There is something to be said about options. And thankfully, we've got nothing but options when it comes to a new series starring Bella Thorne. According to Bustle Editor Martha Sorren, who attended a screening of the upcoming show, viewers can watch all ten episodes of Famous In Love Season 1 on the premiere date April 18, 2017 on either Hulu or Freeform.com. Or if you're feeling like you want to go old-school, you can watch the episodes on a week-by-week basis on the Freeform channel. The series will continue airing the ten episodes on Tuesday nights until the series finale on June 20. The viewing style of the series from the Pretty Little Liars creator, I. Marlene King is up to you!
Famous In Love follows Paige Townsen, your average college student who's just trying to be continue being an average college student when her best friend convinces her to audition for a Hunger Games equivalent shot in Maui called Locked. The fresh-faced Paige wins the role out of thousands of girls, and her small-town life changes practically overnight. She goes from being unknown by the world to having to cover her face when in public to keep the paparazzi at bay. But that's not the only drama at play as Towsend has immediate chemistry with the two co-leads in Locked — both who were connected romantically in the past to a missing pop star. While navigating her newfound fame and trying to keep her old friendships strong, Paige also finds herself uncovering truths about the missing starlet. It's a lot for a young, new celebrity to take on.
The show, which is based on the novel of the same name by Rebecca Serle might just fill the hole in our hearts left by Pretty Little Liars. Serle told Bustle, “Our show is very different, but I do think it has that Marlene signature on it. It’s very fast-paced, it’s very plot-driven, it’s sexy. There’s a lot of 'OMG moments,' as we like to call them. So, I do think it will really appeal to [fans]."
The torment of Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily by consistent A's will finally end (probably) June 20. Though both shows, Famous in Love and the second half of PLL Season 7 will air alongside each other for this season, it can be assumed this new series will continue on for more and more seasons while we are definitely saying goodbye to Rosewood. Let's hope this glamorous new series can keep up! We'll find out officially tonight at 8 p.m. ET!
