‘Pretty Little Liars’ season 5 spoilers: Marlene King on more ‘romantic’ episodes

More scoop -If there is one thing that most fans on “Pretty Little Liars” enjoy almost as much as mystery, it is a good love story. There are many people out there who ‘ship couples on this show for this very reason!

While we cannot tell you just yet which couples are going to be in the spotlight this time around, executive producer Marlene King told “Entertainment Tonight” in a new interview that in a move to shake up the format of the show, she chose to front-load the mystery in the summer half of the show, and giving you some good stuff in the winter:

“This is really the season where we flip-flopped our cycles … Usually the summer season is more about the romance and sort of the ground work for the story that we then pay off on the flipside. But we essentially made the decision to change that kind of formula … We wanted to be fresh and fun and ride the mystery train in the summer cycle, and leave more room for fun, and romance, and a little bit lighter story this winter.”

When you remember everything that happened in the summer half of the show, we certainly cannot blame King for her approach here. Plus, did we really need to see another season dominated by shocking character deaths and other things that would leave your jaw on the ground? We’re not entirely sure that we did.

We’ll have more news on the show’s return tomorrow, so be on the lookout for more!
