THE MYSTERIOUS MESSAGES FROM “A” CONTINUE FOR ARIA, EMILY, HANNA AND SPENCER IN THE MID-SEASON PREMIERE OF “PRETTY LITTLE LIARS,”
PREMIERING MONDAY, JANUARY 3RD AT 8:00 PM ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY
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.
