Pretty Little Liars might be ending soon, but Lucy Hale won't be off your screens for long! The Liar is starring in a new CW series Life Sentence, and we have the first look right here!

In the first trailer for Life Sentence, we're introduced to Hale's Stella who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer eight years prior However, in an unexpected twist of fate she discovers she isn't dying after all and now has to live with the consequences of the choices she made when she decided to "live like she was dying" -- including marrying a perfect stranger!

And now that she isn't dying, her family -- who had been hiding their own problems from Stella -- finally stop pretending and for the first time, Stella sees the full impact her illness had on those closest to her. And based on this trailer, the truth doesn't look too pretty.
