'Pretty Little Liars': All-day marathon leading to mid-season premiere airs on Monday January 3

(Press Release) Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer and those around them must deal with the aftermath of what happened in Rosewood, PA one mysterious night, in "Moments Later," the mid-season premiere of ABC Family's hit original series "Pretty Little Liars," premiering Monday, January 3rd (8:00 - 9:00 PM ET/PT). Viewers can catch up on all the mystery when the network airs nine back-to-back episodes from the summer's season from 11:00AM-8:00PM ET/PT, leading into that night's mid-season premiere.

Moments after Hanna is hit by a car, the girls' world is turned upside down. "A" is no longer content playing a game of cat and mouse - things have taken a far more ominous turn and now more than ever the four Pretty Little Liars have to turn to each other for support. With Hanna in the hospital and armed with the information of who "A" is, the girls are backtracking to figure out how they got to this point. How could this person know everything and want to use it against them?

Meanwhile, each girl has to also deal with a secret that is either found out, confessed or confronted - proving that secrets are still abound in Rosewood, PA.
