Fans have started the #RenewTheFosters movement on Twitter.

Fans of the groundbreaking TV show The Fosters have started a hashtag revolution on Twitter over the potential cancellation of the show. 

The Fosters, which airs on Freeform, hasn't officially been renewed by the network yet and fans are starting to panic about it. The show itself is one of the most diverse shows on television right now; it follows storylines about transgender teens issues (with transgender actors portraying those roles too), it featured the youngest on-screen same-sex kiss and it's just has an all round incredible message of love and acceptance towards all races, religions, abilities, disabilities and sexual orientations.

The show was renewed for a fifth season in January 2017 so there's still time for Freeform to confirm season six but thanks to a dip in ratings, word on the street is that it might be coming to an untimely end. 

Fans - and cast members - have started campaigning for a sixth season with the hashtag #RenewTheFosters, sharing why the show is so important for representation and visibility of so many underrepresented groups on TV and in the media.
