Pretty Little Liars Cast and Creative Team Look Back at 100 Wild and Crazy Episodes

The ladies of Pretty Little Liars have been on one wild ride throughout the show's four and a half seasons.

Ravenswood Boss Calls Series a Terrifying Twilight Zone for Teens

If viewers think Pretty Little Liars is scary, just wait for the show's new spin-off Ravenswood.

"On Pretty Little Liars we've surprised people and we've put people in jeopardy, but we've never had a chance to straight-out scare people," executive producer Joseph Dougherty tells TVGuide.com.
