Pretty Little Liars is gearing up for that insane five-year time jump when the show returns in January 2016 – and Shay Mitchell tells ET it’s going to be ”jaw-dropping.”
And while fans can obviously expect a ton of changes with the fast-forward pick-up, the 28-year-old actress reveals that ‘Emison’ fans have something to look forward to.
“Emison fans – I think they’re gonna have fun this next season seeing what me and Sasha (Alison DiLaurentis) are getting up to and what our characters are doing,” she says, adding, “I think they’re going to be happy with it.”
But does "happy" mean we can expect some more romance between Emily and Alison?
“We’ll see… possibly, “ Shay answers. “We’ll see, yes.”
WE. CAN’T. WAIT.

A’s identity was finally revealed during the mid-season finale – CECE DRAKE. And Shay says she was just as surprised by the twist as the rest of us.
“I mean, honestly, I was shocked,” she says. “We got into the table read and we were just kind of flipping through it and I was like, 'What?! It's CeCe? This is crazy.’"
But Shay adds she loved how the explosive reveal played out and is even more anxious for viewers to see what’s next.
“It was super fun to see all the fans reactions… I loved our season finale,” she explains. “And what we’re shooting right now is even more fun, so it’s great.”
Shay was on-hand at Thursday night’s Streamy Awards, and while she admits to posting a ton of content on platforms like Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter, there are a few topics that are off limits for her.
“Things that I don’t want to talk about, you know… If I’m not posting about relationships then you can’t really ask me about it. There’s kind of a fine line with that sort of thing,” she explains, adding, “I try to keep my private life private, and what I’m willing to share, I’m more than happy to put out there.”
Pretty Little Liars returns to ABC Family in January.
