The American teen drama mystery thriller series is developed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Lindsay Calhoon Bring for HBO Max. ‘Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin‘ will be the fourth television series in the Pretty Little Liars franchise.
Speaking to EW, co-creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told:
“We very consciously said it didn’t continue with the original characters,” Sacasa added “Honestly, the first series was so iconic. Trying to ask people to embrace a new Aria or a new Spencer felt like a losing proposition. We wanted a new set of girls, a new town, a new set of secrets, and a new version of ‘A’.”
“We track the events of 1999 throughout the season,” Aguirre-Sacasa says. “We’re unraveling a mystery in the past as well as a mystery in the present, and we love the generational aspect of the season. It allows us to sort of play with tropes of 1999 mean girls in high school drama and the way things have changed.”
