The mermaid-themed drama series -- which ranks as the network's most watched show among adults 18-49 and women 18-49 -- returns for the second half of its second season June 13, said network officials. The series stars Eline Powell, Alex Roe, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Ian Verdun and Rena Owen.

The network will also begin airing episodes from all 30 seasons of the classic animated series The Simpsons -- which Disney acquired as part of its purchase of 21st Century Fox's  entertainment assets --beginning in September, the network said. 

Freeform also released trailers for several of its original series, including Motherland: Fort Salem, which is set in an alternative America where witches ended their persecution over 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the government to fight for their country. 

Also on tap for Freeform is Party of Five, a reboot of the popular 1990s series, which follows five Acosta children as they navigate daily life struggles to survive as a family after their parents are deported back to Mexico. 

Also, comedy series Everything's Gonna Be Okay, from Please Like Me creator Josh Thomas, follows a twenty-something man who has to care for his two teenage half-sisters after his father reveals that he is terminally ill.
