Production on Season 5 of Freeform’s “Good Trouble” series was halted today due to WGA picketing.
The series was shooting on location in Agua Dulce, north of Los Angeles, when IATSE and Teamsters refused to cross the picket line. It was an early-morning start, and we hear that picketing began around 4 a.m. and the set was closed around 9:30 a.m., Deadline reports.
Additional sources tell Deadline production on “Good Trouble” is set to run until around June and the WGA picketers are determined to hold the line as long as they need to. The outlet hears Freeform intends to continue production to complete the season.
“Good Trouble” follows the residents of downtown Los Angeles’ The Coterie as they juggle career, love and friendship and learn that standing up for what you believe in requires making a little noise and getting into trouble.
In Season 5, the roommates will face their toughest obstacles yet as they’re confronted with evolving relationship challenges and new career opportunities. Through highs and lows, romance and heartbreak, The Coterie crew will lean on each other while they navigate the next stage of adulthood.
The series stars Cierra Ramirez, Zuri Adele, Sherry Cola, Tommy Martinez, Hunton, Josh Pence, Beau Mirchoff, Bryan Craig and Priscilla Quintana.
The show is produced by Nuyorican Productions, Inc. in association with Freeform. Jon M. Chu (“Crazy Rich Asians”) will direct and executive produce the first episode.
Previous seasons of “Good Trouble” are available to stream now on Hulu in the US and on Disney+ in many countries, including Australia, the United Kingdom and Canada.
