Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in the present day, a group of disparate teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago… as well as their own.
“Pretty Little Liars” is an American teen drama mystery thriller television series developed by I. Marlene King and is loosely based on the novel series of the same name written by Sara Shepard. The series follows the lives of four high school girls whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader. One year later, the estranged friends are reunited as they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure named “A” who threatens to expose their deepest secrets. The series was a success story for ABC Family (now known as Freeform), lasting seven seasons and garnering a dedicated fanbase. It went on to spawn two short-lived spin-offs, “Ravenswood” and “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists,” which were both canceled after one season. A reboot of the series, entitled “Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin,” is currently in development for HBO Max.
