What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on Freeform, The Fosters follows dedicated police officer, Stef Foster (Teri Polo), and school administrator, Lena Adams (Sherri Saum). An interracial lesbian couple, Stef and Lena are raising a blended family of foster, biological, and adopted kids, in San Diego. The TV show’s cast also includes Hayden Byerly, Noah Centineo, David Lambert, Maia Mitchell, Danny Nucci, and Cierra Ramirez.
Season Four Ratings
The fourth season of The Fosters averaged a 0.34 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 804,000 viewers. Compared to season three, that’s down by 16% in the demo and down by 20% in viewers. Learn how The Fosters stacks up against the other Freeform TV shows.
Since it is one of the cable channel’s stronger shows, it comes as little surprise that Freeform renewed The Fosters for a fifth season. One hundred episodes is a good sized package to sell in syndication.
Still, I don’t think fans should be too surprised if season five ends up being the final season. Remember the fate of Switched at Birth. While its fourth season received higher ratings than current season averages for The Fosters, eventually, Freeform confirmed season five would spell the end of that family drama. We’ll have to wait and see how The Fosters’ story unfolds.
