequences of their actions at this age are more grave than when you’re younger, so we do feel it opens [our storytelling] up,” she says. “Even with basic stuff — you can go to a bar and do the things that grownups do and it’s not an issue of ‘Oh we don’t want to promote drinking at that age.’”

She adds, “The main thing we want to bring…is that sense of heart and the sense of what is your community, what is your family [especially] when you build your own in your work community or outside of your own living family?

“The other thing is, we are of course interested in social awareness and social activism. And we think that is a very millennial thing. This Gen Z generation is more socially conscious and out there more, being provocative and wanting to change things. And I think that’s so amazing, and that’s part of what the show has always been about.”

Good Trouble will premiere in 2019 on Freeform.
