The ABC Family drama will return in 2016.
October 21, 2015
ABC Family announced today that Switched at Birth has been renewed for a fifth season. The veteran drama, which continues to rank as one of the network's top-rated original series, will reach the 100-episode milestone when it returns.
Today's renewal comes ahead of the show's fourth-season finale, which airs this Monday. Look for Season 5 of Switched at Birth to premiere in 2016 under ABC Family's rebranded moniker, Freeform.
I've said this before but if this show should be on one of the big 3 networks. It's that good and deserves to be seen by just it's "market audience." Most people think that just cause it's on ABC Family, that it's for teens and dismiss it which is a shame.
