Two major events are coming to Freeform this spring, one exciting and one a little bittersweet. Freeform’s iconic social-media team will be in full-swing over the next few months promoting the premiere of the final season of “Pretty Little Liars,” and the series premiere of Bell Thorne’s new series “Famous in Love”.
The network confirmed today that “Pretty Little Liars” will premiere its final season on April 18, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. EDT, followed by the premiere of the new original series “Famous in Love” at 9:00 p.m. EDT.
To commemorate the series, Freeform will be launching a 150-day countdown to the final season of “Pretty Little Liars” starting on Saturday, November 19. Each day, Freeform will be releasing a clip from the previously aired 150 episodes in chronological order to mark the highly anticipated final season. In tandem with these clips, other celebratory content will be released daily across social accounts and PLLTV.com, including episodic photos, graphics featuring every message from “A,” and goodbye messages from the cast, all leading up to the #PLLEndGame.
The final season of “Pretty Little Liars” will continue to be filled with homecomings and reunions, bringing back old characters as it has already done in the first half of the season, including Wren Kingston (Julian Morris), Pastor Ted Wilson (Edward Kerr), Jenna Marshall (Tammin Sursok), Paige McCullers (Lindsey Shaw), Sydney Driscoll (Chloe Bridges), Melissa Hastings (Torrey DeVitto) and Charlotte DiLaurentis (Vanessa Ray). A #PLLWedding for one of the Liars is also in store for the latter half of the season. To conclude the series, the season seven finale will be a two-hour, drama-filled episode followed by a one-hour tell-all special featuring Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Sasha Pieterse and I. Marlene King.
Based on the novel by Rebecca Serle published by Little, Brown and Company, “Famous In Love” follows ordinary college student Paige (Bella Thorne) as she gets her big break after auditioning for the starring role in a Hollywood blockbuster. She must now navigate her new star-studded life and the highs and lows that come with being the new It Girl in town as well as balancing her college workload. As her public profile continues to rise and the undeniable chemistry with her new co-star and Hollywood heartthrob Rainer Devon grows, the more her friendships are strained with her two best friends – particularly Jake who may be more than just her friend.
