8 Shows You Should Start Watching Now That Pretty Little Liars Has Ended

After seven turbulent years together, our time with Pretty Little Liars officially came to a close early last week.

It was the end of an era, as we discovered A.D.'s true identity and saw the liars move on to happier times following the major reveal.

While we're relieved this craziness is over, we can't help but feel a bit empty knowing there will be no new PLL episodes in our lives.

The easiest way to fill this void is to get into an equally amazing series, so scroll below for eight TV shows that'll replace the PLL-shaped hole in your heart.


Riverdale may be a new show to The CW, but it's already garnered quite the cult following.

The show centers around the beloved characters from the Archie comics and paints them in a whole new light. Much like the liars, these characters must uncover plenty of secrets that plague their "wholesome" town of Riverdale.

The Lying Game

Based on the book series of the same name written by Sara Shepard, the author of the PLL novels, this show deals with a whole lot of, well, lying.

After discovering they're identical twins, Sutton and Emma trade places so Sutton can find their birth mother. Unfortunately, Sutton never returns and Emma is left with the decision of revealing herself or carrying on the rest of her life as Sutton.

Famous in Love

I. Marlene King, the creator of the PLL series, also brought this Bella Thorne-centric show to life. So you already know it's amazing, because Marlene can do no wrong.

The show follows Bella's character Paige's ride from ordinary girl to global superstar after she lands the lead role in a major motion picture. Every girl's dream, tbh.

Veronica Mars

Kristen Bell plays Veronica Mars, a snarky, once-popular teen who now helps her private investigator father dig up the truth behind what's really going down in her seedy hometown of Neptune.

There's a whole lot of mystery in this show that'll keep you on your toes until the very end, kind of like PLL did.

Degrassi: Next Class

If you think the liars had a lot of drama to deal with, it doesn't compare to what the kids at Degrassi High on Degrassi: Next Class deal with on the regular.

This series has a ton of heart and will teach you some very important life lessons in every episode.

The Secret Circle

This short-lived drama deserves more credit. A bit like the '90s masterpiece The Craft, this supernatural show follows four girls as they come to grips with discovering they have magical powers. But it's not all fun and games, as they learn something wicked this way comes.

Life Sentence 

We'll miss seeing all the liars on our TV screens, but thankfully we won't have to wait too long for Lucy Hale's return.

She'll be starring in The CW's new show Life Sentence as Stella, a girl who suddenly learns she is no longer dying of cancer, which premieres January 2018.

The Bold Type

Another show soon to be released that holds so much promise is Freeform's The Bold Type, premiering Tues., July 11.

Following three women who work for a global women's magazine, this show sheds light on the importance of female friendships and lifting each other up.

That's a major thing we took away from PLL—always be there for your besties.
