What’s next for The Fosters? Recently, stars Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez spoke to TVLine about the end of the Freeform TV show and the series’ planned spinoff.
A family drama, The Fosters centers on an interracial lesbian couple, Stef and Lena (Teri Polo and Sherri Saum), who are raising a blended family of foster, biological, and adopted kids in San Diego. The cast also includes Hayden Byerly, Noah Centineo, David Lambert, Maia Mitchell, and Cierra Ramirez.
As reported earlier, The Fosters will end after season five but Freeform has greenlit a 13-episode spinoff series starring Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez. Speaking to TVLine, Mitchell revealed the cast only found out about the cancellation shortly before the public:
We found out a couple minutes before the [press] release came out, and it was surprisingly emotional and sad, and then exciting and also devastating.”
And what about this spinoff? Apparently, the series will follow Callie and Mariana to Los Angeles and Ramirez says it will be “different than anything we’ve ever done.”
What do you think? Do you watch The Fosters? Will you check out the spinoff series?
