Tom Ascheim, president, ABC Family, and Kate Juergens, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development and Chief Creative Officer, ABC Family, have announced that the network has picked up two more seasons of its longest-running original hit series, “Pretty Little Liars,” from Warner Horizon Television. Season six is set to air mid-2015, and season seven is set to air mid-2016.
“‘Pretty Little Liars’ has taken its place in the zeitgeist and reigns supreme in pop culture,” said Ascheim. “I am glad to bring another two seasons to our audience because ‘A’ has a lot in store for our Liars.”
The season 5 premiere of “Pretty Little Liars,” which aired last night, picked up where the season four finale left off, with Aria and the Liars reeling from Ezra’s shooting at the hands of “A.” The five girls quickly realize that as the one person who truly knows “A’s” identity, Ezra is in grave danger. While Aria stands watch over Ezra at the hospital, Alison and the PLLs lay a trap to finally flush out “A” and are shocked by who is ensnared.
Meanwhile, Detective Holbrook steps up his efforts to find the girls and puts the Hastings family on alert. And as news of Alison’s “resurrection” spreads, Mona is not pleased.
“Pretty Little Liars” is produced by Alloy Entertainment, Gaslight Productions and Russian Hill Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television, and is executive produced by I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick, Leslie Morgenstein and Joseph Dougherty. The series stars Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Tyler Blackburn, Lucy Hale, Ian Harding, Laura Leighton, Shay Mitchell, Janel Parrish and Sasha Pieterse.
