Two weeks ago, ABC Family debuted the official poster for season four and now, The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts the first footage of the new summer episodes with a brand new promo.
The 30-second teaser, which officially debuts on ABC Family the week of May 13, picks up moments following the aftermath of the fire that threatened the four Liars’ lives. “She set us up,” Aria (Lucy Hale) says to her friends. Who is “she”? Likely the troublesome and omnipresent “A” or Red Coat, who is proving to be just as problematic for the girls.
“I need to find out who Red Coat is,” Mona (Janel Parrish) tells the foursome. “She tried to kill all of us.” Is Mona newly reformed? Is she back on the Liars’ side now?Later Aria, Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) recite yet another text from “A,” but this time Mona’s in on it as well. The offending message? “The truth won’t set you free. I’m going to be bury you with it. — A.” Before Emily gets a worrisome text (or photo?): “Oh my god …”
Flashes of a teary Aria in camouflage, the girls in various states of distress (are you surprised?), Toby (Keegan Allen) hiding in the bushes, a tarped body, a crazed driver and Emily pushing someone to safety. What was in the trunk of Detective Wilden’s police car? Is that why the Liars are all dressed in black?
