Pretty Little Liars: ABC Family Series Returning January 3rd

Pretty Little LiarsLast June, ABC Family ordered 12 more episodes of Pretty Little Liars to bring the season one total to 22 installments. The first 10 episodes of the season finished airing in August and it’s now been announced that the remaining dozen will begin airing on January 3rd.

Here’s the press release…



Burbank, CA (November 17, 2010) – Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer and those around them, must deal with the aftermath of what happened in Rosewood, PA one mysterious night, in “Moments Later,” the mid-season premiere of ABC Family’s hit original series “Pretty Little Liars,” premiering Monday, January 3rd (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT).

Moments after Hanna is hit by a car, the girls’ world is turned upside down. “A” is no longer content to playing a game of cat and mouse – it has taken a far more precarious turn and now more than ever the four Pretty Little Liars have to turn to each other for support. With Hanna in the hospital and armed with the information of who “A” is, the girls are backtracking to figure out how they got to this point. How could this person know everything and want to use it against them?

Meanwhile, each girl has to also deal with a secret that is either found out, confessed or confronted – proving that secrets are still abound in Rosewood, PA.

“Pretty Little Liars” is produced by Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television and is executive produced by I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick and Leslie Morgenstein. The series stars Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Holly Marie Combs, Lucy Hale, Ian Harding, Bianca Lawson, Laura Leighton, Chad Lowe, Shay Mitchell and Sasha Pieterse. After winning three “Teen Choice Awards” this summer, “Pretty Little Liars” was just nominated for a People’s Choice Award for “Favorite TV Obsession.”

    I can’t wait for the show to return, I still am having a hard time dealing with the fact that it’s on ABC Family (lol). I am worried about the time slot, which will put the show right up against Dancing with the Stars. ABC Family stuck 10 Things I Hate About You in that slot last March and ratings dropped to a very bad low, resulting in an instant cancellation. 10 Things was ABC Family’s huge summer 2009 success and the cancellation was a complete shock. So maybe ABC Family should actually use their heads when scheduling the shows, so they don’t have to compete with too many popular shows. I think that PLL its better as a summer show, but who knows, it might do good this winter.
