The renewal for the season was announced on April 21, 2017, during a live chat on Facebook with the cast.[2]

The writers began to officially meet to work on the season on May 30, 2017.[76][77] On July 20, 2017 at SDCC, it was announced that Alisha Wainwright was promoted to series regular as Maia Roberts.[78][79] On October 7, 2017 at NYCC, it was announced that Freeform officially ordered the additional 10 episodes (3B) to air in the summer of 2018,[80] meaning there will be little to no hiatus after episode 10 and the whole season will air in 2018.[81] The original premiere date that was announced was the 3rd of April, before it was announced in December that the premiere had been moved to the 20th of March,[1] two weeks earlier than the original plan.

Filming began on August 21, 2017 and is expected to run until May 15, 2018.[82][83][84][85] Production took a break on December 6, 2017,[86][87] and will resume on January 22, 2018.[88]
