 The future is now.

Pretty Little Liars fans, get ready to jump five years ahead! The ABC Family hit series' is set to give fans their  first look at the highly anticipated five-year time-jump in tonight's special, "Flash-Forward." In the special, showrunner Marlene King will get the inside scoop from stars Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Troian BellisarioShay Mitchell and more (including the PLL guys!) about what their characters have been up to since ending "A"'s game and graduating high school. (We've seen the special and prepare thyselves for so. Much. Information.)

When we chatted with the stars and executive producers at New York Comic-Con, we asked them to play PLL time-jump superlatives, picking one of the five Liars—Aria, Emily, Hanna, Spencer and Alison—for an assortment of titles, including the happiest girl, the most changed and the biggest partier.

Plus, we got updates on the Liars' love lives...and yes, one of them is currently swiping in Rosewood...

Most Isolated
Benson: Emily
Hale: Emily
Bellsario: Emily
King: Alison and Emily
Dougherty: Emily

Whose Style Mas Changed the Most
Benson: Hanna
Hale: Aria because she's a lot more toned down. She's still got elements of being quirky and weird, but she's grown a lot in that area. 
Bellsario: I think everybody's style has changed in the appropriate way, but equally.
King: It's hard because they're grown up versions of themselves. But probably Emily because she's less tomboy-ish now and a little bit more chic.
Dougherty: It depends who you talk to, but I think Spencer.

Who Has Changed the Most Overall
Benson: All the girls
Hale: That's a tough one...maybe Alison.
Bellsario: Alison
King: Alison
Dougherty: Spencer

Facebook Relationship Status:
Aria: "She's dating and I want to say she's happy; she's in love," Hale spilled. "But there's always that you're never really sure if she's faking it or if it's real. But she's in a relationship." 
Spencer: While she's "married to her career,"  Bellsario shared, "Spencer is single." She then joked that Spencer is active on Tinder. "She's experiencing a lot of Tinder. She's not even paying attention anymore, she's just always swiping right, like, ‘Sorry, what? I'm meeting someone at four for coffee? Can you speed it up?'"
Hanna: Engaged! And Benson revealed she actually picked out Hanna's ring...with some help. "Shay [Mitchell] actually helped me choose it," adding that her main criteria was whichever "the biggest one was!"
Emily: Single. 
Alison: Who would've thought Alison would be the only Liar happily married?!

Pretty Little Liars' "Flash-Forward" special airs tonight at 8 p.m., while season 6B premieres on Tuesday, Jan. 12 on Freeform, the new name of the ABC Family network.
