Based on the novel by Rebecca Serle, Famous in Love stars Thorne as new Hollywood “It” girl, Paige Townsen, who is plucked from obscurity and thrust into the limelight as the star of the fictional film Locked. Charlie DePew, Georgie Flores, Carter Jenkins, Niki Koss, Keith Powers, Pepi Sonuga and Perrey Reeves also star.
“It's great to know we are just getting started on this wild and fun Hollywood ride called Famous in Love,” said executive producer Marlene King. “I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to dive deeper into the world and characters we fell in love with last season.”
Back in June, Thorne urged fans to keep the conversation alive on social media, saying "of course" she'd want to continue telling this story.
"There's so much growing room for our characters to do, definitely," she said when she visited ET’s Burbank studio at the time. "Keep tweeting it, keep supporting it to the very end. That always gets the writers and the network super excited. The more we get hyped about Famous in Love, the more Famous in Love you will see."
The entire first season debuted simultaneously via On Demand and Freeform's digital platforms. According to Freeform, Famous in Love drew nearly 29 million total views across digital and traditional platforms to date, and is the network’s No. 1 current original series among women 18-34.
