Season six will premiere in mid-2015 and the seventh season will kick off in mid-2016. This will make the television series the longest running on ABC Family. The show’s characters are played by Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson and Shay MItchell along with other well-known actors.
The teen drama began in 2010 and follows a clique of four girls who attempt to solve the mystery of the disappearance of their group leader. They received texts from a person known as “A,” who intimidates and threatens to reveal their secrets. Their main focus is trying to disclose “A.”
ABC Family President Tom Aschiem said, “Pretty Little Liars has taken its place in the zeitgeist and reigns supreme in pop culture.”
He continued, “I am glad to bring another two seasons to our audience because ‘A’ has a lot in store for our Liars.” The show remains the network’s highest-rated series in its history as well as a total of 3.8 million viewers.
It is unknown how long Pretty Little Liars will continue to produce seasons, but as long as ‘A’ is kept confidential, the show could continue for 10 more years.
