When will Season 5b of The Fosters be on Netflix?

The final season of The Fosters will be completely streaming on Netflix by the end of 2018. The first half of season 5 is already streaming on Netflix so when will season 5b be on Netflix? We take a look below.

The family drama, which isn’t afraid of straying into controversial subjects, is back for the final time for its fifth season after debuting first in 2013 on the network which was previously known as ABC Family. It delves into themes such as race, LGBT issues and all things coming of age. It follows a family which is headed by two woman in a romantic relationship and the foster children and biological children that live in the house.

Since its inception, the show has won many awards and is one of many Freeform TV series that are currently streaming and gets frequent updates on Netflix.

Before we get into the Netflix release schedule, let’s first cover the Freeform schedule as The Fosters get split up into two halves.

Season 5a came to Netflix on October 5th, 2018. Only eight episodes made up the first half of season 5.

Netflix US Release Date for The Fosters Season 5b

The final episode of The Fosters will air on Freeform on June 6th, 2018.

Given the release date of October for part a, we’re expecting season 5b to arrive then at the very latest. With that said, when final seasons air, Netflix sometimes chooses to release the episodes earlier. In that event, we’d get the final drop of episodes during summer 2018.

Other Regions Release Schedule

The only other region to carry the show is Netflix Canada which hasn’t yet gotten the first half of The Fosters season 5. In which case, we can expect all of season 5 to be added to Netflix CA all at once. We’re thinking that it’ll be by the end of 2018.

Maybe we’ve missed your region? Let us know in the comments and we’ll look for when season 5 of The Fosters will be coming to Netflix where you live. Otherwise, let us know if you’ll be watching the show live or waiting for it to join Netflix.
