A Pretty Little Liars Spinoff Is Officially Happening. Here's Who'll Be Back
Pretty Little Liars fans who held out hope for more of the Liars on their screens just got their wish.
Just three months after the finale of the hit show, Freeform has officially greenlit a pilot for a PLL spinoff dubbed Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish will reprise their respective roles as Alison DiLaurentis and Mona Vanderwaal, in the new pilot, which will be based on Sara Shepard's book series The Perfectionists. PLL showrunner I. Marlene King is adapting the book.
"At Freeform, we are committed to delivering shows that push boundaries and become a part of our viewers' lives. Pretty Little Liars was a cultural phenomenon so it's no wonder fans wanted more," Karey Burke, executive vice president of programming and development at Freeform told the mag. "We can't wait to continue Marlene King's rich and revolutionary storytelling with a new crop of leading ladies from Beacon Heights who will hold just as many secrets and lies as Rosewood did."
King echoed those sentiments, saying in a statement, "I'm beyond excited to continue my collaboration with Sara Shepard, Alloy, Freeform and Warner Horizon."
She added, "I can't wait to introduce our fans—and Sasha and Janel—to a new world of thrills and chills in Beacon Heights."

As for what fans can expect from the show, Freeform said in a statement, "Everything about the town of Beacon Heights seems perfect, from their top-tier college to their overachieving residents. But nothing in Beacon Heights is as it appears to be. The stress of needing to be perfect leads to the town's first murder. Behind every Perfectionist is a secret, a lie and a needed alibi."
Juicy, right? We can't wait for another dose of PLL-inspired drama.
