Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead, if you have not watched the “Pretty Little Liars” Season 7 summer finale, which aired on August 30.
“Pretty Little Liars” is known for its crazy cliffhangers, and the Season 7 summer finale was no exception, going out with a bang — literally.
Spencer (Troian Bellisario) was shot by Jenna (Tammin Sursok), and that was the least surprising part of her storyline. Turns out, Mary Drake’s (Andrea Parker) other secret child is Spencer. Or at least, Mary Drake claims to be Spencer’s mother.
“That was a huge revelation not just for Spencer, but for the Pretty Little Liars and the show and the storyline,” creator Marlene King told Variety and reporters on a conference call this morning, seemingly confirming that Mary Drake truly is Spencer’s mother. “It’s a driving engine of Spencer’s emotional story as we come back in April.”
While Spencer’s fate remains to be seen, someone »

“Pretty Little Liars” is currently in the midst of its seventh season with the midseason finale airing tomorrow night (Tuesday, 8 p.m.). The second half of the season — which will mark the final 10 episodes of the show — premieres in April 2017. Freeform has planned a special two-hour series finale for the last episode.
Last year, Variety was first to report that the show would not return for an eighth season.
“Pretty Little Liars,” which premiered in 2010, is Freeform’s top show. It catapulted the then-ABC Family network into the social media stratosphere, becoming a pop culture phenomenon for teen audiences and beyond with over 14 million Facebook followers, 3.7 million Twitter followers and 5.8 million Instagram followers.

Twisted twins and doppelgangers. Some engage in incest, others just have horrible, even life-threatening relationships.
But these relationships are always so juicy and dark because even compared to siblings, there's just a certain bond between twins that is undeniable and leads to much deeper rifts in their family fabric.
Seems like daytime soaps have an uncanny habit of revealing a shocking doppelganger.
Below, here are some of our favorite dark, deep, twisty, and puzzling twin relationships.
1. Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce - The Vampire Diaries Well, they weren't really twins, but doppelgangers are close enough, right? Dobrev did a marvelous job of separating these two, and an eventual third, Amara, but working as two different »

With only three episodes to go for the first half of “Pretty Little Liars” Season 7, the Liars need answers.
On Tuesday night’s episode, #Sparia — that’s Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Aria (Lucy Hale) — snoop around together to track down the doctor who delivered Mary Drake’s (Andrea Parker) baby years ago.
In this new clip, exclusively released by Variety, the girls go to the hospital and find that doctor’s daughter — but she’s of no help when she reveals she has not spoken to her father in years.
Also on tonight’s episode, Emily (Shay Mitchell) goes up for a position as the swim coach at Rosewood High, but learns that her ex-girlfriend Paige (Lindsey Shaw) is also up for the job. Mrs. Grunwald (Meg Foster) visits Hanna (Ashley Benson) after she has a vision that the Liars are in danger, and Ali (Sasha Pieterse) decides to go back to work.

We're still reeling from the harrowing premiere of Pretty Little Liars. As we desperately await what lies ahead, the best we can do is rack our brains for any information that might help us unravel the show's mysteries. For now, we find ourselves intensely focused on the quite peculiar Mary Drake, and her potential involvement with the anonymous "A.D.," the latest villain to mess with the liars. Back in May, we were fortunate enough to visit the set of Pretty Little Liars - we got the chance to join a group of other journalists in a group interview with Andrea Parker, the actress who plays Mary. Read on for a few perplexing quotes that will really give you something to mull over. On Mary Drake's past: "Well, I don't think that she was loved as a child.

If Season 6B of Pretty Little Liars kicked off with an unspoken ode to The Godfather: Part III, season 7, which premiered on Freeform last night, is all How To Get Away With Murder. After flashing forward a few days into the future, we’re greeted by shrieks of panic from Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Aria (Lucy Hale), as they frantically plow their shovels into the ground of a dimly lit woods. Sound familiar?
The girls are digging a grave, but it’s unclear for whom. We’re supposed to assume it’s for Hanna (Ashley Benson), but anyone who’s spent some time with Pretty Little Liars, or has an inkling about how television works, knows it’s unlikely that the beloved character would face such a callous demise. And that’s exactly the show’s problem. In its seventh — and presumably final — season, Pretty Little Liars »

“Pretty Little Liars” kicks off its seventh — and possibly final — season on Tuesday night, and one big question is on the Liars’ minds: is Hanna alive?
“The premiere episode starts with an extremely fast-ticking clock. The clock is ticking and we find out by the end of Act 1 if Hanna is dead or alive, and what her condition is — and it is very disturbing,” “Pretty Little Liars” creator Marlene King tells Variety of Ashley Benson’s character, who was kidnapped and seen unconscious in the final moments of Season 6 this spring.
Whether on not Hanna makes it out alive, King promises that the body count is higher than ever before this season.
“The stakes are the highest they’ve ever been in Rosewood, regarding the Liars and A.D./Uber A,” she says. “Because of that, there are a lot of consequences and fatalities.”
Though Freeform has not commented on the end of the series, rumors »

Just one week away from the highly anticipated premiere of Season 7, the “Pretty Little Liars” cast and creator hit the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for a spooky Freeform-a-palooza, featuring a screening of the network’s new summer series “Dead of Summer.”
Before the “Dead of Summer” screening, “Pretty Little Liars” creator I. Marlene King sat on a panel with cast members Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Sasha Pieterse, Tyler Blackburn, Andrea Parker, Keegan Allen, plus producer Charlie Craig to tease what’s to come in the new season this summer.
“There will be a proposal in the summer and a wedding when we come back in the winter,” said King, confirming that the wedding will involve one of the Liars. (Season 7 will be split up into two parts, per usual, with the first half in summer and the back-half in winter.)
King also teased that a lot of people are going to die in the upcoming season: “It will be the biggest body count we’ve ever had on a season of ‘Pretty Little Liars.'”
The elephant in the room at the “Pll” event was the fact that Season 7 could be the last. Rumors have been long been swirling that the series will end after the upcoming season with cast members saying so in various interviews, but Freeform has not confirmed the ending, only releasing a mysterious statement that reads, “This is the end of ‘Pll’ as we know it.”
Wednesday night, when asked if Season 7 is the final season, King teased, “The show is coming to a closure of sorts, and that’s all we can say for now. Everyone loves their characters and the world so we hope it continues in some way shape or form.”
Season 7 of “Pretty Little Liars” premieres on June 21 at 9 p.m. on Freeform.

One of the most uncomfortable moments from Pretty Little Liars‘ freshly wrapped sixth season… wasn’t part of the season at all.
TVLine got its collective mits on a deleted scene included in the Freeform drama’s upcoming DVD/Digital HD release of Season 6 — on sale Tuesday, April 19 — in which Hanna (almost!) overhears Alison talking some serious smack.
“If what you heard is from Hanna, it’s not true,” Ali tells Jordan when he says he “heard a lot” about Charlotte. “She didn’t know her, »
It may be hard to believe, but Pretty Little Liars‘ latest twist — namely that Alison’s new husband is working for her dead mother’s secret evil twin — could actually be a good thing, at least for a portion of the Freeform drama’s fandom.
