ABC Family renews 'Pretty Little Liars' for sixth and seventh seasons

ABC Family announced on Tuesday that the network has given drama series Pretty Little Liars a multi-season pickup just ahead of the fifth season premiere.

The popular series was picked up for a sixth season, which will air in mid-2015, and a seventh season, which will air mid-2016, reports Variety.

The show, created by I. Marlene King, has done quite well for ABC Family as the show has done well using social media and even managed to snag a partnership with Audi.

"'Pretty Little Liars' has taken its place in the zeitgeist and reigns supreme in pop culture," ABC Family president Tom Acheim said. "I am glad to bring another two seasons to our audience, because 'A' has a lot in store for our Liars."

The series, which follows four teens attempting to figure out who killed their friend, has been the network's top program across all targeted demos and in overall viewership, according to Deadline. The show averages 3.8 million viewers each episode and a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic.

PLL also averages a 3.7 rating in the women 18-34 demo and a 2.8 rating in the 12-34 female demo.
