(from Freeform's press release, October 2017) Freeform, Disney's young adult television and streaming network, announced today that the second half of the groundbreaking family drama, "The Fosters," will return on Tuesday, Jan. 9, at 8:00 p.m. The series Vanity Fair calls "groundbreaking," and Refinery29 calls "consistently revolutionary week-in, week-out," is back for ten more episodes this winter, including a monumental 100th episode. "'The Fosters' has never shied away from tackling important social issues like immigration rights, LGBTQ rights and adoption rights," said Joanna Johnson, executive producer of "The Fosters." "We will continue to tell those important stories this season for those who too often are not heard." "The Fosters" is a compelling, one-hour drama about a multi-ethnic family mix of adopted and biological teenaged kids being raised by two moms. Stef Adams Foster, a dedicated police officer, and her wife, Lena Adams Foster, a school vice principal, have built a close-knit, loving family with Stef's biological son from a previous marriage, Brandon; their adopted twins, Mariana and Jesus; and adopted siblings Jude and his half-sister, Callie.
