On Tuesday, January 7, ABC Family will run an all-day marathon of its most popular series, “Pretty Little Liars,” which will lead into the season premiere of the series and its spin-off, “Ravenswood.”
“After years of tormenting and numerous shocking revelations, the Liars are united and ready to kick some ‘A’ and uncover the truth. No longer just wanting to sit by and wait for “A’s” latest cruel attack, Aria (Lucy Hale), Emily (Shay Mitchell), Hanna (Ashley Benson; ex-Abigail Deveraux, “Days of our Lives”) and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) take matters into their own hands and try to finally put a stop to their tormentor,” reads the description of the “PLL” marathon, which airs from 12:00 PM – 8:00 PM ET/PT. All that leads into the the season premiere at 8:00 PM ET/PT, which finds the Liars still reeling from the events of the Ravenswood Founders Day Celebration. They seek answers into what happened to Ali (Sasha Pieterse).
After nearly 14 years on the air, SOAPnet ended its broadcast run at the stroke of midnight with the final 2013 episode of ABC’s “General Hospital” (originally aired on Monday, December 30) taking it out in style.
During its final hour of broadcasting, viewers were treated to endless commercials promoting ABC and ABC Family programming, including “General Hospital,” “Revenge,” “The Chew,” “The Fosters,” “Switched at Birth,” “Pretty Little Liars,” and “Ravenswood.” For those veiwers looking to tune into the midnight broadcast of “Days of our Lives,” they were treated to a message from their cable and/or satellite provider that read, “Disney discontinued their SOAPnet broadcast. The SOAPnet channel is no longer available from any television provider.”
Justin Bruening fans may want to prepare themselves for a few extra heartbeats in the months ahead, because the seriously sexy actor is headed to ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” spinoff, “Ravenswood.”
