The spinoff will be back in January with lead-in “Pretty Little Liars”
ABC Family is shifting its previously announced schedule to give “Ravenswood” back its “Pretty Little Liars” lead-in starting Tuesday, Jan. 7.
Meanwhile, that change will push “Twisted's” midseason return to Tuesday, Feb. 11 after “Ravenswood” finishes its first run.
“Ravenswood” premiered on Oct. 22 after the annual “Pretty Little Liars” Halloween special. It became ABC Family's highest-rated series premiere in the network's key demographic, women 18-34. It was also cable's biggest TV series debut in three years.
In Week 1, “Ravenswood” attracted 2.1 million total viewers. Among the channel's key demo, it earned 789,000 viewers and a 2.3 rating. ABC declined to furnish TheWrap Week 2 ratings pending L+3 numbers.
According to “Ravenswood” producer Joseph Dougherty, “Ravenswood” was meant to extend ratings winner “PLL's” brand year-round. This move represents a change in that strategy. Its midseason finale airs on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
