Tom Ascheim, the ABC Family President, announced that the broadcast of the last episode of «Switched at Birth» television series would be postponed. According to his statement, the final of the current season is scheduled for December 2014 and it will be the date when the 22nd episode is broadcast.
The matter is the creators want to connect the end of the show with Christmas holidays. The experts believe such thematic idea should affect the popularity of the project and it will be the reason for its renewal for the season 4.
The financial questions haven’t been discussed yet, so we can hardly expect the return in January 2015. We will publish the ABC Family decision as soon as it is taken!
