Pretty Little Liars 100th Episode: Norman Buckley to Direct Season 5, Episode 5
The Season 5 premiere of Pretty Little Liarshas officially wrapped, and Norman Buckley has left the gang — until Season 5, Episode 5! The frequent Pretty Little Liars director will be back for the biggest episode of them all: Pretty Little Liars’ 100th episode.
“Okay then, until next time (the 100th episode, coming up soon!) That’s a wrap on #PLL 501! Thanks to Sasha and Shay and this entire wonderful cast and crew. I love all of you!” Norman captioned a photo of Sasha Pieterse (Ali) and Shay Mitchell (Emily) cuddling up for the camera. They’re adorable!
We don’t know much about the milestone 100th episode, other than that it will apparently be directed by Norman, written by showrunner Marlene King, and will be suitably epic. Marlene told The Hollywood Reporter: "We hope that it's emotionally epic for us. There will be a big reveal: One of our mysteries that we've had for a long time on the show will be revealed in the 100th." Bring on the reveals, Pretty Little Liars.
And we’re glad to see that Norman is taking a rest after what seemed liked a thoroughly intense shoot for the Season 5 premiere. Ashley Benson (Hanna) shared this photo of the Liars asleep on one another on set, along with this caption: “17 hours with my girls @shaym@sleepinthegardn@sashapieterse27 season 5.” Seventeen hours! Norman should just sleep until its time for the 100th episode shoot.
