Though the ratings are still positive, I wouldn’t be surprised if this TV series ends with season five, and that nice 100 episode sized syndication package. Remember what happened with Switched at Birth. Although its fourth season received higher ratings than season four of The Fosters, eventually, Freeform announced that family drama would end with season five. I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens, so subscribe for free updates on The Fosters cancellation and renewal news.
1/3 update: As expected, Freeform has announced The Fosters will end with season five and a special summer “series event.” The cable network also ordered a spin-off. Details here.

The Foster series was addictive on Netflix. Please give them a second chance ! I have told several people about the series and they have started watching it on Netflix. It was such a whole hearted show that portrayed many events in so many lives.
