When Pretty Little Liars’ fourth season kicks off Tuesday, June 11, we will find the Liars right where we left them — looking shocked at whatever they’ve discovered in Wilden’s trunk. Along with that, the season premiere will also feature the reveal of the Queen of Hearts’ identity. And from there, the rest of the season is shaping up to be full of twists, turns, and threatening text messages. But one thing we can promise for season 4 is a deeper look into Toby’s past. After disappearing for much of the second half of last season, Toby is back and, »

Pretty Little Liars has now aired three seasons and fans just can’t get enough of the hit teen drama. ABC Family, the network responsible for bringing your favorite Liars to the silver screen, has announced a fifth season plus, a spin-off series set to premiere in October along with the third annual Halloween episode of Pll.
Even though the show is unorthodoxly aired in 3-parts - seasons start in June, run 12 episodes before going on hiatus, then air a single Halloween episode in October before picking back up in January and airing the remaining 11 episodes – fans remain hooked on the series, which is loosely based on the Ya books by Sara Shepard.
The show’s latest run conquered the Neilsen charts 10 weeks in a row, making it the #1 Tuesday night show among women ages 12-34. This season pulled in the highest numbers yet and the series shows no signs of slowing down. »

While the actors who portray our favorite characters get the majority of fan adoration, more and more, writers and show runners are rightfully getting their place in the spotlight. Sure, Ali Liebert brings Betty’s swagger on Bomb Girls, but writers dream up the lines that cut through us like a warm knife through maple butter. Paige McCullers would be just a footnote — a field hockey penalty — if Pretty Little Liars’ show runner hadn’t seen her potential and gone with her gut. So here’s to the writers who inspire us, and the women and men who run the show. (Thank you to all of you who tweeted me your favorites.)

It’s been more than a month since The Lying Game aired its second season finale and six months since the series wrapped production. But ABC Family is yet to make a decision on the future of the show based of Sara Shepard’s books. Complicating things is the fact that the options on the cast are up this week. I hear ABC Family asked The Lying Game producer Warner Horizon to extend the options on cast as the cable network wants to see how its summer series launch before making a decision on The Lying Game. That is easier said than done as the extension process involves a slew of actors with virtually no assurances that the extra hold will lead to a renewal. I hear all actors passed on Warner Horizon’s initial offer. I hear the efforts focused on the leads, with Alexandra Chando, now signed, and Blair Redford, »

"Pretty Little Liars" is getting a spinoff and a fifth season!
"Ravenswood" -- which comes from "Pretty Little Liars" executive producers I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick, Joseph Dougherty and Leslie Morgenstein -- will center on a town near "Pll's" Rosewood, Pennsylvania. Ravenswood "has suffered under a deadly curse for generations" and the spinoff will follow "five strangers who suddenly find themselves connected by this fatal curse and need to dig into the town's mysterious and terrible history before it's too late for each of them."
The "Pretty Little Liars" Halloween special is expected to introduce some of the "Ravenswood" characters.

Spencer comes face to face with the mysterious hooded lady in this just-released pic — but who is she?
Remember when the identity of “A” was the biggest mystery on Pretty Little Liars? One more “A,” a Black Swan and a Queen of Hearts later, there’s a new mystery in Rosewood: Who is the girl in the red coat?! If this new shot from the March 19 season finale isn’t misleading — and, let’s be fair, it could be — then Spencer (Troian Bellisario) is about to find out!
The look of shock on Spencer’s face implies she’s surprised by the girl’s identity, so let’s start guessing who she could be:
Is Alison The Girl In The Red Coat?
Alison (Sasha Pieterse) may have been buried — several times, actually — but because anything is possible in Rosewood, I could totally see Ali still being alive.
Is CeCe The Girl In The Red Coat? »
