Freeform Releases Its New Lineup of TV & Movie Offerings for April 2018

Freeform announces its programming schedule for April 2018, which will include new episodes of the mermaid drama "Siren" (premiering Thursday, March 29), supernatural series "Shadowhunters," and the second season premiere of fan-favorite "Famous In Love."

Season two of "Famous In Love" kicks off a few months after the events of the finale. Production on "Locked" has been put on hold, and during this time, the cast has worked on other projects, which puts a strain on an already tense set when production resumes.

Additional programming arriving to Freeform this month includes the Freeform premieres of "Puss in Boots," "The House Bunny," "We Bought A Zoo," "Con Air" and "Made of Honor."

Below is a complete list of what's new on Freeform, beginning April 1 to the network and Freeform app.
