RENEWED – Switched At Birth – Season 5
ABC Family have renewed their drama series Switched At Birth for a fifth season.
The renewal news comes just before their fourth season finale on October 26th.
The fourth season has only averaged just over 1 million viewers, but ABC Family (which will be rebranded to Freeform in 2016) sees a future for the drama series.
The fifth season renewal will take the drama through over 100 episodes which will make a nice syndication package.
Switched at Birth follows the lives of two teenage girls after it’s discovered that they ended up with the others’ families as babies at the hospital. The cast includes Vanessa Marano, Katie Leclerc, Lea Thompson, Constance Marie, Sean Berdy, D.W. Moffett, Lucas Grabeel, and Giles Marini.
