The second half of season six premieres on January 12th on ABC Family’s re-branded network, Freeform.
Speaking to Variety, King said the storyline that begins in the backhalf of season six will conclude at the end of season seven. The new season picks up five years after the end of the last episode.
When asked if she was certain season seven would be the series’ last, she responded, “Correct.”
So far, Pretty Little Liars has been a stand-out hit for ABC Family. The network renewed the series for both a sixth and seventh season at the same time, and ratings for season six’s midseason finale actually grew. The episode gained a 65% growth in its 18-49 demo for its last episode, pulling in around 3.087 million viewers.
The end of the series may not be the end of Pretty Little Liars, however. Last month, King confirmed that they have ideas for a movie spin-off of the show. Though, King was quick to clarify that a movie would not happen right after the series ended. So far, no official plans for a film have been announced.
