“Pretty Little Liars” Renewed for a Third Season

Great news for the girls of Rosewood!

ABC Family’s hit show “Pretty Little Liars” has officially been renewed for a 24-episode third season. Shay Mitchell tweeted today, “Picked up for a third season of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ !! Congrats to all the cast & crew! I can’t wait to see what ‘A’ has in store for us!”

The second half of the second season returns to ABC Family on January 2nd, and it won’t be short on drama. A month has passed on “Pretty Little Liars” since Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer were arrested and a lot has changed in Rosewood, and with the girls. No longer the mighty four best friends, the Liars are at each others’ throats and Emily has been iced out completely. But what could have divided them so severely? Has “A” finally won the game of divide and conquer? With Emily now truly on her own, is she ripe for “A’s” picking?

Catch the midseason premiere of “Pretty Little Liars” and “The Lying Game” on January 2 starting at 8pm.
