Freeform, formerly ABC Family, has decided to end its Peabody award-winning series Switched At Birth. The show will conclude after its upcoming fifth season, which also includes the series’ 100th episode. The 10-episode season five will end with a special 90-minute swan song.

Series creator Lizzy Weiss announced the news herself on Twitter:

Switched At Birth tells the story of two teenage girls who discover they were accidentally switched as newborns in the hospital. Bay Kennish (Vanessa Marano) grew up in a wealthy family with two parents and a brother, while Daphne Vasquez (Katie Leclerc), who lost her hearing at an early age due to a case of meningitis, grew up with a single mother in a working-class neighborhood.

It is currently unknown when the fifth and final season of Switched At Birth will premiere, other than that it will be somewhere in 2016.
