Recently it was revealed that the popular Freeform series, “The Fosters”, would be leaving Netflix at the start of July. It had been assumed that the series would be heading to either Disney+ or Hulu.
However, in a surprise move, the show is actually now moving to Amazon Prime in the United States. With all five seasons of “The Fosters” will be available on Amazon Prime from July 6th.
The show focuses on Stef Foster and her life partner, Lena Adams, go through several ups and downs while struggling to raise their children in San Diego. The series consists of 104 episodes across 5 seasons from 2013 until 2018. It’s been available on Netflix for a few years, but originally debuted on ABC Family, before the channel was renamed Freeform.
Unfortunately, it once again looks like an “existing” contract is stopping content flowing onto Disney+ or Hulu. The show debuted in 2013 and its final episode aired in 2018, so it’s possible that Disney made the deal before their current streaming strategy. Another possiblity is that this is a last-minute deal to secure extra funds during the Coronavirus situation.
Hopefully, once it leaves Amazon, it will be heading to Hulu or Disney+, but it’s going to be longer than we had hoped.
