The Pretty Little Liars reboot is coming, people. Here’s everything you need to know about ‘Original Sin’

There’s nothing we love more than a reboot of our fave TV shows, and the reincarnation of Pretty Little Liars is edging closer every day. 

A brand new teaser video Original Sin has just dropped – with a release date – and we are obsessed already. Especially seeing as the original series was basically all we spoke about during its seven-year run from 2010 to 2017.  Four years later, Pretty Little Liars is finally returning, and vital details are coming to light. 

Here’s everything we know about the reboot so far:

What is the Pretty Little Liars reboot called?

It’ll be named Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, according to Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who confirmed the news in an Instagram post back in September. 

He wrote, “Coming soon to @hbomax. Secrets to die for. Sins to kill for. A new generation of little liars. Very honored and excited to be working on this, especially with #CAOS super-writer and #PLL savant @lindsaycbring. #originalsin #kiss-and-kill #coming-of-RAGE #where-is-angela-waters??”

What will Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin be about?

A quick recap on the original plot since 2017 was literally a lifetime ago: it’s based on Sara Shepard’s novels, which follow the lives of five teenage girls: Spencer, Alison, Aria, Hanna and Emily, and how their friendship falls apart after Queen Bee, Alison, goes missing. 

The reboot, meanwhile, is expected to have plenty of dark twists, and take place 20 years after the events of the original series. It will focus on a new group of girls, who will be forced to atone for their sins, as well as their parents’.

Sarah Aubrey, head of content at HBO Max, who aired the show, said in a statement: “Roberto [writer] and Lindsay [producer] are expanding the Pretty Little Liars universe with more mystery, murder, and scandal, and we can’t wait.”
