‘Switched at Birth’ to End After Fifth Season

Freeform will bring drama “Switched at Birth” to an end after its upcoming fifth season.

The Disney cabler confirmed the cancellation after creator Lizzy Weiss broke the news via Twitter.

The premiere date for season five has yet to be set. The show will have racked up 103 episodes by the close of its 10-episode final season.

The series offered a modern spin on “The Prince and the Pauper” in revolving around the blending of two families from different backgrounds after the discovery that two teenage girls were accidentally switched at birth.

Vanessa Marano, Katie LeClerc, Lucas Gabreel, Lea Thompson and Constance Marie star. The series was praised for its depiction of the deaf character played by LeClerc, and it earned a Peabody Award in 2012.

Weiss served as showrunner and exec producer with Paul Stupin and Linda Gase.
