“We have so many more stories to tell about ‘The Fosters’ family – these incredible characters have come into our lives and touched so many – from Stef and Lena’s wedding to the adoptions of Callie and Jude.” said Karey Burke, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, ABC Family. “We look forward to more of the groundbreaking storytelling from this creative team.”
