For years, "Pretty Little Liars" fans were held captive by anonymous stalker "A" and their increasingly bizarre and nonsensical evil plans. We thought we said goodbye to A and the whole "Pretty Little Liars" gang earlier this year, but it turns out that was just another red herring (God, this show loves red herrings. Remember the NAT club? Sara Harvey? UGH).
That's right: There's a "Pretty Little Liars" spinoff coming to Freeform. Be prepared for more human teeth being turned into bracelets and text messages that use the word "bitch" more than any normal human being would.
The new show will be called "The Perfectionists," and it'll feature the most perfect characters from the show: Alison and Mona!
Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish will both reprise their roles. Showrunner I. Marlene King is coming back as well.
But they aren't staying in Rosewood. Instead, the show will be set in an all new town, Beacon Heights, "where nothing is as it appears to be."
According to the press release, "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.”
Karey Burke, executive vp programming and development at Freeform, said,"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. 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."
SO. MUCH. EXCITEMENT.
While there's no word yet on when the pilot will debut, we're already coming up with theories to explain how Mona and Alison end up in the same weird town. Did Mona trick Alison into moving there? Is A back and playing both of them? Did the two actually end up murdering yet another person?
Whatever. As long as this isn't another "Ravenswood," we're in.
