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?
