Burbank, CA (January 13, 2015) – ABC Family today announced its hit original drama series “The Fosters” will return for a third season and has picked up a new unscripted series “Job or No Job.” “The Fosters” will premiere all-new episodes from the third season on Monday, January 19, 8:00PM – 9:00PM ET/PT, picking up from the holiday episode cliffhanger.

“We are thrilled to be making more episodes of ‘The Fosters’ – a show that has not only garnered critical acclaim and numerous awards but resonates with our passionate and committed audience,” said Karey Burke, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, ABC Family. “‘Job or No Job’ is also an important addition to our growing reality slate that will appeal to anyone who has ever gone on a job interview.”

“The Fosters” is a compelling, one-hour drama about a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological teenaged kids being raised by two moms.

Recently added to the mix are their newly adopted son, Jude, and his sister, Callie, who is striving toward adoption as well despite the roadblocks caused by her tumultuous family history.
