For pretty little liars fans, this is a big day. The new pretty little liars reboot will be coming soon to HBO Max and it’s bringing back some familiar faces! Check out the pretty little liars reboot cast below for more information on who we’ll see in season one of the show.
When will it air?
That’s still unknown, but Variety reported on September 24 the big news that Original Sin has been picked up by HBO Max—also home to the pending Gossip Girl reboot. All episodes of PLL are also currently streaming on the platform.
As pretty little liars fans know, the show centers around four high-school friends who are stalked and taunted by an anonymous character named A. The reboot tells the story of how their lives have changed after being terrorized for years in Rosewood—a small Pennsylvania town where nothing is as it seems.
According to Variety, the new series will be set in the present day, “20 years after a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart.”
The series will supposedly center around “a group of disparate teen girls who find themselves tormented by an unknown assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago.”
“Roberto and Lindsay are expanding the Pretty Little Liars universe with more murder, mysteries, and scandal, and we can’t wait,” Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, said in a statement, per Variety.

Original Cast Member from Pretty Little Liars who is returning to the show for The Reboot: Janel Parrish as Mona Vanderwaal, a character that died before season seven of pretty little liar aired. This appears to be an all-star cast list which would make any fan anxious about what’s going to happen next!
With pretty little liars ending back in 2017, the reboot is a chance for greatness and to tell more of the story. Pretty Little Liars always had plenty of twists and turns throughout its seven-season run so it’s no surprise that they are going to take on Alison’s murder trial which happened before season six.
The pretty little Liar’s reboot cast is going to be a big deal. Fans of the show have been waiting for more from Mona, Hanna’s (Ashley Benson) pregnancy, and Aria Montgomery’s recent divorce from Ezra Fitz as well as what happened with Ali’s murder trial.
It will all come together in 2020 when HBO Max airs pretty little liars season eight on its streaming service. If you want to catch up before it starts then they’re re-releasing every episode so you can binge-watch everything that has already aired and also get ready for the new episodes which are soon coming out!
Is the show worth watching?
Pretty Little Liars is pretty good, but not great. It’s worth watching if you’re a fan of the show and want to see more about what happened with Ali or Hanna’s pregnancy. The show has been pretty true to its original format which was pretty addicting back in the day when it aired on ABC Family.
The Pretty Little Liars reboot cast looks promising from everything we’ve seen so far!
