The original Pretty Little Liars, based on the novel series of the same name by Sara Shepard, details the lives of four high school girls whose lives are turned upside-down when the leader of their clique disappears and they start being taunted by a mysterious villain called “A.” The show ran for seven seasons from 2010-2017, and to capitalise on its success, Freeform launched two spinoffs out of the franchise — Pretty Little Liars: Ravenswood (2014) and Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists (2019). Each lasted a single season.
The new reboot of PLL, penned by Aguirre-Sacasa, is said to feature a new story and new characters. While the show hasn't found a home at a network yet, sources told THR that Warner Bros. TV are gunning for HBO Max, which is currently beefing up its YA programming with a reboot of late aughts classic Gossip Girl. Pretty Little Liars is also streaming on HBO Max should you want to watch some PLL immediately.
Once again: Pretty Little Liars, a show that ended three years ago, is getting a reboot.
