ABC Family is kicking off the New Year with the return of their hit dramas, and the network's stars gathered at the 25 Days of Christmas ice skating event at Rockefeller Center, dishing on what fans can expect in 2013.
Gilles Marini becomes a series regular on Switched at Birth in its second season, where his character is in hot water.
"In the season finale, we had this mystery woman come up and she's kind of saying that she's pregnant and she's looking for me," said Gilles. "Regina [played by Constance Marie] is not going to be happy about what comes in the beginning of season 2."
Pretty Little Liars stars Lucy Hale and Shay Mitchell teased new developments for their award-winning high school drama.
"What we have coming up is a lot of craziness," said Shay. "Basically A pushes the girls, each of them for different reasons, to their breaking point ... They're all kind of dealing with it in their own ways. I think some are dealing with their families more. Some are dealing with -- in Emily's case -- the murder."
"I guess the main thing this season is that Mona, who we've revealed as part of the A team, comes back to school," said Lucy, who called season 3 her favorite thus far. "So it's just, sort of, the girls adjusting to this new situation."
Switched at Birth returns Monday, January 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT while, Pretty Little Liars returns Tuesday, January 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
ABC Family's Bunheads and The Lying Game also return in the second week of January 2013. Watch the video to hear about Tia Mowry's Christmas musical, Mistle-Tones, and the stars' plans for the holidays.
