I know, I know – you’re going to tell me that Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin is not the same as Pretty Little Liars. I get that. I do. But I still feel like it’s too early for more Pretty Little Liars in any form.
And that being said, I can be bitter, but I will still watch it.
What’s the show about? Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in the present day, a group of disparate teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago…as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: ORIGINAL SIN, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars.
HBO Max had previously cast Chandler Kinney and Maia Reficco to the Max original. Lisa Soper (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) will direct the first two episodes of the series from Warner Bros. Television.
And now they have added a new cast member, which I have to admit is the reason that I am going to watch. Bailee Madison has joined the cast as Imogen. Imogen is described as, “a true survivor. Imogen is a final girl. She will drive the mystery of uncovering “A” as she fights for her life and the lives of her friends.”
The series is scheduled to begin production later this summer at Upriver Studios in New York.
Are you excited for the show? What are your thoughts on rebooting Pretty Little Liars so soon?
