Critic Reviews for The Fosters: Season 5

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

The Fosters ends with a warm heart, just as promised and delivered.

August 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The Fosters really does feel like it's back on track this season, for the most part. Family drama over whatever police shenanigans Callie keeps getting caught up in any day, in my opinion.

July 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The Fosters finale is just a series of will-they-or-won't-they conclusions. Plot, in this genre, is just a series of couplings and uncouplings.

June 6, 2018 | Full Review…

After all of this scarily realistic drama, it's good to know the rest of The Fosters season 5 won't be so bleak.

September 25, 2017 | Full Review…

It's clear that the show's creators have put a lot of thought into their characters, plots and messages, and that these will strike a lot of chords.

It even manages to teach us one last story about the realities of being a foster parent. It's just so, so lovely. We are not worthy.
