Rosie O'Donnell Returning to 'The Fosters' for 2 Episodes in Early 2015


Emmy Award-winning comedian, host, and actor Rosie O'Donnell will return to guest star in more episodes of ABC Family's hit drama series The Fosters. O'Donnell's character, Rita Henricks, a tough yet compassionate foster care group home caregiver, was introduced in the first season of the critically-acclaimed series. She will appear in two episodes to air in early 2015.

Currently in its second season, The Fosters is a compelling, one-hour drama about a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids being raised by two moms. Stef Adams Foster, a dedicated police officer, and her wife, Lena Adams Foster, a school Vice Principal, have built a close-knit, loving family with Stef’s biological son from a previous marriage, Brandon, and their adopted twins, Mariana and Jesus. Recently added to the mix is their newly adopted son, Jude, and his sister, Callie, who is striving toward adoption as well despite the roadblocks caused by her tumultuous family history.

In September, O'Donnell made her return to daytime and The View where she can be seen weekdays on ABC.

The Fosters stars Teri Polo as Stef Adams Foster, Sherri Saum as Lena Adams Foster, Jake T. Austin as Jesus Adams Foster, Hayden Byerly as Jude Adams Foster, David Lambert as Brandon Adams Foster, Maia Mitchell as Callie Jacob, Danny Nucci as Mike Foster and Cierra Ramirez as Mariana Adams Foster.
