The wait is over, “Pretty Little Liars” fans. No, Season 7B isn’t airing just yet — but we know when it will be.
There are just 10 episodes remaining in the Freeform series, which aired its summer finale Aug. 30. According to TVLine, “Pretty Little Liars” will air the first of the final episodes on April 18, 2017, at 8 p.m. EST. The wildly popular series will pick up right where it left off in Season 7A — with Spencer (Troian Bellisario) fighting to survive. Little else is known about the second half of Season 7 at this point.
In an effort to quell “Pretty Little Liars” fans desire to piece together the show’s end, creator Marlene King shared a very special spoiler on Twitter in September. Just as she did with the show’s pilot in 2010, she shared a few lines from the “Pretty Little Liars” finale with viewers.
The text was five lines total and left much to the imagination. The first of the excerpts hints there’s trouble ahead for Alison (Sasha Pieterse). The text appears to be from a phone call between she and Spencer, during which the latter pleads with her to reunite. Ali hangs up the phone and tells another person that she just got through talking with the police.
A second passage from the script revealed that Toby (Keegan Allen) survived the devastating car crash he and fiancée Yvonne (Kara Royster) were involved in during the midseason finale. While it’s clear that Toby survived the crash, Yvonne’s fate remains a mystery. The pair were both unconscious when credits rolled on the episode.
King tweeted several more bits of the “Pretty Little Liars” final script, though the remaining three pieces were shrouded in much more mystery. She removed character names from the text, making it unclear who is speaking. One portion of the script suggests that a death may be coming, though it is not clear who the victim will be.
On Sept. 20, King shared with fans that she and the “Pretty Little Liars” team were working on shooting the finale. She shared a photo of herself — reflected in what appears to be a glass window on the Warner Bros. Studios lot — on Twitter. King shared a message along with the photo, telling fans she was “reflecting” on the past few years with the show.
“Pretty Little Liars” Season 7B premieres in April 2017 on Freeform. The finale is expected to be two hours long.
