We’ve got chills. The Season 5 premiere of “Pretty Little Liars” is less than two weeks away, and ABC Family has released a haunting new promo.
The new poster, which promotes the June 10 premiere, features five masks in front of a dark and cloudy background. While no faces are behind the masks, fans of the hit series will be able to find something familiar about them -- they resemble the Liars!
On the top left is a mask that resembles Emily’s face, the bottom left looks like Hanna, the top right looks like Spencer and the bottom right looks like Aria. But what about the center? That would be Alison’s face, of course! But unlike the four other masks, part of Alison’s mask is shattered.
What does the shattered mask mean? It could represent the mysterious attack on her that was finally explored in the Season 4 finale. Or the cracks could symbolize some of her upcoming struggles in Season 5.
As fans of “Pretty Little Liars” know, Alison will no longer be playing dead when Season 5 resumes. Although she’s been on the run for the past four seasons, the teen is ready to get to the bottom of “A” with the help of her friends. But the journey back won’t be easy -- she’ll be forced to explain how she’s back from the dead after being missing for two years … and having a body in her grave.
“[Season 5] feels like a whole new show because there are five Pretty Little Liars now,” series creator Marlene King told TV Guide in March. “It’s going to affect them all individually. It’s going to affect them as a group/It’s going to affect their relationships with their young male and female partners. Season 5 is shaping up to be emotionally the most complex season we’ve had so far.”
Season 5 of “Pretty Little Liars” premieres on ABC Family on June 10 at 8 p.m. EDT. What do you think Alison’s cracked mask stands for in the new promo photo? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section or send a tweet to @AmandaTVScoop.
