Mark your calendars, Pretty Little Liars fans! Season 4 is set to return on Tuesday, January 7 for its action-packed winter season, ABC announced today.

For those of you who were hoping Ezra’s reveal as “A” was just a misunderstanding, you may want to stock up on tissues because when Season 4B begins, a “dark side of Ezra emerges.” Meanwhile, the Liars go looking for answers about Alison and try to make sense of their lives for the past year.

In the Pretty Little Liars Halloween episode, we’ll finally get the answer we’ve been waiting for since the beginning of the series: Is Ali alive? And if she’s Ali, where and why has she been hiding this entire time? Could she really be afraid of Ezra?

With so many questions, we hope January 7th comes sooner rather than later. Our countdown officially begins now! (In case you were wondering, we only have 78 more days left!)

Catch the Pretty Little Liars Season 4 Halloween special on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family, followed by the series premiere of Ravenswood!
