Announcing the Freeform Network’s Summer 2016 Lineup
Summer 2016 will test the mettle of the new Freeform Network. Tom Ascheim, the network’s president recently announced their exciting and innovative lineup for Summer 2016.
Leading the charge and premiering on June 1 at 8:00 pm EDT is “Young & Hungry” which returns with more episodes and more ups and downs in Gabi and Josh’s relationship! Starring Emily Osment, Jonathan Sadowski, Rex Lee, Aimee Carrero and Kym Whitley, viewers will find Gabi, still reeling from her discovery of Josh with his therapist. She meets a brokenhearted stranger (guest star Tyler Ritter) and they decide to commiserate together. Elliot and his husband Alan make a major life change, and Yolanda celebrates a big milestone.
Also premiering on June first is “Baby Daddy” which picks up right where it left off in the spring finale, with Ben finally deciding to be with Zoey (guest star Jonna Walsh), just as her son’s father reappears in her life. Novice entertainment reporter Tucker tries to further his career as Bonnie reunites with a relative she’d rather forget. “Baby Daddy” premieres Wednesday, June 1 at 8:30 p.m. EDT and stars Jon-Luc Bilodeau, Derek Theler, Tahj Mowry, Melissa Peterman and Chelsea Kane.

Next to premiere is Lionsgate TV and Thunderbird Films’, “Guilt” which will premiere June 13 at 9:00 EDT. Executive produced by Kathryn Price, Nichole Millard, Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, Larry Shaw and Stephen McPherson. “Guilt” will take a look at the murder of Molly Ryan where many people are guilty in different ways, but only one is truly guilty of her murder. In this one-hour soapy drama, the mystery will twist through all layers of London society – from a posh but depraved sex club and all the way up to the Royal Family itself. When Natalie’s sister Grace becomes the prime suspect in her roommate Molly’s murder, Natalie leaves her life in Boston and heads to London to defend her. With the help of an ethically questionable ex-pat lawyer Stan Gutterie, Natalie starts to question how innocent her sister may really be as more ugly truths start to emerge. “Guilt” stars Billy Zane, Emily Tremaine, Daisy Head, Cristian Solimeno, Naomi Ryan, Kevin Ryan, Zachary Fall, Simona Brown and Sam Cassidy.
Returning to Freeform on Monday, June 20 at 8:00 p.m. EDT, “The Fosters” picks up at the dramatic cliffhanger finale with Mariana’s emotionally devastated boyfriend Nick bringing a gun to school. Now that Callie’s moms know she slept with Brandon, Callie worries they may not want her to remain part of the family. “The Fosters” stars Teri Polo, Sherri Saum, Hayden Byerly, Noah Centineo, David Lambert, Maia Mitchell, Danny Nucci and Cierra Ramirez.
In the seventh season of the hit drama series “Pretty Little Liars”, the PLLs band together to unearth answers to the last remaining secrets and take down “Uber A” for good in the most romantic season of PLL yet. “Pretty Little Liars” stars Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Tyler Blackburn, Lucy Hale, Laura Leighton, Andrea Parker and Shay Mitchell. The veteran series premieres Tuesday, June 21 at 8:00 p.m. EDT.
“Dead of Summer” starring Elizabeth Mitchell, Elizabeth Lail, Zelda Williams, Mark Indelicato, Alberto Frezza, Eli Goree, Ronen Rubinstein, Amber Coney and Paulina Singer, is set in the late 1980s. School has just let out for the summer and a sun-drenched season of firsts beckons the counselors at Camp Stillwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses — and of course, first kills. Stillwater’s dark, ancient mythology awakens, and what was supposed to be a summer of fun soon turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn. From ABC Signature Studios and executive producers Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis, Ian Goldberg and Steve Pearlman, the series.
“Cheer Squad” which premieres Monday, August 22 at 10:00 p.m. EDT, will air nightly as a special two-week programming event! The Great White Sharks are a sisterhood, there for each other through first loves, new jobs, bad breakups, and everything in between. But they are also elite athletes, idolized by thousands and members of the best all-star cheerleading team in the world. “Cheer Squad” will follow the two-time World Cheerleading Champions on the long road to defending their title as they try to balance life off the mat with the all-consuming battle to stay on top.
