Pretty Little Liars Spin-Off The Perfectionists Debuts New Teaser
If you miss Pretty Little Liars as much as we do, then you’re probably also counting down the days until the hit show’s spin-off, The Perfectionists, premieres on Freeform. The network has yet to reveal an official premiere date, but given that it’s in production, it will likely debut in 2019. The series has, however, been dropping teasers – and the latest one scared the $^%! out of us.
The new sneak peek sees Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) and Mona Vanderwaal (Janel Parrish) together again, and yes, things are already getting creepy and murderous. In the short clip, we get a glimpse at Ali investigating a strange sound coming from the basement of her new home. After realizing that there’s nothing down there, she gets the fright of her life when she closes the door to find Mona standing behind her with a knife in her hand. But, before you assume that Mona is back to her old (and terrifying) ways, she was only going to use the knife to cut a piece of the pie she brought.
Phewf, right? It seems that way for now, but we know better than to think that everything is as it seems. This is definitely just the beginning and we can only imagine what they have in store for us!
Watch the new teaser below:

The spin-off, which is based on another Sara Shepard novel, centers around the two well-known PLL characters after they relocate to the town of Beacon Heights. According to the show’s official description, “Everything about the town of Beacon Heights seems perfect, from their top-tier college to their overachieving residents. But nothing in Beacon Heights is as it appears to be.”
In other words, Ali and Mona are about to get involved in a dangerous new mystery. Luckily, they know a thing or two about lies, danger, and murder after having lived through so much already. The new show will basically have the same vibe as PLL, but Janel recently opened up about The Perfectionists, telling Just Jared that it’s “it’s moodier, darker, and sexier.” She explained, “It has everything you loved about PLL, but we go a little deeper into the mysterious aspect of the show!”
We like the sound of that! She also said that the PLL fans will love the new cast, which includes Sofia Carson, Sydney Park, Eli Brown, Evan Bittencourt, Chris Mason, and Kelly Rutherford. TBH, what’s not to love about this bunch? They seem…perfect.
The only thing that would make The Perfectionists even more perfect is news that many more of our fave original PLL characters will join Sasha and Janel, too! We’re still holding out hope!
