ABC Family is keeping “The Fosters” around for another season.
Even before the final 10 episodes of the show’s first season bow in January, the network has opted to renew the show for a second season, according to “The Hollywood Reporter.”
“‘The Fosters’ has demonstrated its ability to build an audience, and the creative team’s compelling storytelling assures us that there will be more growth in upcoming seasons,” says the network’s executive VP of programming.
The series stars Teri Polo (“Meet the Parents”) and Sherri Saum (“Gossip Girl”) as a lesbian couple and their blended family, including Stef’s (Polo) biological son, adopted twins and the two new additions to their family.
In the January episodes, Rosie O’Donnell is set for a recurring role as “a tough yet compassionate woman who works for the foster care system and becomes a mentor to a member of the Foster family.”
ABC’s slate also includes the October premiere of “Ravenswood,” as well as 2014 returns for “Pretty Little Liars,” “Twisted,” “Switched at Birth,” “Melissa & Joey,” “Baby Daddy” and new series “Chasing Life.”
