Freeform/ABC Family Sets Winter Premieres For New, Returning Shows

As ABC Family prepares for the January name change to Freeform, the network has unveiled its winter premiere dates, among them the new series Recovery Road, which bows Monday, January 25. Based on the young-adult novel by Blake Nelson, it follows a teenage girl’s struggle with addiction. After being confronted by her school guidance counselor, Maddie (Jessica Sula) is forced to choose between rehab and being expelled, and she subsequently moves into a sober-living facility while still dealing with the normal pressures of being a teenager. It stars Alexis Carra, Sebastian De Souza, Daniel Franzese, Sharon Leal, Kyla Pratt, and David Witts.

Recovery Road joins the new series Shadowhunters, based on Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series of young-adult fantasy books. The Mortal Instruments previously was adapted for film with 2013’s The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, which starred Lily Collins.

Returning from hiatus on January 25 is ABC Family/Freeform’s family drama The Fosters, currently in its third season. The show stars Teri Polo, Sherri Saum, Hayden Byerly, Noah Centineo, David Lambert, Maia Mitchell, Danny Nucci, and Cierra Ramirez.
