Executive producer Marlene King has revealed they have big ideas for a “Pretty Little Liars” movie. Unfortunately, the film is not something that will happen anytime soon.
“We’ve got some really big ideas for a great PLL movie, but that won’t happen right after the series ends,” King shared on the livestream of “Good Morning America’s” 40 for 40. “I think we’ll take a little break and let everybody go off and do a few things and hopefully we’ll come back together again and do something really special.”
The show is currently on a hiatus and will resume on Jan. 12, 2016 for its season 6 episode 11. Titled “Of Late I Think of Rosewood,” the episode fast forwards five years from season 6 episode 10. It will show the girls having graduated from college and are now mature young women leading “very interesting lives,” according to King. This time, they must reunite in Rosewood for a trial at court. Watch the teaser trailer below:
Prior to resuming in January, “Pretty Little Liars” will air a special on Nov. 24 that will show what happens during this five-year lapse. The special is titled “Five Years Forward” and, according to TVLine, it will reveal the girls’ careers, what happens inside and outside of Rosewood, and exactly how their moms got out of Alison’s basement.
“It fills in the gaps,” King said. “We’re giving fans a lot of information about what happened between the last time you saw the pretty little liars and when you’re going to see them in the future.”
The special will also show two scenes fans have not seen before and a mini tour of the new sets.
Viewers last saw Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale), Hanna Marin (Ashley Benson), Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario), Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell), and Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) in “Game Over, Charles.” In the episode, the girls finally discovered who was under the hoodie.
