A cable drama series that has maintained a popular following, chalking up a series of awards while also seeing critics warm up to it over its long run, will go away after its seventh season. Freeform announced Monday that it is ending “Pretty Little Liars” after a run of shows that will premiere in April 2017.
The first half of season seven debuted in June and wraps with the summer finale tonight, Aug. 30. Part two of the final season will consist of another 10 episodes, including the two-hour series finale.
The young adult-focused drama series has been a consistent winner at the Teen Choice Awards since 2010, while also chalking up People’s Choice Awards, Young Hollywood Awards and other honors. Viewership has gradually eroded since season one averaged 2.87 million viewers, with season six slipping to an average of 1.72 million.
The wind-down of “Pretty Little Liars” will be used to help launch Freeform’s new series “Famous in Love,” which will lead out from episodes of “Liars.”
