Amid the second half of an acclaimed freshman season, following impressive ratings on its return, ABC Family’s ‘The Fosters’ will be getting its very own web series.
As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, a five-part original series titled ‘The Fosters: Girls United’ will follows those within the Girls United group home. The residence is a familiar place for those who watch the show, as it is where the character Callie, a troubled teen that was taken in by the Fosters, currently dwells.
The entire series will air on Monday, Feb. 3 at 10 p.m. EST, just following a new episode of ‘The Fosters.’ Each installment runs three to five minutes, and looks to supplement the show’s main threads while developing within its own arc and storyline when one of the girls goes missing.
Maia Mitchell will star as Callie, as she has done on the show now throughout its run, and will be joined by actresses Daffany Clark, Cherinda Kincherlow, Annamarie Kenoyer, Alicia Sixtos, Hayley Kiyoko, and Angela Gibbs.
This is a bit of familiar territory for the network, as during a break for their flagship show ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ ABC Family ran a self-contained, eight-episode web series dubbed ‘Pretty Dirty Secrets.’
The familial drama follows Stef and Lena Foster, a now-married lesbian couple as they raise a diverse household, with biological, adopted, and fostered children.
‘The Fosters’ airs Mondays at 9/8c on ABC Family.
