The Fosters season 5 premiere date: When Maia Mitchell, cast return

The Fosters season 5 premiere dateWant to know The Fosters season 5 premiere date? We’re happy to have an answer for you within this article! We also anticipate this being something you’re especially in demand for as we’re writing this around the season 4 finale. Maybe you’re reading this now and are screaming at your television in the aftermath of everything that you’ve just had the opportunity to watch.

As we revealed weeks ago in our premiere guide (we keep this up-to-date as your source for when things are coming back) The Fosters season 5 is going to be coming on the air starting on Tuesday, July 11 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. (Adjust accordingly depending on your location.) The show was renewed for another season a little ways back, and we get the sense that this remains a show Freeform is committed to for the long haul. Even if it’s not their highest-rated series, it touches on important issues and features fantastic performances across the board. We’re especially going to get that from Maia Mitchell tonight as Callie contemplates her future while facing prison time.

As for what The Fosters will be paired with, Switched at Birth is ending tonight. With that, the show will help to launch a new drama entitled The Bold Type at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. It’s common strategy for Freeform or any other series to try and use established properties in an effort to help launch new hits. There’s nothing altogether unusual about what the network is trying to do here.

Will The Fosters season 5 be the final season? Hopefully not, but it’s probably wrong to start speculating on that now given that we’ve got plenty of time to touch on all of that. Specifically, you’ll have until we roll around to early next year for Freeform to make that decision. For now, just be sure to follow along with the characters’ stories and enjoy the ride, since it’s bound to be a good one.
