This page is about the first season of the TV show, which aired in 2010. See also Pretty Little Liars (disambiguation) and Pretty Little Liars (disambiguation) (disambiguation).
I. Marlene King created the American teen drama mystery-thriller television series Pretty Little Liars. The series depicts the lives of five best friends whose clique comes apart after its leader Alison vanishes.
It is partially based on Sara Shepard’s novel series of the same name. Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily are reunited a year later after receiving letters from a mysterious individual known only as “A” who threatens to reveal their greatest secrets.
Troian Bellisario portrays Spencer Hastings, Lucy Hale portrays Aria Montgomery, Ashley Benson portrays Hanna Marin, Shay Mitchell portrays Emily Fields, Sasha Pieterse portrays Alison DiLaurentis, and Janel Parrish portrays Mona Vanderwaal.
It is the first of the Pretty Little Liars franchise’s two spin-offs, Ravenswood and Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, both of which were cancelled after one season.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin received a series order from HBO Max in September 2020, focusing on a new cast of characters in a different environment.
Chandler Kinney and Maia Reficco, among others, were cast as the stars of this revival back in July 2021, according to Harper’s Bazaar. Kinney will play Tabby, a “aspiring director and movie aficionado,” in the film.
She is most known for her roles in Lethal Weapon and Zombies 2. Reficco, on the other hand, will play Noa, who is described as “a striving, sardonic track star trying to bring her life back to normal after a summer spent in juvenile jail.” Her most recent films include Kally’s Mashup and Evita.
HBO Max released the remainder of the key cast on March 8th through EW. Bailee Madison, best known for her role on Once Upon a Time, will play Imogen, a “sugary sweet young mom.” She also discussed her initial reluctance about joining the reboot series, despite being a long-time fan of the original.
“I immediately recognised that it’s not a reboot of the original, but rather a reimagining of what worked so well and what people liked, but we’re leaning into the horror and mystery of it all,” she says.
Malia Pyles of FX’s Baskets fame will play Minnie, Zaria of Two Distant Stangers fame will play Faran, and Mallory Bechtel of Hereditary fame will play a high school bully suitably named Karen.
The enigmatic “A” will appear in the series as well, although their true identity will be revealed much later (possibly many seasons).
Though no one associated with the reboot has made an official announcement or confirmation, Aguirre-reference Sacasa’s of “Easter eggs” leads us to suspect that we will see some known faces from the original series at some point. “Having the original Liars on would be incredibly incredible,” Madison said of the idea to EW.
Where Can I Watch Pretty Little Liars in The Year 2021?
Our little liars have made their way over to HBO Max, where word has it that they have a casket full of all seven seasons.
You read that correctly: HBO Max allows you to watch Pretty Little Liars from the beginning and see all of the show’s jaw-dropping, legendary moments, including the reveal of who the mysterious A is.
You may have to wait a little longer for the spinoff series, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, to be available to stream.
The fascinating saga’s sequel is now available on Freeform, but with its demise in 2019, it’s unclear whether HBO Max will add the series to its portfolio to complete the collection. On the plus side, a Rosewood-inspired show is set to premiere on the streaming platform.
The next reboot, Pretty Little Liars: The Original Sin, has been ordered by HBO Max, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and while there is no official release date yet, here’s a quick summary of the exciting new series:
The second instalment appears to be a fun time full of mystery and excitement, but nothing beats the original blueprint that started it all.
On HBO Max, you can watch Pretty Little Liars right now.
According to HBO Max’s initial statement, “twenty years ago, a series of tragic events nearly broke the blue-collar village of Millwood apart,” the logline reads. “Now, in the current day, a group of mismatched teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — are tormented by an unknown Assailant and forced to pay for their parents’ secret sin from two decades ago…as well as their own.” (Notice how the “A” is emphasised in the statement.)
More information regarding the reboot was disclosed in Entertainment Weekly on March 8, 2022, with the publication unveiling the reboot series’ first look photographs, which featured the new cast looking stunned in various ways.
The new show, according to the creator, will be significantly darker than the original. It will, however, remain focused on their friendship and how they are affected by a series of anonymous, horrific texts.
This will also take place in a different location, Millwood, Pennsylvania, which is a town miles away from Rosewood, the setting for the first series. “We wanted a fresh cast of characters, a new town, a new set of mysteries, and a new ‘A,'” Aguirre-Sacasa explained. “We are enthralled by the fact that Rosewood exists. We make a reference to it. Easter eggs can be found all throughout the season.”
He also discussed the decision to introduce new characters rather than recasting the original series’ five characters. He explained, “We very intentionally declared it didn’t continue with the original characters.” “To tell you the truth, the first series was so memorable. It felt like a losing proposition to ask them to adopt a new Aria or a new Spencer.”
