During the SAB panel earlier this morning (Friday, January 11), it was announced that an all ASL (American Sign Language) episode will be airing in March.
The storyline puts the audience in the middle of a student uprising in which the very essence of their deaf identity is at stake and will feature open captions for hearing viewers.
“I’ve been wanting to do an all-ASL episode since the series began, and the storyline we’ve been focusing on this season gave us the perfect opportunity. It’s an exciting, visual, empowering story of kids who are different fighting back, and it allows our audience to experience the world as our deaf characters do. We’ve been building to this for 39 episodes and we’re all thrilled to be the first to try this,” series creator and executive producer Lizzy Weiss shared.

There’s just one more day until the second season premiere of Switched At Birth.
On the relationship between Daphne and Bay: “We were so happy, Katie and I, because last season, it was pretty strong. We were friends, and that had never happened before! The last 10 episodes were like a big friendship. That may not be the case as this season continues. There’s definitely a bit of tension between them.”
On still preferring Daphne and Emmett together: “That’s 100 percent still the case. I don’t know how Katie can still like Bay and Emmett together. I’m like the only person in America who shares this belief that Bay and Emmett should not get back together, because he cheated on her and that’s awful. But I’m the only one – cast [and] crew included and people who watch the show. So I stand alone pretty much.”
On Bay and Angelo’s relationship: “Yeah. It’s kind of all over the map, specifically because of that baby-mama drama. And Regina’s relationship with him [is] even more unstable. In fact, I’d say Regina’s actually the most unstable this season… Because of all the things going on with Regina – and there’s a lot of things going on with Regina – she’s having a difficult time with everybody, Bay included.”
On Bay leaving her rebel-ness behind: “Weirdly enough, Bay’s not the rebellious one this [season] at all, which is very different because Bay, as you know, is usually the more difficult of all the Switched at Birth characters. [Laughs] She and John Kennish probably are the most stubborn and set in their ways and don’t bend on anything, ironically enough. But she’s totally over it now… She’s studying. She’s listening to her parents. She’s being a good kid this season. But we’ll see how long that lasts.”
Switched at Birth premieres TOMORROW, Monday, January 7th @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
