The Freeform network is going to have just as hard of a time saying goodbye to its crown jewel program, Pretty Little Liars, as the show's diehard fans. So to help us all process the loss, the Freeform brain trust has green lit a one-hour post-show special to air directly after the series finale next spring, according to Deadline. Stars Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, and Sasha Pieterse will join PLL mastermind I. Marlene King for a what's being billed as an "unbarred and uncensored tell-all aftershow" that will unpack "series' secrets" and "behind-the-scenes insights." But unless King uses the special to reveal that the series finale was a hoax all along, and that she'll be producing at least two more seasons of the craziest whodunit soap opera on television, there's no way this roundtable will ease the pain of saying goodbye.
