Marlene King dished out what happen after Ian goes missing, what the theme of season 2 is and where the new season would begin the story.
If the first season is about the hunt for Allison's murderer, "Pretty Little Liars" would be back this June with more aggressive hunt for "A". Showrunner Marlene King has a few points about season 2, including the season's theme, more secrets, returning characters and where the new season will pick up from.
"Season one felt really like the hunt for Allison's killer," King told NY Post. "Season two is very much more about the hunt for 'A'. The PLL's decide to push back. There's also a fun storyline involving a therapist. The police wind up thinking the girls are lying about Ian and their parents get together and insist they go to see someone to deal with these seemingly obsessive thoughts about pinning Allison's murder on Ian. The therapist is going to play a very important part of season two and in the girls hunt for 'A'."
When asked whether the recent finale where [Spoiler Alert] Ian got pushed by hooded figure and his body disappeared would cause the Rosewood residence to doubt PLL's version of events, King said, "Yes, that's very much what the season premiere will be about - is 'A' going to succeed in making them the town pariahs. That's definitely her goal, but you'll have to watch to see if she is successful."
King also confirmed that there's more to Melissa and Jenna than to meet the eyes. In fact, Jenna's relationship with Officer Garret would be "an integral part of the mystery in season two." In addition, Lucas would be a big part of season 2 opener and the episode after. "He's going to form this really fun bromance with Caleb that I think the audience is going to love," King teased.
Season 2 begins June 14 on ABC Family. Like in the mid-season finale, it will chronicle "moments later again."
