Can you believe Pretty Little Liars first came out more than 10 years ago!? We were introduced to Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Emily in June 2010. Where has the time gone?
The teen drama mystery thriller was developed by I. Marlene King and went on for seven seasons. The show on Freeform revolved around the four estranged friends who start to receive messages from a mysterious “A” who threatens to expose their deepest secrets a year following the disappearance of the group’s leader, Alison.
The series had two spin-offs, Ravenswood and Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists though, these two shows didn’t do as well as the original. They were each cancelled after one season. But now, there’s another spin-off on HBO Max, which premieres July 28!
Do you have to watch Pretty Little Liars to understand Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin?
The streaming service is bringing viewers, Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin. Though the show is being marketed as a spin-off, it has a whole new set of characters and a new town. Because of this, you don’t have to watch the original Pretty Little Liars series to understand Original Sin.
The new show is set in the PLL universe but is miles away from Rosewood in the new town of Millwood. What is the same however is the fact that the assailant is also called “A,” and the group of five girls – Imogen, Tabitha, Noa, Faron, and Mouse, receive texts from “A.”
This person is also much more up close and personal. Though wearing a mask, they aren’t shy about letting the little liars see that they’re watching. So don’t worry! If you haven’t seen the original series but the new one looks interesting to you, then you can go ahead and watch! It’s a whole new story that’s not connected to to the original series.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin will drop new episodes weekly on HBO Max starting July 28.
