Listen: Patrick J. Adams reveals why he really guest starred on 'Pretty Little Liars'

Suits star Patrick J. Adams visited EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) on Monday, and while he started The Editor’s Hour off right by singing along to Foreigner’s “I Want to Know What Love Is”—he has a lovely falsetto—his performance during our “You Said It!” game is what you really need to hear. How it works: We read lines from some of his previous TV credits, and he tries to identify the show and provide an interesting anecdote about shooting the role.

Listen to highlights below, which include Adams sharing how he guested on Pretty Little Liars in 2010 to win back series star Troian Bellisario, who’d broken up with him (it worked, they’re engaged), failed to play it cool alongside Lost‘s Terry O’Quinn, and almost got his own Ghost Whisperer spin-off. And psst, Orphan Black fans: He also describes how Helena’s hair really feels. READ FULL STORY

Five things we learned on the set of 'Pretty Little Liars' 100th episode

Just 99 episodes ago, Pretty Little Liars fans were introduced to the world of Alison DiLaurentis and the four Liars she left behind when she “died.” Five seasons later, we’ve followed those Liars through journeys of love, loss, betrayal, and lots of confusion, all of which peaked when Alison came back from the dead in season four.

However, Ali’s transition back to life in Rosewood has been anything but smooth. Aria accidentally killed Shana, someone murdered Mrs. D, and we still have no idea who’s in Alison’s grave. So with a number of mysteries left to solve, what will the show’s 100th episode hold for viewers? Well, we can promise a few familiar faces, at least one familiar place, and of course, another Twitter-worthy reveal.

EW was on set for the shooting of the 100th episode, and we sat down with the cast and executive producers to talk about what viewers can expect from the show’s 100th hour. READ FULL STORY

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season 5 premiere of Pretty Little Liars, stop reading now!

'Pretty Little Liars' cast, EPs reveal Mrs. D is officially [spoiler], Hanna's alcohol problem, more Rosewood funerals

It’s almost time to re-enter Rosewood, a place where cyberbullies reign, high schoolers come back from the dead, and more than one member of the DiLaurentis family has been dragged to a grave.

On the Scene: 'Pretty Little Liars' season finale event

Got a secret, can you keep it? The cast and crew of Pretty Little Liars sure can.

The season 4 finale event in New York was all about secrets: What happened the night Ali disappeared? Who’s A? What is Mrs. D up to? Predictably, the Liars and Co. couldn’t say much about what we may or may not be finding out soon, but they did give some special fans a sneak peak at the season finale an hour before it aired.

'Pretty Little Liars' music: Singer-songwriter Chris Arena gives an inside look

chris-arena.jpg

For singer-songwriter Chris Arena, everything changed the night that he heard Alexi Murdoch’s “Orange Sky” on The O.C. In that moment, he decided to walk away from a life filled with touring and paying bars to perform so that he could get a chance to really be heard. Realizing what great television music moments could be, he decided to focus on cinematic music.

“[The O.C.] broke so many good acts,” Arena said. “It almost set the tone for, I feel like, the Grey’s Anatomys and the Dawson’s Creeks; those shows really paved the way for this whole movement of new artists focusing on cinematic music. I just picked a point and focused.”

More specifically, he picked ABC Family’s hit show Pretty Little Liars. “My brother [and] his girlfriend – they’re a little younger than I am – he and his girlfriend and all her friends, they’re obsessed with the show. They would talk about it and geek out on it. I just thought that was a good target. I wasn’t really familiar with the show that much, and I started watching it, and I kind of secretly developed a really strong liking for the show, and I thought it was interesting. It worked out really nicely because they needed a lot of music that dealt with heartbreak and singer-songwriter acoustics. It was a nice match.”

So with that idea in mind, Arena started writing. “I started to write songs based on some of the scenes I’d been watching, and to put it in a polite way, I kind of harassed this one editor at Pretty Little Liars and sent him maybe 10 or 15 fully produced songs,” Arena said. “The first eight or nine didn’t get a response, and then he finally picked up on one, and he said, ‘We’re gonna try it out.’ And they used a 17-second clip of a song called “Babyfish.” They had a lot of people that got on board with the music, and they invited me to the editing bay, and one thing led to another. It worked out pretty well, actually. It was a very organic, natural process in that sense.”

Now, Arena has had six songs featured on Pretty Little Liars, as well as another on the now-canceled spinoff Ravenswood. So how does the process work? Well for starters, Arena is given months to brainstorm, write, and produce his music. For example, he was brought to the studio back in August to watch the Caleb and Hanna breakup scene, which would later air in the show’s Jan. 7 winter premiere. READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars' star Bryce Johnson cast in 'Supernatural' spin-off pilot

Bryce Johnson, best-known as Detective Darren Wilden on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, has been cast in the Supernatural spin-off, Supernatural: Bloodlines, EW has confirmed.
