It was announced today what many fans of Pretty Little Liars had been suspecting for quite some time - that the the long-running mystery drama will be ending after its current season. In a Facebook live interview, creator I. Marlene King, along with the five main stars of the show, confirmed that the upcoming 10 episodes that comprise the second-half of Season 7 will conclude the series.
After tomorrow night's summer finale, PLL will be taking a mid-season break before returning in April 2017 with its final batch of episodes that King referred to as the "PLL endgame". With members of the cast calling the ending of the series "bittersweet", it was also promised that the show will be "going out with a bang" and will leave long-time fans satisfied by answering all their lingering questions.
Based on the book series of the same name, Pretty Little Liars has been extremely successful over its seven-year run. From its premiere season, the show struck a chord with ABC Family's key demographics, quickly becoming must-see television and earning the distinction of being the network's #1 series of all time. The show won numerous awards over the years, including being named as Choice TV Show in each of its seven years at the Teen Choice Awards.
