“Pretty Little Liars” Season 7B won’t air until summer next year, but production for the final season of the Freeform series is already underway.
“Pretty Little Liars” creator Marlene King recently shared a small teaser of the upcoming season of the series on Twitter. “Reflecting on where we have been, where we are now, and what is to come. #SeavenSeasons later #PLLSeriesFinale (sic),” she wrote, alongside a photo of her on the set of “Pretty Little Liars.” Check out King’s tweet below!
Meanwhile, King previously opened up about what fans can expect in the last 10 episodes of “Pretty Little Liars” after Season 7A concluded in August. The showrunner told Us Weekly on Aug. 31 that there won’t be a time jump, so Season 7B will pick up immediately where the previous season left off.
“It’s one of our moments-later premieres. So, Ali (Sasha Pieterse) will not be super pregnant, she’ll just be a little more pregnant than she was last night,” she explained.
King also revealed that the love triangle between Emily (Shay Mitchell), Ali and Paige (Lindsey Shaw) will be further explored in the last season. She continued, “Paige is not gone for good. Having that triangle play out felt very appropriate for us as storytellers as we embark upon these final 10 episodes.”
Some old faces will also be returning in “Pretty Little Liars” Season 7B, and one of them is Melissa Hastings’ (Torrey DeVitto) ex-boyfriend, Wren (Julian Morris). According to King, he will finally share a scene with Ezra (Ian Harding). “We’ll see him in more than one episode, which is fantastic. He had never had a scene with Ezra, and he and Ian [Harding] are friends in real life, so [Julian Morris] was like, ‘Please, can I have a scene with Ezra?’ So that was really the originator for the first scene that we’ll see Wren in when he comes back,” she dished.
As for the fate of “Pretty Little Liars” after Season 7B, King said there’s a possibility that fans will see the Liars reunite in the future, though she’s not sure whether it’ll be on the small or big screen. “We’re very open to finding ways to keep these characters alive. I hope that down the line we find a way to bring the girls back together again. It’s such a fun world to play in that we’re always keeping those options open,” she told the outlet.
Excited to find out what’s in store for the Liars and the other characters? “Pretty Little Liars” Season 7B premieres in April 2017 on Freeform.
