Marlene King Says the Most Important Message in 'Pretty Little Liars' is About Friendship

Pretty Little Liars may be over, but the influence of the seven-season teen drama is not dying out anytime soon. The final episode was the most-tweeted about television episode of 2017, and throughout its run, the show taught its viewers a lot about resilience, bravery, and friendship.

In a new essay, showrunner Marlene King opens up about the “true aim” for the show and what it means to her.

“The true aim of Pretty Little Liars was to show its audience that friendship could get you through anything,” she wrote in an essay for Thrive Global, It was important that we show that in as many and diverse ways as possible. Through breakups, huge mistakes, betrayal and mental health issues, these girls stuck together.”

She went on to talk about how it means a lot to her what her audience took out of the show.

“We hope we have given our audience not just seven years of wish fulfillment but also a path to seeing how to promote friendship and kindness through choices and actions.”

She has definitely given us that, and a little bit of our hearts will be in Rosewood forever.
