Lying Game Season 2 Premiere Date Revealed? Plus: The First Six Episode Titles

The dawn of the new year will bring the new season of The Lying Game, Alloy Entertainment, which produces the series with Warner Horizon, announced on Friday.

Although ABC Family maintained to TVLine that a date has not yet been set, Alloy said that Season 2 of the switching, swapping twins tale — which for so long was tagged for a vague “winter” return — will kick off Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, marking a nearly 10-month hiatus for the drama. (HollywoodLife.com first picked up on the stealthy premiere date reveal. UPDATE: Alloy’s announcement has since been taken down.)

Alloy also disclosed the titles for the first six episodes, as follows:

“The Revengers” (which jibes with what Charisma Carpenter told us about Season 2; see link above)

“Cheat, Play, Love” (a literary riff that flies right over the head of the young ABCF viewer)

“Advantage Sutton” (I sense a… tennis motif?)

“A Kiss Before Lying” (not to be confused with the Smallville headline I once wrote, “A Kiss Before Flying” — gold, I tell ya. Granted, the Clois smooch ended up getting scrapped, but…. Wait, why are we rehashing that dark moment?!)

“Much Ado About Everything” (can’t ever go wrong with the Bard, kids)

“Catch Her in the Lie” (another literary nod! Raise your hand if you remember Sunny the prostitute!)

Can you wait another four months — if Alloy, which produces The Lying Game, has it right, that is — to catch up with Sutton, Emma, Rebecca et al?

    I kind of figured this wouldn’t be back until January. No big deal. In fact, the show started to lose me during its first season, so I’m curious to see how they’re going to “WOW” viewers in January.

    • Jazzabell says:

      really I love this show, I though it had so much to offer, its not everyday you see a show about twins. It’s something different from reality tv and i love it.. :)

  2. Jared says:

    I hope the 10 month hiatus doesn’t hurt this series too much. One of my favorite shows on ABCF.

    • iMember says:

      I agree. I really hope ABC Family’s long hiatus doesn’t hurt it, because I’d like to see this continue on as a long as PLL has and possibly grow to be as successful.

    • Kyle says:

      If I was a fan of the show I would be worried about the long hiatus. Other ABC Family shows with long hiatuses haven’t faired well. Kyle XY and Make It or Break It, two of my favorite shows, were both cancelled after debuting after 10+ month hiatuses.

    • Linda says:

      Me too, we’ve waited too long for the return. ABC Family executives, please return this series and come on…let’s have more than 6 episodes. Let’s get it movin and you’d have great success.

  3. iMember says:

    I’m really excited for the show to come back. The season finale cliffhanger was a ball drop! I’m going to assume that The Lying Game will be airing alongside Pretty Little Liars when it returns in January for Season 3B as well, which will be great! I look forward to Season 2 and what the writers have planned, because they’ve certainly had a long time to plan out this season. Good and entertaining show!

    • Just because it doesn’t come back until January, doesn’t mean they necessarily had any more time to write it/plan it out. It’s just as likely the season has already been shot or at least is almost complete.

  4. I miss this show. Too long a hiatus, hope they promote the second season

  5. This hiatus is way too long, and the show is still developing a fan base. They need to promote it like crazy, and pair it with Pretty Little Liars. This show is just as good as PLL in my opinion, and the writers answer questions quicker which I love.

  6. Lauren says:

    I didn’t think it would be coming back, so I’m glad it is! Can’t wait!! I hope there’s some good Emma and Thayer scenes!!

  7. tvaddict says:

    I am so ready for this show to come back! It was such a good companion show to Pretty Little Liars!

  8. JC says:

    This may be the first time in history that HollywoodLife.com has gotten something correct.

  9. Pretty Little Liars & The Lying Games best line up ever along side the new huge abc sunday line up Once Upon A Time, Revenge, & 666 Park Ave.

  10. ladyluck527 says:

    That hiatus was too long, but I am glad that it is coming back! I love this show!

  11. Ram510 says:

    I would think they would start back on January 7th or 8th. Not too many networks start a new season of a show on a holiday

  12. Susy says:

    I am so excited for season 2! I hope that it does air on Tuesday nights so I can watch new episodes when they premiere. Last season, Being Human aired at the same time as the Lying Game- which was tough for me, since I love both shows!

  13. Does anyone know how many episodes have been ordered 8 or 10? Can’t find any information anywhere.

  14. Kat Miller says:

    I didn’t start watching it until the season was 2 episodes from over so I caught up on all of them on the internet. I cant wait till it is back.

  15. Girl from a small town says:

    I really enjoy TLG. Its one of my favorites!! Greek was really good to but ended so I hope this one doesn’t end to soon..

  16. Hillarie says:

    I LOVE this show, almost as much as PLL. Cant stand the wait but I would love even more to see Emma with Thayer! Let Sutton have Eathan ;)

  17. Gail says:

    I just finished watching season 1 and I love the show. I can’t believe how addictive the show was! Can’t wait until Season 2!

    I turn to shows like this because they are written well to be able to focus on the story line and forget about the day to day issues of life. This is the kind of shows that make me turn on the TV not the reality crap. Great Stuff, Thanks

  18. cindi says:

    I think its bad to constantly push back a shiw that long,because those who are fans may say goodbye ..after waiting so long..i would teally rethink your premier date please…

  19. Rebecca Hawkins says:

    I love this show to death I cant wait to see season 2 y is it taking so long it better be as good as season 1 ♡

  20. Melissa says:

    After waiting so long, there should definitely be MORE than 6 episodes. Come on, is the network trying to set the series up to fail? Quit jerking the fans around and give us what we what! …… We wanna watch more of the Lying Game ;)

  21. Phoenix says:

    If ABC family is smart they will start listening to its viewers. We’ve lost a lot of good shows on this network because of their stupidity. If we lose another one i will probably boycott the network at this point.

  22. Casey says:

    I can’t wait for it to be back! I was soo caught up in it and then it disappeared :C

  23. katrina says:

    I got tired of waiting and read the books but they are quite different than the series but really good. The book series isn’t done either so once again I’m waiting……. cant wait for the show to come back love it.

  24. Kristen says:

    Yay! I can’t wait for this show to come back! People are crazy the first season was very interesting to me!

  25. kate says:

    Oh crap!! I love the show and just watched the last one, but I’m in the UK so does this thread mean I’m getting hiped up for january for seaoson 2 when ill probs be waiting longer here??!!!???!!! :-0

  26. lynda says:

    does anyone know when series 2 shows in the UK ?

  27. Wendy says:

    I absolutely LOOOVVE TLG. A few tips: promote it like crazy (its so amazing but not many people know about it). Secondly, speed up release dates. Thirdly, renew the show for much more episodes…The writers and actors ARE DOING AN AMAZING JOB. THE NETWORK SHOULD WORK HARDER TO PUBLICISE THE SHOW. THE ACTORS AND PRODUCERS ARE DOING THE BEST THEY CAN. TAKE SOME TIPS FROM THE CW NETWORK!

  28. Jhoana says:

    porfavor saquen mas de 10 capitulos para la segunda temporada

  29. mary says:

    Love the lying game show, please do not cancel!
