‘Switched at Birth’ season 5 promo: First look at January return

Let’s be honest: You’ve had to wait a long time to see “Switched at Birth” return to the air. The season 4 finale aired in October of last year, and it is going to be January before the fifth and final season comes on the air.

Luckily, Freeform as at least kind enough to recently hand down the first preview for the episodes ahead, and you can check that out below! There’s obviously going to be a time jump since Bay and Daphne are now back home after heading overseas for a stretch, and they will realize that things have changed and they may even wonder whether or not they made the right decision to come back.

In general, tests could be one of the themes of the episodes ahead, given that friendships will face challenges, relationships will have hardships, and in the end everyone is going to have to continue to grow up and learn through their mistakes. This has never been a show about perfection; not everyone does the right thing, so it’s all about bouncing back.

Hopefully, Freeform will continue to give us a steady stream of updates here and there as we get closer to the final season premiering. That should help to make the long wait a little less exhausting, and give us a few more specific things to look forward to. Given the thirty-second run time of this promo, there was only so much that could be included.
