franchise. In the dark, coming-of-age, mystery horror drama, we are in a brand-new town, with a whole new generation of Little Liars.
Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in present day, a new disparate group of teenage girls find themselves tormented by an unknown assailant and made to pay for the secret sins committed by their parents two decades ago… as well as their own.
The series stars a new generation of Liars: Bailee Madison, Chandler Kinney, Zaria, Malia Pyles and Maia Reficco. Also starring Mallory Bechtel, Sharon Leal, Elena Goode, Eric Johnson, Alex Aiono, and Lea Salonga.
Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition, says: “Described as one of the best horror TV shows of the past two decades when it launched on HBO Max earlier this year, BBC viewers can expect thrills and chills from this dark and twisty addition to the iconic franchise”.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin is co-created by executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and co-executive producer Lindsay Calhoon Bring (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina).
The series is produced by Aguirre-Sacasa’s Muckle Man Productions and Alloy Entertainment (Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, You) in association with Warner Bros. Television. I. Marlene King (who developed the original Pretty Little Liars), Michael Grassi, Caroline Baron, and Alloy’s Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo are also executive producers of the series, which is based upon Alloy’s bestselling series of books by Sara Shepard.
All episodes of new drama series Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin come to BBC iPlayer as a boxset on 28 October.
