First TNT announced its summer premiere dates, and now it’s ABC Family’s turn.
This summer, fans of ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ ‘Switched at Birth’ and ‘The Fosters’ will be happy to learn that each series will return in June.
Let’s start with ‘PLL.’ Our favorite ‘Liars’ (Troian Bellisario, Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell) will return for their fifth season as Spencer, Aria, Hanna and Emily, respectively, on Tuesday, June 10 at 8/7c.
For those wanting more of ‘Switched at Birth’ and ‘The Fosters’, well, get ready, because both dramas return with new episodes on Monday, June 16.
Now, for the new series coming to ABC Family.
First up, we have the drama ‘Chasing Life.’ Adapted from the Televisa Spanish-language Mexican TV series, this series follows April (Italia Ricci), a twentysomething smart and witty journalist trying to work her way to the top of a Boston newspaper, all while dealing with her recent cancer diagnosis. It premieres Tuesday, June 10 at 9/8c, following ‘PLL.’
Next, the Ashley Tisdale-produced comedy ‘Young & Hungry’ will make its debut on Wednesday, June 25 at 8/7c. The comedy revolves around young food blogger Gabi (Emily Osment) and wealthy young tech entrepreneur Josh (Jonathan Sadowski), whose two worlds collide.
Lastly, we have ‘Mystery Girls,’ starring Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth. The comedy follows two former detective TV show stars, Charlie Contour (Garth) and Holly Hamilton (Spelling). The duo are brought back together by a real-life mystery. The new comedy debuts Wednesday, June 25 at 8:30/7:30c.
For those wondering why ‘Twisted’ is not on the network’s summer schedule, it's because no additional episode have been ordered, yet. Most likely, if/when episodes are ordered, it would air this fall or winter, at the earliest.
