Switched At Birth Season 5

Switched at Birth Renewed: Season 5 Coming to ABC Family/Freeform

It’s official: Switched at Birth will be a part of Freeform.

ABC Family — which will change its name to Freeform in January — announced Wednesday that it has renewed the long-running drama for a fifth season.

And it’s a darn good thing Switched at Birth is sticking around; Monday’s season finale is full of interesting developments — in addition to a gasp-worthy cliffhanger — that beg to be explored further.

TVLine’s Cable Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect Switched‘s renewal.

    it is awesome love the show have learned sign language from the show

  2. Yay!!!I wondered of it would get renewed cause it’s soo close to 100 episodes,abcfamilys reality shows flopped& Stitchers isn’t rating well& Chasing Life got cancelled and they were in the Freeform Jan 2016 promo So happy,excited and grateful..

  3. I was a bit worried since ratings have really dropped and the network is rebranding and it’d have enough episodes for syndication

    With them changing their name to FreeForm, ABC Family probably wanted to keep some of their current shows around.As for Switched At Birth, it sounds like they’ll going to end with cliffhanger(s) on this upcoming Monday’s season finale and so the show’s producers may have known they were going to get renewed.Plus the show is only about 8 episodes of 100. However next season might be the last one.

  5. Alrisha says:

    Great!

  6. Ali says:

    Lea Thompson was on the Today Show this morning and she said they shot two different ending scenes because they didn’t know if it was renewed. Well..now that it’s renewed…bring on the cliffhanger!

  7. I am over-the-moon thrilled with the renewal of Switched at Birth. It’s my all-time favorite show. I really hope we see more of Emmett Bledsoe in Season 5.

    At least the Cable Renewal Scorecard could be updated even more!
    Because now that SaB got renewed even with more than enough episodes for syndication AND dropping ratings, the renewal for The Fosters is a sure thing!
    The Fosters has kept quite stable ratings from S1B to S3A (almost the same season finale viewer numbers) and needs another half season for syndication ;)
    So after they renewed SaB, a show with by far worse odds, the The Fosters renewal is only a matter of time.

  9. Dia says:

    I am so happy. I’ve followed this group breaking series for years and when the time comes for it to end they deserve a planned finale

  10. Lauren says:

    Awesome! Loving this season. Just wish they had renewed their other best show, Chasing Life. :( The Fosters has been losing the quality from the first few seasons. Hope it picks up again.

  11. Carla Carrera says:

    Love this show so much, wish that the raitng where higher. I dont live in USA

  12. Lizo says:

    Awesome!!! It’s one of my favourite shows

  13. Synia says:

    Yay! This is great news.
    They always leave us on a cliffhanger so I expected nothing less. I’m thinking it will probably involve Regina and her boyfriend with all the tension they’ve building about that situation, though I could be wrong. Can’t wait to watch it either way.
    My main hope for the future is that we still get to see Toby and Lily because I love their dynamic and the storyline with the baby they have going so I hope they don’t drop it.

  14. robandco says:

    Switched at Birth and The Fosters are very important shows that deal with very important issues. I am glad SaB is renewed. I just started catching up with The Fosters on Netflix and I’d like to see it renewed too.

  15. Katie Thomas says:

    This is such exciting news! We love SAB and this show definitely deserves more seasons. Can’t wait to see what Lizzy Weiss has up her sleeves for this cast!

  16. Sarah T says:

    Love SAB and so happy this got renewed. Hopefully if they decide to make the 5th season the last one ABCFam (I refuse to call them FreeForm since I think that’s still a ridiculous name) will give them enough advance notice so they can plan accordingly.

  17. Matty says:

    hope they bring back “jane by design” and “the lying game” at freeform LOL

  18. Tiffany says:

    I am obsessed with this show! I don’t know what I would do if they canceled this show, Young and Hungry, or Baby Daddy. They canceled Melissa and Joey (it was a pretty good show) and Chasing Life (which I’m highly annoyed about). I would boycott the network. I have become highly interested in ASL and have taken a desire to learn more sign language. Can’t wait for the show to return and keep them coming ABC!!

  19. Nikki Floyd says:

    Best show ever- I’ve learned sign language- very helpful with raising my own kids and dealing with everyday life- love it love it love it. Need to be incorporated into soap opera so it can always play and so we can watch the old grow up and watch their lives with their families, just like they do on the Soap’s. I just don’t want it to end.

  20. Celeste Franlin says:

    I hope ty comes back. Bay and Ty were my fav. relationship!

  23. Kavita says:
