‘The Fosters’: Spend a Day on Set With Maia Mitchell

When we last saw Maia Mitchell on The Fosters, her character, Callie Adams-Foster, was left hanging in an extremely dire situation. Now, just ahead of the fifth season of the Freeform family drama, we’re happy to report things are looking better for the actress — at least until that dark cliffhanger picks up next month.

On the cast’s last day of shooting the first half of Season 5, Mitchell hijacked our Instagram account to bring us snaps from The Fosters hair and makeup chair and an inside peek at her backstage antics with co-stars Noah Centineo and Cierra Ramirez. The actress also showed off her dream ride to work and her sweet wrap gifts (a big bunch of flowers and an even bigger bottle of bubbly) before turning the camera on the behind-the-scenes Fosters crew. Scroll through to see all of Maia Mitchell’s photos from The Fosters set.

The Fosters returns for Season 5 on Tuesday, July 11 at 8 p.m. on Freeform.
