While fans of the famous show The Fosters are not in a good place right now as the series wraps its fifth and final season, but you don’t have to be emotional and deliver your goodbyes just yet. Though The Fosters won’t return for Season 6, it will come back this summer for a three-episode “event series,” according to the local website, offering some last-minute closure and introducing a new spinoff series.
Entertainment Weekly reported last month that the untitled Fosters spinoff will feature Fosters stars Maia Michell and Cierra Ramirez, and has been hired for 13 episodes to start.
Dates still seem not to be revealed yet as far as when exactly this three-episode event will air. But according to some of the stars’ social media accounts, finalizing the script for the show is on the way. “Our last table read & it’s starting to sink in.
Mostly feeling grateful for such a magical five and something years, I love this group of people more than anything,” Mitchell has written last month as a caption to several photos of her and her co-stars sharing set nostalgic memories.
David Lambert also shared similar pictures with Mitchell’s, posting a photo of his parking spot at the set in early February as he said his goodbyes

He said that “I will always cherish this lot,” the star wrote. “It’ll always hold a special place in my head and my heart. And I’m eternally grateful for being able to say I worked here. I could go on and say more but what’s the point. I’ll leave it at… I’ll miss this place very much.”
The synopsis of the story will be like Mariana and Callie will be older in the upcoming show, and will be going to the new location of Los Angeles, according to Deadline. “Both of them will be faced with the challenges of working in a cultural divide all the while pursuing their dreams that have been laid into those characters throughout The Fosters,” Burke said.
So we can say that the spinoff will offer longtime fans an extension of the characters they’ve come to know and love while still being different enough to please viewers who weren’t good fans or familiar with the original show.
