According to a press release from Freeform (formerly known as ABC Family), the mid-season summer finale will air tomorrow night, August 30, 2016. After that, the show will go on hiatus. When it returns in April 2017 for the final 10 episodes of the season, those will also be the final 10 episodes of the show.
The series finale will be 2 hours long and certainly filled with the drama for which the show is known.
Pretty Little Liars premiered in 2010 and has maintained a solid cult following since. It has also gained a lot of attention on social media where it has an immense following across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. In fact, its social media presence and interaction and engagement with fans is often cited as a reason for the show’s success.
The show has received 36 Teen Choice Awards and 4 People’s Choice Awards.
Fans of the show and especially fans of I. Marlene King’s work will be able to watch her new series, Famous in Love, which will examine the dark side of fame. It will premiere on April 17 following the return of Pretty Little Liars.

I already knew pll was gonna end after season 7, they made that pretty clear. I'll miss it but it's gotten too ridiculous these days #PLL

Gutted that #PLL is finishing after season 7 but can't handle anymore months/weeks/episodes wondering who A was or who A.D is
