ABC Family Is Changing Their Name To…

RIP, ABC Family. The network you can count on for a monthly Harry Potter weekend or Pretty Little Liars marathons is changing their name come January 2016. ABC Family released a video on their Twitter page announcing the name change to Freeform.


Don’t freak out – it’s just a name swap. You’ll still be able to turn to ABC Family when you’re in need of some feel-good movies after class as well as their original shows like The Fosters, Baby Daddy, and Shadowhunters.
It seems like the switch is in an effort to attract younger views.
“Freeform evokes the spirit and adventure of our audience,” ABC Family president Tom Ascheim said in a statement. “Freeform will deliver new, exciting original content as well as all the favorite shows our viewers already love on ABC Family.”
I think we’ll all survive. It seems like just yesterday I was a responsibility-free kid watching S Club 7 on Fox Family. Fox Family, ABC Family, Freeform…what’s in a name?
