Freeform dropped the first trailer for the Pretty Little Liars spinoff “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists,” starring Sasha Pieterse as Alison, Janel Parrish as Mona, and Sofia Carson (Disney’s “Descendants”) as Ava. The new drama will also feature Sydney Park (“The Walking Dead”) as Caitlin, newcomer Eli Brown as Dylan, Graeme Thomas King (“The Widow”) as Jeremy, Kelly Rutherford (“Gossip Girl”) as Claire, and Hayley Erin (“General Hospital”). The new series will be the latest expansion of the “Pretty Little Liars” universe, and Freeform has a 10 episode season waiting to launch this Spring.
The story picks up in Beacon Heights, where a group of three college friends struggle with the stress of being overachievers. In the aftermath of the town’s first murder, each Perfectionist hides behind a secret, a lie and an alibi. Like its predecessor, “Pretty Little Liars,” which was a number-one on the New York Times bestseller list, “The Perfectionists” is also based on a popular book series penned by Sara Shepard. If you haven’t read the original yet, or if you want to check out the other works by Sara Shepard, you can find her books right here on Amazon.
Fans of the original “Pretty Little Liars” series can watch the first trailer below; the series is launching on Freeform on March 20th.
“Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” is produced by Alloy Entertainment and Long Lake Media, in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television. I. Marlene King (“Pretty Little Liars,” “Famous in Love”) wrote the pilot and serves as executive producer on the series with Charlie Craig (“Pretty Little Liars,” “The 100”), Lisa Cochran-Neilan (“Pretty Little Liars,” “Famous in Love”), Leslie Morgenstein (“Pretty Little Liars,” “The Vampire Diaries”) and Gina Girolamo (“The 100,” “The Originals”).
