Shay Mitchell is gearing up for the final season of Pretty Little Liars after six successful seasons. While the show is all about secret-keeping, Mitchell told FOX4 11 she doesn’t feel the need to keep everything private.

“Theres nothing that I feel like I have to hold back and be secretive, ” Mitchell told us. “When I am in a relationship and if things get out then it gets out. Youre going to find out about it regardless. Im not going to anything bad or something that I need to keep secret.”

Recently, the 29 -year-old was spotted with ET Canada Reporter Matte Babel but insisted they are nothing more than friends.


“It’s funny because I love this stuff and if I set something out on social media Im more than happy to answer questions about it. If I dont would like to speak about it its not on my social media. Weve known each other for nine years. We knew each other in Toronto. Like Drake and all them, its a Toronto crew. Were really, really awesome friends.”

At the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, inventor Marlene King revealed the fans have guided the reveal all along moving into the seventh season.

“These last 10 episodes are actually a love letter to the fans, ” King said. “We know why theyre loyal and what they want.”

And thinking back on the indicate and thinking back on the past year, the actress said the best advice she has learned is living the life you love.

“It’s like my biggest not revelation but what I got the most out of 2016 was the fact that life is so short and its truly about being grateful, about the most simple things yet not simple things, ” Mitchell shared.

“Pretty Little Liars” returns for it’s final season April 18 th on Freeform.
