Freeform has renewed Good Trouble for a second season! What do fans want to see in Season 2?

Good news, Good Trouble fans! Today, the president of Freeform, Tom Ascheim, surprised the cast by giving out the news of a second season renewal. I’m not going to lie, I’m kind of surprised Good Trouble received a season renewal this early. It is only Freeform’s #7 in total viewership. It has an average total of 0.346 million viewership. For the 18-49 demographic, it is the #6 the network with an average of 0.16.

The first season of The Fosters averaged 0.64 for the 18-49 demo and 1.68 million for total viewership. That’s quite a dramatic decrease for the spin-off, especially that The Fosters mostly aired at 9 p.m. on Mondays, while the spin-off airs at 8 p.m. on Tuesdays.

So far, the show is good and it’s living up to expectations of The Fosters, but as with all shows, you want stuff that the writers and producers can fix.

Now that we’re having a second season, here are some things that I would like to see in the upcoming season…

Bring back linear fashion: Sorry, not sorry! I do not like these flashback moments. One of the executive producers of Good Trouble, Joanna Johnson, told Variety last month:

"Additionally, the storytelling on “Good Trouble” is not told in a completely linear fashion, instead using certain lines of dialogue to trigger flashback moments for the characters, offering more insight into certain relationships for the audience."

I’m not a fan of it. Fans are commenting on social media that the show seems jumpy and the show should be in chronological order. I may have to agree there. I enjoyed watching The Fosters as it was simple. You were able to understand everything as it was in chronological order, and nothing confused you.

Less sex/nudity scenes: So far, this is slowly cooling off, and I’m happy about that. Sure Callie and Mariana are young adults and the writers are writing what happens in real life, but at the same time, give them more storylines about real topics. The last few episodes are about the shooting case of Jamal Thompson, which is great. It will be amazing if it keeps heading in this direction.

Bring in Lena and Stef frequently: What made The Fosters so special? The moms. Lena and Stef were absolutely incredible as the parents of the children, and they were the foundation of the show. The creators of both The Fosters and Good Trouble should bring back Lena and Stef more often.

In the real world, everyone needs their mom. The writers could have Callie and Mariana Skype or Facetime Lena and Stef if they can’t see their children. There are many ways to incorporate the moms, especially in today’s world with all the technology available.

Bringing Stef and Lena will also no doubt bring in higher ratings. Teri Polo (Stef) and Sherri Saum (Lena) are both not busy, so this is a perfect opportunity for the writers to explore storylines with Callie, Mariana, and their moms.

Stef, Lena and Malika: Stef and Lena could be mother figures to Malika as Malika’s mother, unfortunately, this isn’t important to her anymore (for some reason). Her mother is sick, and Malika won’t even go see her, even after Malika’s brother, Dom, told her that their mother is sick and to go see her. The writers could explore storylines with this.

We see Stef and Lena return on tonight’s all-new episode of Good Trouble, so maybe we’ll see a foreshadowing of what will happen. There are still eight episodes left to air, so some of these things that I want changed may happen sooner, rather than later. We’re not sure how many episodes Freedom ordered for the second season of Good Trouble, but we’ll let you know once we do!

Also, Good Trouble has a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Isn’t that just incredible?

An all-new episode of Good Trouble premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on Freeform.
