7. Pretty Little Liars

Seasons: 7

The theme song of Pretty Little Liars asks if you can keep a secret, but the series itself wasn’t kept a secret. The hit Freeform (formerly ABC Family) mystery thriller quickly became a pop culture phenomenon after its premiere in the summer of 2010. Everyone and their mother wanted to know who this haunting A was that stalked the main characters, and the fervent fan interest — okay, obsession — bolstered the series for a seven-season, 160-episode run.

Based on the young adult novel series of the same name, Pretty Little Liars centers on a group of four teenaged girls who find themselves hounded by a mysterious entity calling itself A one year following the murder of their friend Alison. The group grew apart after Alison’s death, but their shared stalker brings them back together to cover their tracks and figure out who’s sending these harrowing messages. It’s a little bit Gossip Girl and a little bit Scream.

Pretty Little Liars dominated the small screen teen drama scene for its seven seasons and quickly cultivated a strong fandom thanks to the rise of social media. The series spawned two spin-offs, the one-season wonder Ravenswood and the current sequel series Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, which follows the characters Alison and Mona. As its legacy of pretty little lies lives on, it’s never too later to binge-watch the series that started it all.
