Maia Mitchell Says 'The Fosters' Season 5 is a 'Turning Point' For Callie (Exclusive)

Maia Mitchell is giving us the goods on Callie’s journey on The Fosters this summer.

JJJ recently caught up with her about the upcoming fifth season.

“Season five is a real turning point for Callie. The situation that plays out in our premiere episode is a huge wake-up call for Callie that she can’t keep making these dangerous, impulsive decisions and it really informs her choices moving forward,” Maia told us. “You see her making huge efforts to be more grounded, she invests a lot of her energy in her art and really tries to anchor herself in that space and explore who she is as an artist. Of course it may not always work! But she’s trying.”

“As far as the family is concerned, as well-intentioned as these kids are, they attract trouble so you won’t see Stef or Lena catch a break this season,” she said.

This season also tackles a very real issue in sex trafficking.

“Sex trafficking is an issue I care about, my parents shared the research with my brother and I growing up,” Maia said. “What is particularly shocking is that the numbers are growing. Human trafficking grew 35 percent in 2017, and that’s in the United States alone so it’s a growing issue and one that is not often in the spotlight. I’m really glad our writers took the opportunity to shine a light to this issue.”

The Fosters premieres on Tuesday, July 11 at 8/7c on Freeform.

'The Fosters' Brothers Brandon & Jesus Will Still Have Trust Issues in Season 5

'The Fosters' Brothers Brandon & Jesus Will Still Have Trust Issues in Season 5

The Fosters is back in two days and JJJ can hardly wait.

While we’re all anxious to see what actually happens with Callie (Maia Mitchell), we NEED to know how Brandon (David G. Lambert) and Jesus (Noah Centineo) are ever going to get along again.

“They’re going to have their issues, for sure,” EP Joanna Johnson told TVGuide about the brothers. “We’re not just going to kiss and make up.”

It will take some time for Brandon and Jesus to actually trust each other again, it looks like.

“They’re going to go through a journey with each other of trying to regain trust,” she adds. “Again, part of Jesus’ TBI is that he doesn’t see things completely logically and maybe can’t really process things like someone without a brain injury.”

And about Jesus’ injury…it will still be a big issue that he’ll have to deal with for a long time.

“We really wanted to be true to that so he doesn’t just instantly get better,” she says. “He’s still struggling a lot. He’s not back at school yet. He’s trying to figure out what his future is. He still has trouble with these outbursts, emotionally and physically…This is something that is going to be a long-term recovery for him, and the family because it affects everyone.”

The Fosters premieres on Tuesday, July 11th @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.

Maia Mitchell is undoubtedly a really talented musician and we’ve seen that play out on The Fosters a few times.

“We’ve seen Callie dabble in music but this season her key focus is her art and applying for college,” Maia told us. “To be honest I find it very nerve racking when we shoot those music scenes so I think the writers know how I feel about that!”

We’ve got a little scoop for those Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Brandon (David Lambert) shippers.

JJJ recently caught up with Maia to find out what’s in store for them in The Fosters‘ upcoming fifth season.

“Their relationship is quite complicated so I don’t think you’re going to see them be each other’s person this season,” Maia told us. “They do have such a strong connection and understanding of each other so you will see them checking in with each other, underneath it all they still care about each other a lot.”

Do you think Callie and Brandon should end up together? Stay tuned for more from our interview with Maia!
