Freeform Sets ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Season 7 Premiere Date and Schedules More Summer Series

As part of its busy upfront presentation day, Freeform on Thursday announced summer premiere dates for seven shows, including Season 7 of flagship drama “Pretty Little Liars.”

The network kicks off its summer season on Wednesday, June 1, with the return of half-hour comedies “Young and Hungry” and “Baby Daddy.” This will be the start of the second half of season three for “Young” and the launch of the back half of season five for “Baby Daddy.”

On Monday, June 13, the soapy drama “Guilt” premieres at 9 p.m. ET. The story revolves around an American student in London whose roommate is murdered, and the mystery twists through many layers of London society — from a posh but depraved sex club and all the way up to the Royal Family itself. The series, which hails from Lionsgate TV and Thunderbird Films, stars Billy Zane, Emily Tremaine, Daisy Head, Cristian Solimeno, Naomi Ryan, Kevin Ryan, Zachary Fall, Simona Brown and Sam Cassidy.

Guilt” will be joined on Mondays starting the following week by the Season 4 premiere of “The Fosters.” The new season picks up immediately from the March 28 cliffhanger finale with Mariana’s emotionally devastated boyfriend Nick bringing a gun to school.

Starting Tuesday, June 21, at 8 p.m., the PLLs band together to unearth answers to the last remaining secrets and take down “Uber A” for good in what the network is calling the most romantic season of “Pretty Little Liars” to date.

New drama “Dead of Summer” bows Tuesday, June 28, at 9 p.m., following the second week of “Pretty Little Liars.” The series is set in the late 1980s at Camp Stillwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, where what was supposed to be a summer of fun soon turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn.

Dead of Summer” comes from ABC Signature Studios and executive producers Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis, Ian Goldberg and Steve Pearlman. It stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Elizabeth Lail, Zelda Williams, Mark Indelicato, Alberto Frezza, Eli Goree, Ronen Rubinstein, Amber Coney and Paulina Singer.

The final series set to roll out on Freeform this summer is “Cheer Squad,” which follows the two-time World Cheerleading Champions on the long road to defending their title as they try to balance life off the mat with the all-consuming battle to stay on top. It premieres Monday, Aug. 22, at 10 p.m. and will air nightly as a two-week programming event.

Looking ahead to early 2017, Freeform will roll out new drama “Beyond,” new alternative series “The Letter,” Season 2 of drama “Shadowhunters” and the final season of “Switched at Birth.”

“Beyond” is about Holden (Burkely Duffield), a young man who wakes up from a coma after 12 years and discovers new abilities that propel him into the middle of a dangerous conspiracy. “The Letter” is a relationship show that asks the simple question: If you could, without identifying yourself, would you tell your best friend what he or she really needed to hear?
