We can't quit. We're Adams Fosters. We don't give up. We don't give in. We fight. And we have each other, we're not alone.
Callie to Mariana

DTLA[2] is the first episode of Season 1 of Good Trouble. It will on January 8, 2019. The first episode was available to stream on January 1, 2019, one week before the official premiere date.

The episode was written by Joanna Johnson, Peter Paige, and Bradley Bredeweg. It was both directed and executive produced by Jon M. Chu.


We pick up where “The Fosters” ended, 5 years in the future, with sisters Callie & Mariana graduating college and moving to downtown Los Angeles. Living with a group of friends in a community style living space, Callie and Mariana navigate the beginning of their careers — Callie clerking for a conservative judge and Mariana in the male-dominated tech space. The sisters and best friends will navigate love, sex, and the complicated relationships that come with living in a new city in your 20s.[3]
