Season 4 of Freeform’s drama “The Fosters” will be off to a thrilling start, one that leads the school to go into a lockdown when Nick (Louis Hunter) seemingly threatens some students.
Following what transpired during the season 3 finale Nick saw Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) kissing Mat (Jordan Rodrigues) Nick will go to a meltdown and brings a gun to the school when he realizes that the two may be back together.
Talking to TV Guide, executive producer Joanna Johnson shared that the first two episodes will have a different look and feel, “We’re trying to push the envelope of the vibe of our show. It’s very intense and dramatic and I’m really proud of these episodes.”
She also noted that the premiere installment somehow relates to the instances involving guns and school in real life scenario, “It’s really pretty harrowing. It’s something that’s happening so much it’s almost becoming normal. It almost seems like a weekly occurrence that someone is taking a gun to school. We wanted to explore what the impact of this has on our schools and has on our kids,” she added.
According to Cartermatt, although the students are given the all clear to head home, tensions will be still running high especially in the Adams Foster household. “Fragile and skittish from the school lockdown, the family sticks close, but their secrets keep them apart,” the synopsis reads.
It turns out that Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Brandon (David Lambert) will be anxiously waiting for their moms to address their behavior in Idyllwild and what happened to the latter before they adopted him. It appears that they still do not know how they are going to handle the matter.
Meanwhile, Stef (Teri Polo) warns everyone to disconnect to the internet and stay off their phones and computers because of the rumors swirling around their family. Elsewhere, Brandon will help Cortney (Denyse Tontz). What could be a harmless act will lead to a major blowup between him and Stef.
“The Foster” season 4 is slated to premiere on Monday, June 20 at 8 p.m. ET.
