ABC Family is gearing up for the New Year with new episodes of its highly anticipated series, including Pretty Little Liars, Twisted, Switched at Birth and The Fosters-- all of which are sticking to its original Monday and Tuesday schedule.

Pretty Little Liars will kick off with new episodes on Tuesday, January 7 at 8pm ET/PT. The network's flagship series will explore Ezra's darker side as Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hannah continue to seek answers about Alison and try to solve the mystery that is "A" beginning with the episode "Who's in the Box?" which is the 14th installment of season 4. 

When the show last left off, Ezra was noticeably upset after realizing the girls were in A's lair, leading viewers to suspect that he is A. Hopefully, more clues and answers will be provided in the annual Halloween episode of Pretty Little Liars, airing on Tuesday, October 22 at 8pm ET/PT. This episode, which will follow the girls as they crash the Ravenswood Founders Day Celebration in attempt to find Alison, will also serve as a lead-in to the premiere of the spin-off series Ravenswood at 9pm.

Twisted is expected to return on Tuesday, January 7 at 9pm ET/PT. As the town of Green Grove continues to suspect that Danny killed Regina, especially since he's now on the run. Meanwhile, Tess calls Danny's father, who faked his own death, back to town.

Season 3 of Switched at Birth is set to premiere on Monday, January 13 at  8pm ET/PT. The new season, which will bring huge changes for Bay and Daphne now that they are seniors, will feature guest stars such as RJ Mitte, Max Adler, Sandra Bernhard and Alec Mapa.

The Fosters, on the other hand, will resume on  Monday, January 13 at  9pm ET/PT with the episode "The Honeymoon," which picks up right after the summer cliffhanger and explore the repercussions of Callie's decision to run away.

Meanwhile, fans who need to catch up on their favorite ABC Family series will have a chance to do so through special marathons, kicking off with previous episodes of The Fosters on Tuesday, December 31 from 11am to 6pm. The network will air the Twisted marathon on Wednesday, January 1 starting 11am to 6pm. Pretty Little Liars will air repeat episodes on Tuesday, January 7 at 12pm to 8pm, leading up to the premiere. Last but not the least, Switched at Birth fans can catch up with previous episodes on  Monday, January 13 from 12pm to 8pm just in time for the premiere.
