Murder! Mean girls! Romance! The Liars are back and prettier than ever. But ABC Family's hottest drama ain't so little anymore. Thanks to mondo ratings and the crazy chemistry of stars Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario and Shay Mitchell — not to mention some killer twists — the ladies of Rosewood have returned with bigger secrets, bolder story lines and enough addictive drama to have even the mysterious "A" saying OMG! Here's why Pretty Little Liars has gotten us — and millions of other fans — hopelessly hooked.
The Plots Are Thickening
The first season of Pretty Little Liars ended months ago, but when the show returns Tuesday (8/7c on ABC Family) it'll resume mere moments after last season's finale. We last saw Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Aria (Lucy Hale), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) wondering where on Earth Ian's body had gone — and how, without it, police would believe that he was Alison's killer. TVGuide.com spoke with executive producer Marlene King who says that the mystery behind Ian's disappearance -- and whether he's dead or alive -- will be answered in the first half of the summer episodes. Plus: King addresses our other burning questions.
