'The Fosters' To End After Season 5

It is being reported that The Fosters will be coming to an end after its current fifth season - but not before a newly-ordered special three-part finale event that will air this summer.

And while the show is coming to a close, fans will be pleased to learn that the stories of at least two of its characters will continue in an upcoming spin-off series. Freeform has ordered 13 episodes for an untitled drama that will follow the lives of Callie and Mariana several years into the future. This summer's three-episode Fosters finale will reportedly lay the groundwork for this new spin-off.
For now, the back half of The Fosters' fifth and final season is slated to premiere on January 9. Look for the two-hour Season 5 finale this spring, followed by the special three-part finale event this summer.

The Fosters Renewed For Season 5

Freeform announced today that The Fosters has been renewed for a fifth season. The good news comes midway though Season 4 of the veteran drama and promises to take it past the 100-episode milestone.
The Fosters premiered in 2013, back when Freeform was known as ABC Family. It didn't take long for the show to become a hit with viewers, who were drawn into its storyline of an interracial lesbian couple raising a mix of foster and biological children. Even with its viewership easing off a little this season, The Fosters still ranks as cable's strongest-performing scripted series in its time slot among total viewers and in key demographics.
Look for the second half of Season 4 to resume on January 31, with Season 5 likely premiering around the summer.
