ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars will be kicking off its fifth season on June 10, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT, but even before it debuts the network’s decided it wants even more of the teen drama. Pretty Little Liars will be returning for a sixth and seventh season as just announced by Tom Ascheim, president, ABC Family, and Kate Juergens, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development and Chief Creative Officer. The decision likely wasn’t a difficult one for the ABC Family executives as PLL is the network’s #1 series, drawing in 3.8 million total viewers. It’s also the most tweeted about scripted series off all time, according to ABC Family.
Season six will kick off in mid-2015 followed by season seven in 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 returning cast includes Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Tyler Blackburn, Lucy Hale, Ian Harding, Laura Leighton, Shay Mitchell, Janel Parrish and Sasha Pieterse.
Here’s the scoop on season five’s first episode:
“Moments after where the season four finale left off, Aria and the Liars are 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’ but are shocked by who is ensnared. Meanwhile, 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.”
