Credit: ABC Family Photo: Pretty Little Liars Season 5 Poster

Well, it was nice while it lasted, but “A” is back in the Pretty Little Liars lives, and ABC Family has the promo poster to prove it. Check it out!

The Season 5 poster is seriously spooky. It features the Liars’ faces — including Ali’s — on a black background. The top of the image shows the Rosewood woods, and a blood red “A” cuts through the center of it all. Interestingly enough, while the core four occupy a place around the blackened border of the poster, Ali’s face is completely within the “A”. Clue that Ali may be the mysterious villainess or merely confirmation that she will always be one of “A”’s main targets? We will have to watch Season 5 to find out.

Though the return of “A” wasn’t officially confirmed on the show, the text all of the Liars received at the end of the most recent episode and the epilogue featuring a black-hooded figure, implied the villainess is back in business. “A” celebrated her return with quite the fireworks show, blowing up Toby’s house while the Liars and their loved ones were next door. If this is how “A” is starting off her reign of terror in Season 5, then we can only imagine where it will end. The Liars may be in more danger than ever before. 


What do you think of the promo poster? Do you think it’s significant that Ali is featured as part of the “A”? Sound off in the comments below!
