    "Good Trouble" Has Officially Been Renewed For Season 4, And Here's Some Inside Scoop On What To Expect Next Season

    "There are so many questions and ways to go with it."

    Warning: There are MASSIVE spoilers ahead for Good Trouble, including the Season 3 finale.

    Good Trouble Season 3 just came to an end, and honestly, it was one hell of a ride.

    The season finale featured several cliffhangers, including Callie questioning her career choices, Evan betraying Mariana, Davia deciding between Dennis and Matt, and much more.

    So, to celebrate Season 3 AND Good Trouble being renewed for Season 4, showrunner Joanna Johnson sat down with us to dive into everything from the finale and tease what to expect next season. Here's everything we learned:

    1. First, Joanna "loved" writing the final scene between Callie and Judge Wilson, and that moment will lead to a lot of changes for Callie in Season 4.

    2. After coming up with Kathleen Gale, Joanna knew that Constance Zimmer was perfect for the job — she even told Constance that she is one of "the bravest actors" she knows.

    3. With the introduction of Kathleen, Joanna said she really wanted to bring in a "female mentor" for Callie but also a character who helped Callie realize that no one "lives a perfect life."

    4. Constance Zimmer and Maia Mitchell helped "elevate" each other's performances during Good Trouble Season 3, and the mentor relationship will help push Callie's story forward in Season 4.

    5. The Season 3 finale ends on several cliffhangers, one of them being that we don't know the outcome of Kathleen and Callie's case, and that was intentional.

    6. One of the things Good Trouble wanted to show this season was Mariana struggling, which is something we haven't really seen since The Fosters.

    7. And Season 4 will dive into Evan and Mariana's complicated relationship, Evan's betrayal, and if Mariana could be with Evan without losing her friends.

    8. Joanna had a pregnancy storyline in mind for a while, and Priscilla Quintana returning as Isabella in Season 3 proved to be the perfect time to tell it.

    9. One thing Good Trouble wanted to explore was what happens when you get pregnant alongside "a stranger" and someone you were never in a relationship with.

    10. And Joanna loved "redeeming Isabella, but also having her keep [the audience] on edge," and her relationship with Gael will continue to unfold more in Season 4, especially now that Callie and Gael have called it quits.

    11. Davia and Dennis weren't originally planned to be love interests when Good Trouble began, but Emma Hunton and Josh Pence's chemistry changed all that.

    12. Also, putting Davia and Dennis in a love triangle with Matt this season allowed the show to explore even more with those characters.

    Dennis telling Davia, "I realized I've been an idiot. I didn't need to leave the best thing in my life to find some light. You are my light"

    13. One of the reasons for keeping Davia and Dennis romantically apart in Season 3 was so that Dennis could "choose to live again" and feel comfortable finding joy with Davia.

    14. And if you're like me and you're dying to know what happens with Davia and Dennis next, the resolution to the Season 3 finale cliffhanger with them has already been filmed.

    15. Alice's diversity comedy troupe storyline was one of Joanna's favorites, and it helped continue to show how Good Trouble talks about social issues not a lot of other shows discuss.

    16. In fact, during the Lunar New Year episode, Sherry and Kara Wang consulted on the episode, and Sherry was able to make Alice's speech very personal.

    Alice saying how she's proud to be Chinese and proud to be able to call all of her friends "family"

    17. And finally, Malika's sexuality storyline in Season 3 allowed the character to grow past just being an activist.
