Three years after its finale, 'PLL' is getting a reboot spearheaded by 'Riverdale's' showrunner

Mystery thriller series Pretty Little Liars is getting a reboot, 3 years after its final episode aired in 2017.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, CW’s Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will be heading and writing the reboot, alongside Alloy Entertainment’s Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo, who will be executive producing.

The PLL reboot, which has no assigned network yet, will reportedly tackle a different story with new characters.

The original Pretty Little Liars series ran from 2010 to 2016 for 7 seasons, and starred Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario, Ian Harding, Sasha Pieterse, and Tyler Blackburn.

The show was loosely based on the mystery drama novel series written by Sara Shepard, which followed 4 high school girls whose lives changed once their clique leader went missing. After her disappearance, a mysterious texter named “A” begins to threaten the girls with their deepest secrets.

The hit franchise produced two spin-offs – Pretty Little Liars: Ravenswood (2013) and Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists (2019) – both of which were canceled after one season. – Rappler.com
