The Pretty Little Liars are back! Well, two of them are, and they're on a brand-new show dubbed Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists. After the original series ended, I. Marlene King let us know a spinoff was in the works — after a year and a half of waiting, we finally have an official trailer.
Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish will return as Alison DiLaurentis and Mona Vanderwaal, respectively, and they'll be joined by a new all-star cast. And judging by the preview, the spinoff will bring us a whole lot of the same spookiness as the original.
In addition to the trailer, Freeform officially announced The Perfectionists premiere date, so we can start planning our watch parties now!
Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, aka the official spinoff of your favorite Freeform show, just dropped its first trailer.
The trailer keeps things pretty mysterious, in true PLL fashion, but right away, it become clear that Alison is wrestling with some pretty powerful philosophical questions. For example, is it OK to murder a murderer?
Yes, two of the OG liars star in the spinoff: Sasha Pieterse as the one and only Alison DiLaurentis and Janel Parrish as Mona Vanderwaal.
These two have a lot of history, so it'll be pretty interesting to see how they get along in the new series.
The show will take place in Beacon Heights, a seemingly perfect little college town in the Pacific Northwest.
Of course, Rosewood seemed perfect, too, before A came along. Then, well, you know what happened.
Because this is Pretty Little Liars, the series will kick off with a brutal murder on campus, obviously.
If you're wondering where the heck Emily and the twins are, it will all be explained when you watch the show, apparently. Alison appears to be unpacking a photo of them in the trailer.
Alison, Emily, and the twins were all living together happily when Pretty Little Liars ended, if you remember correctly. According to I. Marlene King, the twins, who were infants when the original series ended, will be toddlers when the show premieres.
As for the rest of the characters, you'll have to watch the show to find out!
So far these are the only other roles we know: Chris Mason will play Nolan Hotchkiss, Noah Gray-Cabey will play Mason, Garrett Wareing will play Zach, Nick Cassidy will play Luke, and Phillip Rhys will play Michael.
Similar to the original series, The Perfectionists is based on a book by Sara Shepard.
However, the book has no connection to the Pretty Little Liars series. It's an entirely new story about a group of perfectionists who come up with a plan to murder womanizer Nolan.
