Based on her conversation with her employer Judge Curtis Wilson (Roger Bart), Callie appears to be on the verge of departing from her clerk job upon the conclusion of “Good Trouble” Season 3, bringing some long-desired change to her life. While this likely means Callie’s career won’t resemble her work for Judge Wilson come Season 4, Callie’s new path in life will not mark the departure of the character altogether.
In an interview with Hollywood Life, executive producer Joanna Johnson was coy about Callie’s role come Season 4. “We’ll just have to see,” she said, in response to a question about whether or not Season 3’s cliffhanger ending means Callie is leaving LA. “It’s a cliff for a good reason.” That said, Johnson then confirmed that, whether not Callie moves cities, Maia Mitchell return no matter what. “We will see Maia Mitchell, yeah,” Johnson said.
Further confirming her return, Mitchell tweeted a promotional image for “Good Trouble” Season 4, featuring her likeness, with the caption “time to pack my bags I guess.” Mitchell is Australian (via Rotten Tomatoes), so she appears to be implying that the filming of Season 4 will necessitate her travelling to the US. How Maia’s life will change following her expected resignation from her post with Judge Wilson should be revealed upon the premiere of “Good Trouble” Season 4, on a date that has yet to be announced.
