The Liars are back! On Tuesday, fans will get to sit down with the Marlene King, mastermind behind the mysterious “Pretty Little Liars” series, and the cast of the hit ABC Family drama during the upcoming special titled “Pretty Little Liars: 5 Years Forward.”
In the anticipated episode audiences will get an exclusive sneak peek at the chaos set to occur when Season 6 returns to the small screen in January 2016. During the midseason finale of the show, fans were left with their jaws agape after it was revealed a new big baddie had made its way to Rosewood … five years later. (Yes, that’s right. The new installment will pick up five years into the future of our favorite Liars!)
"We can't tell you what happens when we get back to Rosewood," Troian Bellisario, who portrays Spencer, dishes in a clip from the special. "However, the girls begin to, again, receive messages. They know it's not from Charlotte (Vanessa Ray), and this time it feels very different."
The reason it’ll feel different is because Spencer, Hanna (Ashley Benson), Aria (Lucy Hale), Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Alison’s (Sasha Pieterse) newest foe is hell bent on taking them down -- for good.
"This time it's no longer about, 'I'm going to expose some secret that you have,' or 'I'm going to ruin, like, your chances of getting the orchid scholarship,'" the actress explains. "It’s paranoia, it's blackmail, it's a life-threatening situation."
Keegan Allen, who plays Toby in the series, bolstered that statement, adding the girls’ newest enemy isn’t out to manipulate them, but is out for blood.
At 2015's New York Comic Con, it was revealed during the “PLL” panel that “ Pretty Little Liars: 5 Years Forward” will dish not only what the girls have been up to over the past five years, but will also touch on their new careers and love interests, as well as address the cliffhangers from Season 6’s midseason finale. In addition, fans will get a glimpse at two scenes from the upcoming installment and recieve scoop behind the Liars’ new makeovers (like Spencer’s blunt new bangs!).
“Pretty Little Liars: 5 Years Forward” will air on Tuesday, Nov. 24, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC Family.
