After a year that consisted of mostly new series, it’s always great to see ABC Family showing the love to the veterans that have been on the network. Though Pretty Little Liars has only been on the channel since last summer, it has been a hit for ABC Family. And, it comes with no surprise that they announced yesterday that PLL will be getting a third season.
The third season will consist of 24 episodes, 12 to air in the Summer of 2012 and 12 to air in 2013. The hit mystery drama won’t be off the air for too much longer, however, as the second half of the series’ second season returns to air on January 2nd, 2012 at 8PM.
Based off of the popular novel series by Marlene King, the series follows the lives of Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale), Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario), Hanna Marin (Ashley Benson) and Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell), four girls whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their queen bee, Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse).
Happy the series is getting another year? Let us know in the comments!
