“I hope there will be some type of future for some characters,” Marlene responded, and her cryptic response is giving fans all the hope in the world.

“Umm there better be!!” Shay Mitchell quote tweeted the response.

'Pretty Little Liars' Showrunner Got More Pushback Over Emily Being Gay Than Anything Else

'Pretty Little Liars' Showrunner Got More Pushback Over Emily Being Gay Than Anything Else

Pretty Little Liars had its share of boundary pushing storylines throughout the seven season run.

There was Charlotte being transgender, a sort of implied incest storyline with Jenna and Toby, and we can’t forget about Aria and Ezra’s relationship — we mean, it was statutory rape.

“It was such a big part of Sara [Shepard]’s first book, and that book became the pilot, so we just sort of owned it,” showrunner I. Marlene King shared in a recent interview with NY Times.

“I wanted to be true to the characters that Sara created, and it was the biggest part of Aria’s story. It is what it is.”

But those storylines weren’t the biggest ones that she got pushback on — it was Emily Fields being gay!

“ABC Family was really a conservative channel, spun out of the Christian Broadcast Network,” she shared, “and so, yeah, I got a lot of angry letters from conservative Christian moms who couldn’t believe that two girls kissed in the pilot.”

“They didn’t care that Aria and her teacher were making out — they cared about two girls kissing. It says a lot about our society, for sure.”

However, Emily’s coming out and relationships were really important to tell, especially to Marlene.

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

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.

Shay Mitchell Still Has Her Original Audition Papers From 'Pretty Little Liars'

The Pretty Little Liars stars all took a little something from the set to remember their amazing experience on the show.

Shay Mitchell actually took all of Emily Fields’ tracksuits, plus her swimsuit and cap.

“I didn’t think I needed her running shoes because our styles are completely different,” Shay jokes in a new interview. “If I could wear heels every day, I would. But that’s Shay. Playing Emily was super fun for me because I literally got to be in her shoes.”

She actually had something else to remember the series by, too, and we’re not talking about her finger tattoo — her original audition papers!

“They’re ripped and highlighted,” she shared.

Right. In. The. Heart.

Sasha Pieterse Was 'Hit By a Wave of Absolute Joy' When Watching the 'PLL' Finale

Sasha Pieterse Was 'Hit By a Wave of Absolute Joy' When Watching the 'PLL' Finale

Pretty Little Liars actress Sasha Pieterse penned a gorgeous note honoring the end of the seven-season series earlier this week, and after the finale she took to Instagram again to work through all of her emotions.

“Yesterday marked the end of a major chapter in my life,” she wrote, accompanying the image of all five liars making a “shhh” sign from the finale, “As I’m sure a few of you know, the TV show Pretty Little Liars had it’s very last finale last night.”

Changing course after so many years left her feeling a bit uneasy.

“I woke up feeling sick with a huge knot in my stomach! It’s so surreal that there will be no more live ‘previously on Pretty Little Liars‘ and no more ‘Shhh’s’ at the end of that now very iconic song,” she said, “But as I joined my PLL family to watch the finale, I was hit by this wave of absolute joy.”

“It dawned on me that this is an end to an era,” she continued, “A very important era, but even more importantly it was a time to celebrate. To embrace the incredibly wonderful time we all shared together and to soak in every bit of joy it had brought me and others. PLL… playing Alison has been such a crucial part of my childhood and now adulthood.From starting and graduating high school, getting my drivers license, buying my first home, getting engaged to my best friend, and now wedding planning, what a trip! I just want to thank you. I wish I could give all of you a huge hug!”

She closes out her post with a tribute to both her fans and her future.

“You have seen me grow and you have grown with me. Thank you for always sticking by me, for never giving up on me or Alison. As I enter this new chapter of my life, I hope you will continue with me. There’s so many new fun adventures I’m about to journey through and I would be so honored if you all ride along with me. My blog @sashaingoodtaste is definitely one of those adventures. Sasha in Good Taste doesn’t just stop at this blog, there’s so many more things in store (very soon) that I can’t wait to show you! Creating and entertaining is such a passion of mine and having you share that alongside me, means the absolute world to me! We. are. family. and Rosewood will forever live on! I wholeheartedly ADORE YOU! Love, Sasha… -A #prettylittleliars #pllfamily #emisonfamily #emison #emisonisendgame #sashaingoodtaste.”

We can’t wait to see what she does next!

The appropriate last line of her post will also serve as the last line of this one: “That’s immortality my darlings.”

The 'Pretty Little Liars' Series Finale Could've Been So Much Different, Troian Bellisario Says

The 'Pretty Little Liars' Series Finale Could've Been So Much Different, Troian Bellisario Says

Pretty Little Liars could’ve ended an entirely different way than what we saw on Tuesday night.

Star Troian Bellisario, who played evil twin Alex Drake aka A.D., opened up about the original ending the writers had in mind.

“Originally — I don’t know if I’m supposed to say this — but I think originally the ending was supposed to be a little bit different where Alex had kind of gotten away with it a little bit more,” she says. “And the only person that was onto her was Toby.”

But that definitely didn’t happen.

Troian adds, “I think that ultimately would’ve left things too much up in the air and we would’ve been worried for Spencer.”

“It was really fun because this way, Spencer got a happy ending, and all the girls got a happy ending, and Alex got to be with her family – which is great, but also in a little bit of a tricky situation.”

Just imagine if the original ending was what happened — we’d have an entirely different set up for a potential spinoff!
