Jo continues to grapple with how much Danny and Lacey had been keeping from her, but is soon swept into the truth about what really happened to Danny's Aunt Tara. Meanwhile, Tess, being the only one who knows Danny's long-thought dead father is still alive, has summoned Vikram back to town, but even she is not aware of the depth of secrets the Desai family holds.

Other ABC Family series set to return in January include the previously announced premieres of "Pretty Little Liars," "Switched at Birth," and "The Fosters."

The hit ABC Family original series "Pretty Little Liars" returns on Tuesday, January 7, 2014, from 8:00 - 9:00 PM ET/PT.

Senior year means big changes for Bay and Daphne, as the Carlton School for the Deaf receives an influx of hearing students who are not happy to be there. Daphne begins working at a free clinic as part of her probation from the Senator Coto blackmail scandal, and Bay takes an art class at a local college. Toby tries to unite a divided Carlton by coaching girls' field hockey, and the parents face the specter of the impending empty nest in unexpected ways.

The repercussions of Callie's decision to run away impact every member of the Foster family, including newlyweds Stef and Lena, who had offered to adopt the troubled teen. Will Jude be able to accept the love of this family without his sister in the picture? And how will Brandon deal with the news that Callie has run away? Meanwhile, Jesus and Mariana prepare for the reality of Lexi leaving. Mike and Stef continue to deal with the fallout of the shooting, while Lena must come to terms with Stef returning to the force, post-shooting. How will Stef and Lena navigate all this chaos and change as a married couple?
