Pretty Little Liars: Season Seven Ratings

22 June 2016 7:37 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Freeform hasn't announced it yet, but the unofficial consensus seems to be that there won't be an eighth season of Pretty Little Liars -- even though the show still has the best ratings on the cable channel. Could the show be renewed, possibly with a new cast? Stay tuned.

Pretty Little Liars continues to revolve around a group of young ladies from the little town of Rosewood, Pa who have plenty of secrets. The show's cast includes Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Sasha Pieterse, Ian Harding, Janel Parrish, Tyler Blackburn, Laura Leighton, Keegan Allen, Huw Collins, Drew Van Acker, Roberto Aguire, David Coussins, Nicholas Gonzalez, and Nia Peeples.

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Falls To Season Premiere Viewership Low

22 June 2016 2:29 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The return of Pretty Little Liars last night with the search for Ashley Benson's kidnapped Hanna in full swing as a 24-hour deadline, killing, some texts and an escape propelled the Freeform show. With all the action on-screen for the Season 7 debut of Ppl, the I. Marlene King created series hit new premiere lows. No longer topping cable as in past years, thanks to the Oprah-starring Greenleaf, Pretty Little Liars snared 1.42 million viewers and 847,000 among adults 18-49… »

Pretty Little Liars Season 7A Review

22 June 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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’ Creator Teases Hanna’s Possible ‘Demise,’ Says Season 8 May Happen

21 June 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Freeform released the key art for Season 7 of “Pretty Little Liars,” fans were shocked to see one face missing: Ashley Benson’s. The promotional material for Season 7 prominently features the other four main cast members — Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Troian Bellisario and Sasha Pieterse — so Benson’s absence seemed to suggest that her character’s current situation in the teen mystery/thriller might be more dire than fans had previously assumed. “People weren’t taking the idea of Hanna possibly meeting her demise as seriously as they should until they saw that image,” executive producer I. Marlene King said in an. »

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Season 7: Marlene King Talks Returning Characters, Potential Deaths and a Marriage Proposal

21 June 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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 »

Hanna Marin is in grave danger on Pretty Little Liars. As a refresher, the end of the season six finale left us all in shock as "A.D." drags an unconscious Hanna across the floor in some undisclosed location.

Where Is Ashley Benson in Pretty Little Liars' Mysterious Season 7 Poster?

Hanna, you in danger, girl! The dark and mysterious new poster for Pretty Little Liars season seven was revealed piece by piece on the show's Instagram account today, and there is one very important person missing from the line-up: Ashley Benson. As we know, Benson's Hanna was kidnapped in the season six finale—and she's nowhere to be found in the ultra glam, ultra gorgeous, ultra leggy new key art. Instead, Sasha Pieterse, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell and Troian Bellisario are looking fierce as hell decked out in all black errythang, sky-high stilettos included, with a little mesh and lace and tulle thrown in for good measure.

TV Shows to Watch If You Miss Classic '90s Teen Movies

19 May 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ahhh. The glory days of teen movies ... The '90s. You know, the ones where all you had to do was take off the she-geek's glasses and she was gorgeous (like in "She's All That" starring Rachel Leigh Cook and Freddie Prinze Jr). What about such classics as "Never Been Kissed" with Drew Barrymore essentially getting to redo high school with much better results? Even "The Craft" is a pretty huge classic '90s teen movie that people still watch to this day.

The magic of those classic '90s movies hasn't been lost on the youth of today. No way. In fact, one might say that the classic '90s teen movies have evolved and turned into the plethora of incredible television shows currently on TV today. There are so many amazing television shows from "Game of Thrones" to "Broad City" to, well, just about everything. However, when that »

You're Doing It Wrong: A Lesson in Summer Highlights

26 April 2016 3:32 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Whether or not you live among the celebs in Los Angeles, you want to at least look like you've been basking in the sunshine this summer. However, when comes to lightening your locks the right way for summer, less is actually more. Sure, we've broken down the different coloring techniques before (yes, there is a difference between balayage and flamboyage), and while that's all fine and good, summer-specific hair is less strategic (but still purposeful). To achieve a sunny SoCal-girl vibe, like Behati Prinsloo and Ashley Benson, you want to lift your color ever-so-slightly for a lived-in look that's stunning, but easy on the upkeep. To start, "go a shade lighter to match the spirit of the »
