Pretty Little Liars Is Ending, Here's What We Know

Pretty Little Liars has done a lot to put ABC Family Freeform on the map, but all good things end sooner or later, and in PLL’s case, it looks to be sooner. This week, Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale went on The Late Late Show with James Corden where she revealed that her long-running series is indeed ending after Season 7. Here’s what the actress had to say:

It is ending… I know you’re devastated. We’ve been doing it for six years and I literally spent my twenties on the show. I think that all good things must come to an end.

Lucy Hale is the first person to come out and officially confirm the end of Pretty Little Liars is near, but she isn’t the first person to note the show might be ending sooner rather than later. A couple of months ago, Pretty Little Liars creator Marlene King said she thought the show would be back for Season 7, but she also thought Season 7 would be the end. Freeform has yet to make a firm announcement regarding Pretty Little Liars, but it seems pretty clear that the series is heading toward an end.

Hale has spent nearly all of her twenties dealing with the shenanigans of A on Pretty Little Liars, which means she’s spent a lot of time thinking about her character and the direction the show is going. She says she used to want one thing for the show’s ending, but now she’s hoping the series will end on a dark note. 

I used to say I wanted the show to end, you know walking away in the sunset. They’re all happy, living an A-free life, no drama, right? But I don’t. I want it to end really tragically.

Obviously, Lucy Hale isn’t actually writing any of the Pretty Little Liars episodes, but she has inhabited the character of Aria Montgomery for the show’s entire run, so she has a pretty good vision of what the show is and where it may be heading.
