Tag: Pretty Little Liars (1-10 of 84)
ABC has announced the next group of celebrities who will be taking over the dance floor for season 19 of Dancing with the Stars. The cast features celebrities on both ends of the age spectrum, like 17-year-old Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson and 72-year-old fashion designer Betsey Johnson. The show also introduced a new career category, with the first digital star ever on the series: YouTuber Bethany Mota. Of course, there’s also the usual mix of athletes and actors, including Mean Girls actor Jonathan Bennet (You go,
Glen Coco Aaron Samuels) and Alfonso Ribeiro, a.k.a. Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, a.k.a. a guy who already has a dance move named after him.
“There still is no shortage of who wants to do this show,” show runner Rob Wade tells EW. “It’s not just about name value or something like that. It’s about the stories you can tell with these casts. We want to be original and different. We want archetypes, not stereotypes, going in.”
Here’s the full list of the 13 celebrities competing and their partners: READ FULL STORY
Fans of Pretty Little Liars knew someone was going to die heading into last night’s summer finale. But the question of who—and perhaps more importantly, which character would do the killing—remained unknown up until the final minutes of the episode.
After spending the episode helping the Liars track down recordings of Bethany Young’s therapy sessions and apaprently discovering solid proof that Alison DiLaurentis is “A,” Mona Vanderwaal, the Original “A,” put her life in the hands of one deadbolt … and it did not go well. Although her killer’s identity isn’t certain, there are strong hints that Ali murdered Mona. Whoever did it took Mona’s body with them, hauling her off in the trunk of a car in the final shot of the episode.
We caught up with Janel Parrish, the very alive actress behind the very dead Mona to talk about that death, her future on the show, and what comes next on PLL‘s first ever Christmas episode.
Last year, the Pretty Little Liars summer finale shocked fans when the camera panned around to reveal that Ezra was the man in the black hoodie and potentially the leader of the “A” team. As we now know, that was all a cover-up—Ezra was merely an author trying to solve a mystery and write a best-selling book—but in the moment, the idea that the beloved Mr. Fitz could be evil was heartbreaking. So heading into tonight’s summer finale, which is being labeled the “fatal finale,” fans are on edge for whatever twist showrunner Marlene King has in store. And she promises it’s a good one.
“[The finale is] a different kind of shocking,” King said. “Literally two days ago, we had our final playback for it, so we could hear all the sound and everything, and there were a few people who work on the show who do music and sound and they hadn’t read the script, and I will say that there were a lot of gasps and some tears were shed. People had to take a moment after they watched it to gain their composure.” READ FULL STORY

We are two weeks away from the Pretty Little Liars season-five summer finale with producers already teasing a #FatalFinale. And considering that, at this time last year, fans found out about Ezra’s pretty little secret and everything changed, there’s no telling what the writers have in store for us this year. I hopped on the phone with executive producer Joseph Dougherty, who wrote Tuesday’s penultimate episode, to chat about what the next hour (or two) has in store.
Binge-watching is an epidemic, one not limited to college campuses or even high schoolers experimenting for the first time. People everywhere with real careers, mortgages, and grown-up lives have been afflicted. Forget doctors—it’s time for celebrities to step in.
EW rounded up stars from some binge-watching favorites—from Orange is the New Black to Parks and Recreation—to remind you that binging can have harmful effects on everything from your self-esteem to your social life. And if you do choose to binge, follow our tips about best practices. As Oscar Wilde once said, “everything in moderation, including moderation.” (He was probably talking about cucumber sandwiches or something, but let’s pretend it was Lost.)
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
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
'Pretty Little Liars': Marlene King on that twist, life after 'A,' and the season you 'will not see coming'
Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season 5 premiere of Pretty Little Liars, stop reading now!
Last night’s season 5 premiere of Pretty Little Liars revealed another member of the “A” team before, moments later, killing off that person. More specifically, Aria killed Shana in self-defense. For those of you who watched it live, odds are you’re still wrapping your head around everything that happened — not to mention CeCe’s farewell — but we’ve got a little something that might help.
We chatted with PLL showrunner Marlene King about the decision to kill Shana, what exactly Ezra whispered, and what comes next with Mona’s Army. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

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. And after the Pretty Little Liars season 4 finale left us with a wounded Ezra and a potentially dead Mrs. D, season 5 will pick up right where we left off: On the way to the hospital and full of questions. So what now?
First things first, EW paid a visit to the PLL set to try and get some of those questions answered before the emotional trauma of another season begins. Here’s what we learned: READ FULL STORY
