ABC Family will ring in the New Year with all-new episodes of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS and THE LYING GAME.
The girls are ready to kick some “A” in PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, returning on a new night, Monday. No longer just wanting to sit by and wait for “A’s” latest cruel attack, Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer take matters into their own hands and try to finally put a stop to their tormentor. As relationships are put to the test, new and old secrets are revealed and the stakes are raised higher than ever before as the Liars come closer to the truth - will all of their sacrifices be worth it in the end?
In “Through Many Dangers, Toils and Snares,” airing 8:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, it's a month later in the town of Rosewood after the four Liars were caught by police. Fans can relive many twists and turns of “A’s” game in an all-day PRETTY LITTLE LIARS marathon starting at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT) and running up to the one-hour premiere at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT).

THE LYING GAME follws and it’s a season of secrets, seduction, and life-and-death stakes, as the twins continue to expose the skeletons in their family closet. Emma and Ethan’s love is stronger than ever, but their relationship is tested by questionable motives and accusations. When Sutton disappears after the big blow-up in the cabin, and the police find the stolen Mercer car at the bottom of the lake, Emma and Ethan don’t know whether Sutton is missing or dead. Thayer keeps their secret…for now…but has his own motive for wanting to tear them apart. Meanwhile, Char’s aunt Annie has returned to town after many years, bringing back old memories and secrets that Alec and Ted would like to keep in the past. Charisma Carpenter has been added to the cast as a recurring guest star as Char’s aunt (role of Rebecca Sewell).
