Switched at Birth final season premiere date announced
The Kennish-Vasquez clan is finally ready to reunite and make its debut on Freeform.
Switched at Birth‘s fifth and final season will premiere on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017, the show’s creator, Lizzy Weiss, announced on Twitter. The series aired its season 4 finale back in October 2015 when the network was still called ABC Family. The final season will have 10 episodes, including a 90-minute finale.
“I HAVE NEWS! The 5th & final season of #SwitchedatBirth — including our 100th episode — airs Tuesday, January 24th!” Weiss wrote alongside a photo of herself with the cast and a big, “celebrating 100” cake.
Also notable in the photo is the presence of Gilles Marini, whose character, Angelo, died in a car accident in a July 2014 episode.
Freeform announced in March that Switched at Birth would be concluding. “We are ending the show after an amazing 103 episodes with pride, love, and gratitude,” Weiss tweeted at the time.
Switched at Birth stars Vanessa Marano and Katie Leclerc as the two young women who find out they were swapped as newborns. The show follows the blending of their families, played by Lucas Grabeel, Lea Thompson, D.W. Moffett, and Constance Marie.
