Fans of “Pretty Little Liars” who loyally stuck with it through six seasons have witnessed the transformations of the girls from vulnerable high school teenagers to brave women ready to face the world.
With the five-year time jump in the second half of season 6, a greater transformation can be expected. However, recent reports of the series’ potential cancellation may cut our time with the liars short.
In a report by E! Online, it was raised whether “Pretty Little Liars” will have season 7 as its very last season. The website mentions that show producer Marlene King was quoted in another interview as saying that the story they’re telling when season 6 returns on air will end in season 7. However, although many fans have interpreted the statement as confirmation to the show’s end, E! Online clarifies that King meant another thing when she said it.
E! Online details that King tweeted a clarification of her statement:
What I said was "This Uber A story that starts on January 12 will end when season 7 ends." I did not say PLL will end. Just sayin 4 real.
— I. Marlene King (@imarleneking) December 23, 2015
From the tweet, King emphasizes that she meant the new storyline about the new villain will be ending in season 7 and not the series as a whole.
This surely is a relief for fans. On another note, however, the progress of the show may not sit well with fans who are rooting for the ‘ships in “Pretty Little Liars”.
It was recently reported that Hannah’s (Ashley Benson) fiance has been cast (potentially breaking the hearts of many Haleb shippers). Now, Spoby fans may also have to keep their emotions in check.
TV Line reports that Kara Royster has been cast, a new character who is rumored to be Toby’s (Keegan Allen) new lady love.
According to the website, the new character is named Yvonne and her presence was mentioned by Keegan Allen himself in the Five Years Forward special. TV Line recalls that the actor described the character as “an important person in [Toby’s] story and his life.”
Since Allen did not blatantly say that there will be romantic feelings involved between Toby and Yvonne, then Spoby shippers could hold on to the glimmer of hope that the two may just be friends after all. Who knows, maybe they’re related?
It won’t be long before all your burning questions will be answered because “Pretty Little Liars” season 6 returns on air on January 12 at 8 p.m. on Freeform (ABC Family).
