Pretty Little Liars to End with Season Seven


BURBANK: The seventh season of the Freeform drama series Pretty Little Liars will be its last.

The series is currently in its seventh season, with the summer finale due to air tonight at 8 p.m. on Freeform. The final ten episodes of season seven will return in April 2017, and the finale will be a two-hour event.

The news that this would be the show’s last season was unveiled during a Facebook Live interview with creator and showrunner I. Marlene King and cast members Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell and Sasha Pieterse.

Like the first half, the second half of season seven will see the return of old characters such as Wren Kingston (Julian Morris), Pastor Ted Wilson (Edward Kerr), Jenna Marshall (Tammin Sursok), Paige McCullers (Lindsey Shaw) and Sydney Driscoll (Chloe Bridges). The second half of the season will also see one of the Liars get married.

“Through brilliant storytelling, compelling characters and social media phenomena, Pretty Little Liars paved the way for television shows, writers and cast to interact and engage with audiences on a national and global scale like never before, which led the series to unparalleled success,” said Karey Burke, the executive VP of programming and development at Freeform.

“It’s been an honor to work with such a talented cast and crew over the last seven years,” remarked King. “We are a family, and it will be hard to say goodbye to a show that has made such an impact on young audiences and been a mouthpiece for cultural change. I’m excited for fans to finally have all of their questions answered, and I believe they will be satisfied with the wild ride that is our last ten episodes. I am also thrilled to embark on my next endeavor, Famous In Love with Bella Thorne, and for PLL fans to get wrapped up in Paige’s rise to stardom and the pitfalls of Hollywood.”
