We have been following The Fosters since its inception, all the way back in 2013. This is a show that reveals the raw, authentic, family life between a female LGBT/interracial couple and their adopted, foster and biological kids.
Deadline announced that Freeform’s celebrated family drama series The Fosters will be ending its run after five seasons but not before a final three-episode installment to air next summer. Afterward, this will introduce a spinoff series star both Cierra Ramirez and Maia Mitchell.
Set several years in the future, it will follow the lives of their characters, Callie (Mitchell) and Mariana (Ramirez), as they embark on the next phase of their young adult lives.
After season four’s disappointment, there was an inkling that season five would not happen. But since it is finally happening, we’re excited to see what will happen next. However, this new news of this inspirational family drama ending at season five, but to come back with a spinoff starring Mitchell and Ramirez, is both sad and hopeful at the same time. It would be interesting to see how Callie and Mariana will favor with growing up out of high school, away from the family drama, and starting off on their own. Will they be living together, going to college? Getting into relationships or living the single life? Only time will tell.
The Fosters‘ season 5B premieres on January 9 at 8/7c.
