ABC Family’s hit drama show Pretty Little Liars returns to US screens tonight (UK fans can catch it on Netflix) as the channel rebrands with a new name (Freeform).
The liars are no longer teenagers as we travel five years into the future to start a new chapter.
“There’s a lot of awkwardness in 6B, especially in the first half as people are returning to Rosewood and reuniting,” executive producer Marlene King tells TVLine. “
Old habits die hard, so when you put all these characters back together in this small town, there’s going to be conflict. There’s love, but there’s also tension.”
Though the identity of “Uber Bad” is being kept a tight secret, King says its speciality is “taking advantage of everybody’s weakness,” which will make Emily — who is “by far the most damaged and broken by what has happened while we were away for those five years” — a prime target.
And it looks like everyone is a suspect like Uber A:
“everyone is a suspect” — including the girls’ new love interests. “Given the girls’ history with newcomers,” she hints, “it’s fair to say that they should be cautious.”
The show also gets a lot more edgier:
“We definitely get edgier in 6B,” King says. “I wouldn’t say we get darker, because we got very dark with the dollhouse, but the stakes are higher. And we’re more grown up. That’s the best way to describe the season: We’re all grown up.”
