Critic Reviews for The Fosters Season 4

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

The back half of The Fosters season four has been extremely uneven.

Feb 1, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Bold, relevant, and fearlessly tackling real life, occasionally controversial, issues with grace, tact, and without being too preachy.

Jan 10, 2018 | Full Review…

The most riveting and heartbreaking episode of The Fosters to date! Season four begins with the cliffhanger with which the last season ended.
