Pretty Little Liars has a teen drama with a little bit of romance, and a lot of mystery has been on ABC Family (now called Freeform,) since 2010. For almost six years now, Marlene King has kept fans on their toes, trying to figure who A was, an anonymous person sending text messages trying to terrorize four girls (Hannah, Aria, Spencer, and Emily,) over the disappearance of their friend Alison.
The madness doesn’t stop there, when Alison returns the text messages still continue, and they get more and more dangerous as the seasons go on because A becomes not just one person, but a whole team.
The suspense of the show is what has kept it going. Will one of the liars die? Were they involved in the murders that A has accused them of? Will they marry their significant other? Fans have gone crazy over the answer to those questions and even now in season six, some of the questions still haven’t been answered.
Now fans have to deal with not only, not knowing the answer to these questions, but also that their beloved show is coming to an end.
On August 29, 2016, the stars of the show took to Facebook to release a video saying that their show would be coming to an end right after their ten episode finale series in April of 2017. Fans went crazy, one because they don’t want one of their favorite shows to end (a very normal reaction,) but two because their questions still haven’t been answered.
The creator promised that all of their questions will be answered. In an interview with Variety, “Karey Burke, Freeform’s executive vice president of programming and development,” said “I think they will be glad that they stayed on the ride. It’s mindblowing, it’s provocative, it’s everything the audience has come to expect from the show. It’s unexpected, and completely and totally satisfying.” All about the ending of the show.
So, the show might be ending, but there seems to be a lot of promise for the very last season. Considering how the show has gone on so far, and especially consider how the last episode ended, I don’t think it will be hard for the liars to go out with a bang.
It will definitely be weird for fans, finally getting the answers to their questions, and not waiting a week to figure out who or who isn’t A. The reactions from fans are pretty much all the same, they are sad to see their beloved show go, but they can’t wait to (hopefully) have all the answers they have waited for since episode one in 2010.
