Freeform Logo

On Tuesday, January 12th, ABC Family becomes Freeform – a name that “speaks to the network’s ongoing priority to super-serve Becomers, fans on that epic adventure of becoming an adult, a life stage that spans people who are ages 14-34.’

To celebrate the rebranding, Freeform will transition with a daylong virtual event that will include ‘a Social DNA Project with Twitter; a live stream of events via Periscope; a Vine booth; a BuzzFeed Facebook Live chat and a custom Pretty Little Liars Facebook icon; Instagram content and talent takeovers; and a “Pretty Little Liars” Snapchat filter.’ And that’s just skimming the surface!

The day will culminate in the series premiere of the sixth season premiere of Pretty Little Liars (8/7C) and the series premiere of Shadowhunters (9/8C). Follow the jump for much, much more.

If there’s a group of women who rock an LBD better than the Pretty Little Liars, I’m not sure who that would be. They even rock ’em in a cemetery (not unusual for them), though this time there’s a new accessory.

Check out the new poster for season 6B following the jump. Pretty Little Liars opens the first night of programming for the rebranded Freeform on Tuesday, January 12, 2016 (8/7C).
