Though she’s on a new show and network, Pretty Little Liars alum Lucy Hale is still contending with matters of life and death. Hale stars in the upcoming Life Sentence, a new series from Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith, where she plays Stella, a former manic pixie dream girl-type whose life gets a lot more complicated after she enters cancer remission. The CW’s just announced via press release that the series will premiere March 7 at 9 p.m. ET, after a new episode of Riverdale.
Life Sentence centers on Stella, who’s spent the last eight years living freely because she thought she was dying, and now she has to deal with a husband and family who had already kind of reconciled themselves with her impending death. But all of this will presumably play out with a much lighter tone, even though her parents (played by Dylan Walsh and Gillian Vigman) spent their retirement money helping her live it up. Oh, and her brother uses her cancer diagnosis to manipulate the soccer moms he sells ADHD drugs to, and her sister got married and had a baby to give their parents something “positive to focus on” while thinking they were watching their daughter waste away.
In other CW show news, iZombie will premiere February 26, right after Legends Of Tomorrow returns. The Originals debuts its final season on April 20, while Jane The Virgin’s season finale is set for April 13.
