'The Fosters' Cancelled at Freeform After Five Seasons

The fate of the Fosters family has been revealed: Freeform has cancelled the long-running drama after five seasons — but the clan’s journey is far from over!

The show will wrap up Season 5 with a two-hour finale, which also will mark its 100th episode, before a three-episode summer event that will introduce a spinoff series focused around Australia's Maia Mitchell’s Callie and Cierra Ramirez’s Mariana.

The untitled offshoot is set several years in the future as Callie and Mariana begin their lives as young adults in Los Angeles. Callie will continue to be involved in social work, while Mariana will be immersed in the tech world. In addition, another member of the mothership series’ young ensemble may join the pair in LA, Deadline reports. Plus, the plan is “to have all characters from the original series make guest appearances,” Freeform’s EVP of programming and development Karey Burke told the site.

“Now that the kids are growing up, it’s time to take them out into the world, to see them make their way into adulthood, continuing their search for identity and love, and the pursuit of their dreams and purpose in this ever-changing world,” the trio said in a statement.

Thank goodness it isn't over just yet!
