Maia Mitchell Teases That The 'Fosters' Spinoff Will Be The 'Same, But Different'

After news about The Fosters cancellation earlier this month, all we wanted to do was scream at Freeform for that decision — however, we’re still excited about the spinoff coming with Callie and Mariana.

“We found out a couple minutes before the [press] release came out, and it was surprisingly emotional and sad, and then exciting and also devastating,” Maia Mitchell shared with TVLine about how they heard about the news.

However, they’re still looking forward to what the spinoff would bring for the sisters.

“There are going to be appearances from all your Fosters favorites, so it’s not just going to be our show,” Maia promises. “There are going to be new series regulars and new characters, and still the same amount of representation as we’ve had on The Fosters, and the same topics. It’s [the] same but different.”

And as for that other cast member joining the show — while Hayden Byerly didn’t confirm it was Jude, we’re still hoping.

“I would imagine so [that he'd join them sometime]. It’s the two girls on their own. But the great thing is, throughout your life, you do still have your family, whether they’re a voice in the back of your head…It’s someone that’s always influential in your life, always kind of there when you need them to be.”

Hayden adds that “everyone on the show is super excited and super stoked for the new beginnings and the new happenings that are going to continue on. Because while it’s the end of the Fosters family, this is the new beginning of The Fosters. This is just a little segment of that, and it’s incredible, and we’re all really excited for it.”
