'Pretty Little Liars' Fan Theories Actually Influenced The Show


As Pretty Little Liars fans, we have seen a lot of sh*t go down in Rosewood over the past seven years.

I mean we basically know everything there is to know about the show's relationships, its biggest shocks, and all its friend group drama. And, as we inch closer and closer to the finale episode, we're about to find out the last piece of the PLL puzzle: Who A.D. is.

One thing many of us didn't know, though, was how heavily we as fans may have influenced the show's plot lines. Yea, you read that correctly. According to Marlene I. King, writer, producer, and director for Pretty Little Liars, fans played a part in determining which couples would end up together in the final season of the show.

In a recent interview with Vulture, King revealed exactly how fan theories and reactions on Twitter may have influenced the show. She told Vulture,

It's cool to think that, in some minor way, our hopes for the show helped to shape its outcomes.

Vulture went on to ask King if there were any longstanding questions that wouldn't be answered in the finale, to which the showrunner responded,

Tongue-in-cheek or not, I'm already wondering where the show will leave us hanging. Maybe if I tweet who I think A.D. should be there'll be enough time for them to fix the finale? Idk, get back to me, Marlene.
