ABC Family Renews Lying Game for Season 2

Get More: News, Renewals

Here’s the honest-to-God truth: ABC Family has picked up The Lying Game for a second season, the network announced Tuesday.

ABC Family’s Summer Slate: Find Out When Pretty Little Liars and Jane By Design Return!

The series is slated to return with new episodes this winter. But will Charisma Carpenter’s Rebecca — who was revealed to be twins Emma and Sutton’s biological mother in the season finale — be back?

“I’m there if they’ll have me!” Carpenter told TVLine last month. As for what the future holds, star Alexandra Chando teased that “based on the cliffhanger in the finale, there’s definitely going to be a shift in the story. And because of that, the show could take on a whole new direction.”

  • The Best news I heard ALL day!!! The only thing that could beat this today would be if Ringer was also renewed. LOL Kind of ironic how both shows feature a Good and Evil twin LOL

    • I wanted a second season of Chloe King too. I also wished they had give Kyle XY a last season to wrap stuff up.

  • Yes! Some good news- now, if only, they’d bring back Chloe King! I love the lying game! I’m starting to read the books and they are very different .

    • Yeah. Having Sutton as a ghost who doesn’t know who kills her is an interesting angle in the books. I wonder at times if they’ll ever go there with the tv show.
