ABC Family’s hit drama The Fosters, about a “multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids being raised by two moms,” returns with the second half of their first season tonight at 9/8c. You can catch up on everything that's happened so far in this recap video from The Hollywood Reporter, including Callie and Jude's introduction to the house, a shocking shooting, Lena and Stef's touching wedding, and Callie's surprise disappearance. Check it out below!
The series, which has already been renewed for a second season, centers around police officer Stef (Teri Polo) and her wife, school Vice Principal Lena (Sherri Saum), as they raise their diverse family. This includes Stef’s biological son from her previous marriage (Brandon), the two children they’ve adopted together (Jesus and Mariana), and the two children they want to adopt (troubled foster child Callie and her younger brother Jude). When The Fosters returns, Lena and Stef are coping with Callie's decision to run away, while Jude and Brandon feel guilt over their role in her sudden disappearance. Rosie O'Donnell will play a recurring role as a foster care system worker.
The Fosters will join several other LGBT-inclusive series on ABC Family, including Pretty Little Liars, which features out couple Emily Fields and Paige McCullers (Shay Mitchell, Lindsay Shaw). ABC Family is one of only two networks to have ever received an "excellent" score in GLAAD's Network Responsibility Index, which measures the quality and quantity of LGBT-inclusive programming on television.
