More Episodes Ordered of J.Lo's Hit TV Show 'The Fosters'

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lopez said the series was inspired by her gay aunt, who passed away from cancer.

“I had an aunt who was gay. I lived with her and I loved her,” an emotional Lopez said. “I thought of her often when I was thinking about taking on this project and the prejudices that she faced.”

The Fosters is set to return with more episodes in January 2014 following its summer season finale on Monday.
