What factors went into the decision to end “Pretty Little Liars” after seven seasons?
They were entirely creative. It’s rare that you have a chance to send a series out on top, which the feeling very much was that this would achieve. It ultimately comes down to [showrunner] Marlene [King] and her vision, and her sense of where the natural place for the narrative to end was, and this was that. Knowing that there was an ending point really gave her and [producers] Oliver [Goldstick] and Joe [Dougherty] and Charlie Craig creative license to build very carefully toward something.
Could there ever be a revival? Perhaps another season of “Pretty Little Liars” with a totally different cast?
Right now, Marlene is completely focused on“Famous In Love,” as are we. One hundred percent of her and our efforts are going into launching that. As “PLL” waves goodbye, “Famous In Love” says hello. It is its own wonderful and different entity from “Pretty Little Liars.” While it’s vintage Marlene King and her voice, it’s a very different tone and I think we’ll completely satisfy “PLL” fans and yet give everybody the chance to exhale a little bit. What the future holds [for “Pretty Little Liars”], we don’t know yet, but it’s not our focus right now.
