Come one, come all, and gather round!
ABC Family will no longer be called ABC Family! The change is to hit the target audience of 14-34, and to revamp the station, which will continue to have the originals that the fans know and love, along with some new content.
The station will be called Freeform as of 2016, and some of the stars from ABC Family's favorite shows popped in to tease the change-over in a video clip.

Well, honestly - we think this is great. Mostly because when they play the movie Burlesque with Cher and Christina Aguilera, it always becomes a topic of discussion that the channel is called ABC FAMILY.
Onward and upward, ABC!
