Do you never want to see Pretty Little Liars end? Well, your wish just came two seasons closer to coming true, because the addictive teen murder mystery has been renewed for Seasons 6 and 7!
ABC Family announced the good news in a press release, saying simply that "the network has picked up an unprecedented two seasons of its longest-running original hit series Pretty Little Liars." As you'd suspect, Season 6 will start mid-2015, presumably in June, and Season 7 will premiere in mid-2016.
Tom Ascheim, president of ABC Family, said that "Pretty Little Liars has taken its place in the zeitgeist and reigns supreme in pop culture," adding, "I am glad to bring another two seasons to our audience because ‘A’ has a lot in store for our Liars."
Obviously, the Liars are getting to the end of their high school careers. Does this mean we'll see them in college in Season 6 or 7? Maybe not. Showrunner Marlene King recently did a Reddit Ask Me Anything, where she revealed the following tidbit: "there will be a time jump, it may be on the TV show, or the movies we are starting to talk about, but there will be a time jump. We will 'jump' college." Our guess is this will happen in one of these seasons.
Are you glad to hear Pretty Little Liars is sticking around, or do you think it should wrap up sooner? Let us know in the comments below!
Catch the Pretty Little Liars Season 5 premiere on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
