Pretty Little Liars: New Clues About the Girls' Lives After the Big Time Jump

Pretty Little Liars Time Jump

It’s still anyone’s guess what the future holds for the Pretty Little Liars, following Season 6’s impending five-year time jump, but we do know their next steps will find them crossing paths with several interesting gentlemen.

TVLine has learned exclusively that two male characters will recur in the second half of Season 6: Jordan, a sophisticated-yet-approachable 27-year-old working in the fashion industry, and Liam, a 24-year-old editorial assistant from Boston.

Could these new additions provide hints as to where the girls will end up in five years? Publishing seems like a perfect fit for budding-writer Aria, and I’ll give you one guess as to which girl I see working in fashion. (Then again, Aria’s current interest in photography also puts her in the running for a fashion-related career, and I could totally see Spencer in publishing. The mysteries continue!)

“We’ve been talking about [the time jump] for years,” executive producer Oliver Goldstick told TVLine back in March. “This is the same group of writers who have been here since Day 1, so a lot of the ideas that have been bandied about, even two or three years ago, are just now coming to fruition. We’ve had the writing on the wall — literally, on the board of our writers room — as to where these girls are going to end up. But we’re surprising ourselves, too. There are some juicy developments that we didn’t expect, which I think the audience is going to love.”

Time to weigh in on the girls’ post-time jump plans: Where would you like to see them all end up? Drop a comment with your thoughts and theories below.

    I can see Hanna working in the Fashion industry and Engaged or Married to Caleb. Yes they broke up last night but I don’t see that lasting

  2. I imagine Maya came back alive in S6 episode 10 in front of Emily and in time jump Emily will be working as a teacher or a couch and Maya as a police officer. Emaya got married and had a baby.

  3. alistaircrane says:

    Thank Christ. They have been in their senior year since the beginning of Season 3, FFS!!!

  4. Jessica says:

    I’m about to disappoint Ezria fans, But I hope that their breakup is permanent. I’d like to see her with someone new. I dont think Ezra’s a good fit for her anymore, now or in the five yr time jump.

    • Elana says:

      I totally agree get her with someone else!

      • Adilene says:

        No, they are soulmate so Ezria for ever!

        • B says:

          I agree. I’ve shipped Ezria since the pilot, maybe because I had a crush on my high school English teacher who flirted openly with me but that’s a topic for another forum lol ;)

          • Radha says:

            That is not something to be proud of.

          • Trebuchette says:

            It’s really sick. 26yo guy here lost his job for dating girl who is now 18, had pic of her at 16/17 on phone and they pinched him for child porn, and it wasn’t even ‘porn’. He’ll never work again in education, everyone thinks CP (“young child”) so his life is in danger, but parents/school want charges brought. Real life. Guy had NO restraint, but doesn’t deserve prison.

        • Gerry says:

          I agree, Ezria and Aria, I have liked them together since the beginning of the series.

        • oliviam says:

          I think ezra and aria should be together and have a kid

    • Annabelle says:

      I think that is would be so cute if Ezra and Aria would be married and the had a little child. Ezria is my favorite couple since the beginning and I hope and pray that they get back together and have a child. And if they aren’t that far into their relationship (having a child and all) then they should just be engaged and aria would be in the wedding bliss and all. I would love that!

    • Summer Raine says:

      I absolutely ship Ezria with every part of me, which is why I hate it when people say “Aria deserves better” I would like to see them separate just for something different, but only for a little while and I’d like to see Ezra with a women because Aria’s never been single for more than 2 episodes. Ezra needs another love interest

  5. Elana says:

    They should show Emily getting married or something that would be a twist or maybe even Alison!

  6. Cornelius says:

    I really want to know if the A mystery will be fully wrapped up (the best they can do with it being dragged on for 6 years) before this time jump. Cause if not, it makes no sense for the girls to have 5 years with no A threats.

    They should have, in my opinion, wrapped this A story back in season 3-4, had a new mystery that happens in Rosewood then in the season 6 finale have them all get another text from A which would lead to season 7 which would be the final season. This Charles plot line seems like it was pulled from a hat of possible endings by the showrunners.

  7. rachel vaughn says:

    I hope Spencer and tidy get married and Hanna has a baby.

  8. tdwp says:

    I just want to know who the hell A is

  9. Kimmy says:

    My question is why the girls always have to end up with someone. Why can’t they just be independent, without a relationship? That includes Emily, and especially Aria. Their relationship has been dragged on for years.

    • Radha says:

      Why do they have to end up with someone? Because most people like seeing romance on television dramas. They should have separate interests from their love lives, but I never get these comments that seem to be so anti love or relationships. Most people long for companionship. You can be a strong female and still be in love.

      • Kimmy says:

        Well, I get that too. But it seems like that’s all the fans care about anymore rather than their interests and even well being. I’m not anti-love/relationships at all. Most of what I see anymore is all about the relationships and that’s not what the show was about in the first place. The producers even dislike how it’s all the fans care about anymore and I’m pretty sure Marlene has tweeted about that.

      • jenniferyterry says:

        I agree with you. Right after college so they’d only be what 22, 23? Why do they have to be married and pregnant already? Take some time to be single and enjoy life. It’s more fun to watch that to me than just people sitting at home being in love.

        • Kimmy says:

          I’m really glad you agree with me! I would love to see at least two of them not in a relationship, or maybe even 3 of them. It’s just so odd to me why romance is such a big deal. They have bigger things going on in their life besides dating.

        • A is for Alive says:

          Who the heck said they were getting pregnant/married?

          {BOOK SPOILER}


          The books end with them all in relationships, except Emily, and Hanna even gets married. So At least fast-forwarding to them being in their early/mid-twenties isn’t as big of a stretch as 17/18 year olds in serious relationships. Aria is obviously going to end up with Ezra by the series end, so she’s stretching her dating legs. Let’s not forget it’s a 5-year jump, which means Aria could be like “I only dated 2 guys in 5 years!” We don’t even know if the guys being cast are love interests, they could be friends. Lastly, aside from a few here-and-there scenes, we rarely see long-lasting romance between any couple on PLL or any show. It’s usually surrounded by sorrow, tragedy, drama, lies, etc. On True Blood, the writers used to say that “couples weren’t allowed to be happy because it’s boring” and that pretty much is the case for most shows.

  10. Sarah j says:

    Aria will be in publishing and Hanna will be in the fashion industry.

  11. B says:

    Spencer better be a damn doctor or something as fabulous maybe a lawyer like mommy married to Toby while Emily is a coach, Aria a writer/publisher pining for Ezra, Alison dead, and Hannah married to Caleb looking fab working in the fashion industry

  12. also i think spencer will end up as a drug dealer or in rehab or a lawyer

  13. i see emily and paige getting married

  14. chezcrisden says:

    they will all be working and in college, maybe aria and ezra will get married and have kids, still trying to find out who A is…

  15. uuuu says:

    spencer would be a pharmacist. lol

  16. duaa says:

    first of all i’m team spoby 4 life they will get married

  17. Alyssa says:

    ok i know that ezria has been going on the entire time but that just means that they should tay together like for real we have had new guys and they sucked andrew like come on now and karate kid was ok but i could not see them together and if liam is ariahs new bf i hope tgey break up beacuaes she relizes that ezra is her soul mate

    But no matter what i wont stop watching :)

    • A says:

      If you dont know how to spell the names (“ariah”) or who the heck Holton (“the karate kid”) you shouldnt be commenting.

      • Mzchris (@chrispag13) says:

        lol I think they were trying to refer to Jake not Holden (as the Karate kid) bc Aria wasn’t ever actually with Holden romantically. But you’re so right! How do you not know names or the correct spellings if you’re a fan?! I am hoping the person is like 9 years old and still learning Language Arts (as they call it now a days) lesson 101 All I’s should be capitalized as well the first letter of some ones name…. your teacher can thank me later ;-)

      • Rosie says:

        His names actually Holden:) Maybe your the one who should check your comment:)

  18. Alyssa says:

    I know That ezria has been going on for a long time because they are soul mates man jake /karate kid i never like and andrew like come on ariah deserves better and if andrew really cared about ariah he would have been there with ezra caleb and toby looking for the girl not acted all shady spying on spencer’s mom and yes i know andrew isnt A! ok any way i want to see ezria have a baby like really badly and if liam is ariah’s bf i hope they break up

    P.s i think spencer should date toby but maybe liam is her new bf because after all spencer has a thing with smart intelligent british boys lol:)

    But no matter what ill keep on watching :)#pll4life

  19. Gerry says:

    I want Aria to have Ezra in five years.

  20. Savannah says:

    I honestly really hate the time jump idea. I wish they would just have the girls in college and then time jump I guess at the end of season 6 into season 7. I’ve been a loyal viewer since season one but I think this might make me stop watching.

  21. Holly says:

    Why does Alison look prego this season?

  22. Joy Arend says:

    Would like to see them as a group open a business in Rosewood. A private detective and investigation agency. I would want Spencers married to Toby. Aria married to her teacher. Caleb and Hanna married. Allison married to the black cop. Emily married to her latest girlfriend from the swim team. I think the girls are good with solving mysteries so they would do well being detectives in the private industry.

  23. jenniferyterry says:

    I see Aria working in fashion and Hanna working in publishing. We got some clues that she’s smarter than she puts on. I hope they all get new starts with relationships. Most of us didn’t marry our high school boyfriends so I hope they branch out a bit.

  24. Kristal says:

    I just hope Hanna stays with Caleb, Aria Getz back with Ezra, Spencer with Toby and that Emily gets c in a relationship that makes her happy and sticks!

  25. Abby says:

    IF SPENCER AND TOBY DON’T GET MARRIED, THEN MY LIFE IS RUINED

  26. Yontae says:

    Hannah as a detective would be amazing!

  27. arina says:

    I really want to know who A is!! And about time jump i don’t know about Hanna,Aria or Spencer but i am sure em will be the one who is going to be with someone new. She is the one in the show with more relationship other had.

  28. Mia says:

    I think that Aria is going to end up with Ezria or Jason!!

  29. Lily says:

    What is this stuff about Toby is going to meet a girl named Yvonne? And shes going to make a move on him? Do you have anything about this? 😂

  30. abbie says:

    All i need is for nothing bad to go in between hanna and caleb.

  31. Carly says:

    I reckon Emily will join the army

  32. Many of us believe that Maya should return and not only save Emily from -A, but also save her from a the ‘FAKE’ lesbian wannabes out there, especially Paige and Sara.

    We want to see Emily & Maya get engaged and either in season 7, or maybe in the long talked about PLL Movie, see Emily & Maya have a Fairy Tale wedding together.

    Everyone knows that PLL’s highest ratings and viewership was when Emily & Maya were together, and that when Paige replaced Maya, the show lost 50% of its viewers and the same in ratings.

    We also believe that with Maya gone, a PLL Movie would be a HUGE failure, because fans will not spend their money to see Emily with anyone but Maya.

    • Patti says:

      You do realize that Emily is only one of the actors and not even one of the better ones…. she certainly couldn’t carry the show on her own..and yes I’d pay to watch the movie without Maya, she was a good character, but honestly I can’t stand Paige or Sara either…

    • Patti says:

      and viewership going down 50% after Maya was killed…yeah, no! Didn’t happen, this show has only grown stronger in the ratings!

  33. Why do people continue to claim that Emily loves Alison? Emily never loved Alison; Alison came on to Emily when she was about 13 years old, because we believe that Alison suspected that Emily liked girls and wanted to prove it.

    Alison came on to Emily to see what Emily would do, and when she was satisfied that Emily was interested in girls because Emily returned her ‘FAKED’ affection, Alison made it clear to Emily that she was only attracted to guys, and that she only kissed her as practice for kissing guys, or did you forget that?

    Alison is Straight, not Bi, and definitely not a Lesbian!

    Paige wasn’t a REAL Lesbian either! Hell, she couldn’t even get to First Base with Emily, and even their kisses were closed-mouth and LAME; when Emily & Maya kissed, they were usually Tongue Kissing and you could see and feel the passion between them.

    Emily always seemed relieved when Paige was leaving, whereas she was always blushing when Maya showed up and could not wait to be alone with her. Let’s also not forget the Emaya Eye Sexing that only the two of them had.

    Maya was Emily’s First Girlfriend, her First Love, and the only girl that Emily loves.

    I can guarantee you that if Maya returns, the shows ratings and viewership will easily double or even triple in no time, and that it will be easier to make a PLL Movie if fans know that Emily & Maya are together.

  34. katy says:

    Spencer hastings time jump will be with toby and her twin and her mother

  35. jenai says:

    i think that hanna will get married to caleb. they have been through a lot of things and right now they’re about to graduate and go to prom so, hakeb should get married. i also thibk that aria will start design and fashion. she already does photofraphy so it wont be hard for her to pick up on fashion.

  36. Ishrah Marie says:

    i think Toby and Spencer would still be together, tho Toby’s gonna be like a detective and Spencer will have their family company, Emily would be a couch for swimming and maybe she and Ali would be together, and Ali would be writer slash have a work in the fashion industry,
    Hanna i think would be a cool designer married to Caleb who would be some kind of techno guy, Aria would be a photographer and a fashion critic, and i still think she and Ezra would still be together, and well you know Ezra’s work, and his a famous author.

  37. lucy resander says:

    this so annoying i hate having to wait till tommorow to know A is ( a.k.a. charles) is. i just want to know already.

  38. queerbec says:

    Alison is in a convent atoning for her family’s sins.

  39. jorie says:

    I think mrs D’s killer is Toby,because I think he found out mrs D covered up his mother’s death, that why jena and the other girl were meeting up with him the person jena was meeting up w was toby thats why they didnt show his face, and jena and toby and the other girl all had something in common they hate allison jena wants revenge for what happened to her and so does toby wants revenge bc of his mother,that why he killed mrs D, and joined the police force to cover his tracks,at the season 6 finale when alison is told “he is coming for you .”I think there talking abt toby.

  40. Mel says:

    I think that hanna and caleb and aria and ezra should be together
