“Pretty Little Liars” executive producer Marlene King’s “Famous in Love” has received a full series order from Freeform, and this has sparked speculation that the Rosewood based teen drama will come to an end after Season 7 with the winding up of the Uber A storyline.
News of “Pretty Little Liars” coming to an end started doing the rounds in February 2016 shortly after actress Lucy Hale’s appearance on the “Late Late Show With James Corden.” “It is ending,” she said. “We’ve been doing it for six years… and I think that all good things must come to an end.”
Season 7 of the teen drama is currently in production, and King announced it via a tweet, writing, “No better crew than team PLL. We’re back, b—hes. #seasonseaven #PrettyLittleLiars.” King tweeted her excitement at being a part of “Famous in Love,” writing, “Love my PLL family. And so excited to grow my #FamousInLove family w you.”
King hasn’t made any official announcement regarding “Pretty Little Liars” coming to an end with Season 7, but just in case she gets too busy with her new projects, other executive producers such as Oliver Goldstick, Joseph Dougherty, Leslie Morgenstein, and Bob Levy can take the series forward, pointed out Bustle.
As for “Famous in Love,” it is based on Rebecca Serle’s novel of the same name, and it follows the life of a girl, played by Bella Thorne, who is chosen to act in the film-franchise adaptation of a popular book. Her simple life becomes complicated when she gets into a love triangle with the other two leads of the movie.
“Famous in Love” was ordered to pilot in October, and production on the pilot wound up in December 2015. “95% of our crew was the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ crew so it felt like a big family,” King told Variety late last year. “We just had a lot of fun, and I think you’ll see on the screen that it was so much fun. Bella [Thorne] is so lovely and such a hard worker and she’s very talented.”
