So is ‘Pretty Little Liars’ really coming to an end soon? Creator Marlene King did a recent interview that made it sound like season seven would be the show’s last — but don’t hang up your red coat just yet.
The identity of A may be out in the open but there’s still a lot more to come on Pretty Little Liars. The second half of Season 6 will return on Jan. 12, which goes hand in hand with ABC Family’s transition to Freeform, and many assumed since it’s five years into the future, Marlene King would end it after season seven. Plus, the rumors started circulating that she had confirmed it. So, what is she saying now?
“What I said was ‘This Uber A story that starts on January 12 will end when season 7 ends.’ I did not say PLL will end. Just sayin 4 real,” Marlene tweeted on Dec. 23. “Technically I was supposed to say “the new big bad” but let’s get real, it’s “uber A.” #whatwehavebeenwaitingfor. Goodnight my loves. Hope we cleared a few things up. Enjoy your friends and family. They r what matters most.” Catch up on Pretty Little Liars by buying the series on Amazon NOW!
The report she is speaking to comes from our sister site Variety. “I think that this story when we’re back will end next year at the at end of Season 7,” she told the publication. Of course we can see how that was taken as the show ending, but regardless, we’re just thrilled that season seven may actually not be the last — we’re still very invested in these girls’ lives. Just yesterday, ABCFamily announced the casting of Hanna (Ashley Benson)’s fiancé (sorry Haleb fans), Jordan!
Of course there has been talk of a PLL movie to come after season seven as well. “We’ve got some really big ideas for a great PLL movie, but that won’t happen right after the series ends,” Marlene said on Good Morning America’s in November. “I think we’ll take a little break and let everybody go off and do a few things and hopefully we’ll come back together again and do something really special.”
Well, that sounds good to us! What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think PLL should end after season seven?
