ABC Family isn’t waiting to renew The Fosters, their freshman family drama. They’ve picked it up for a second season while production of the first season is still underway.
The Fosters follows the lives of same-sex domestic partners in San Diego as they raise five children, one biological son, adopted twins, and a foster brother and sister. The cast includes Teri Polo, Sherri Saum, Jake T. Austin, Hayden Byerly, David Lambert, Maia Mitchell, Danny Nucci, and Cierra Ramirez.
The drama previewed in March and then started airing regularly in June. The episodes performed well enough for ABC Family to order an additional 10 episodes, bringing the first season total to 20.
The initial 10 episodes averaged 1.74 million viewers. The second set will start airing in January 2014 with season two expected sometime later next year.
What do you think? Do you like The Fosters? Are you glad to hear that there are a lot more new episodes ahead?

I also raised kids under the guardianship program that is within the foster care system and believe me they don’t give much for clothing so if the child is lucky and… Read more »

OMG this is one of the best shows I have ever seen. What a great storyline not only for Foster Kids but for atomic families of this generation. My own mother and uncle went through the foster system and had crazy experiences during their time in the system. Their own mother tried to kill them, their father did not want them and they were placed in a orphanage. My uncle who was a baby was fostered right away. However my mother faced hell. In and out of the orphanage /foster care until 3 years in when the foster parents who… Read more »
