Freeform hasn’t made the official announcement that the PLL spin-off is happening but production has begun so now we wait to see if it gets greenlit. Sofia Carson stars as a new character named Ava who is a trendsetting blogger and coder who strives to be a fashion icon. The spin-off is called The Perfectionists and it was previously announced that the tentative series will welcome back a number of veterans including Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish who will reprise their infamous characters Alison DiLaurentis and Mona Vanderwaal.
Sofia dished to ET’s Lauren Zima, that more original cast members may be involved in the spin-off saying QUOTE - "I've heard Troian [Bellisario] and I've heard Lucy [Hale], so hopefully they'll be involved. As much as they would want to, we will have them. For fans with their fingers crossed that this reunion will happen, luckily this isn’t the first time we’ve heard that some of the original characters will be returning. When Lucy Hale stopped by ET for an interview, she revealed that she would absolutely love to reprise her role as Aria because she’s curious to see how the two world’s would collide.
As for what will keep audiences hooked on the new series, Sofia Carson said QUOTE - "It is dramatic, it's dark, it's mysterious, it's romantic and full of secrets as the PLL world goes. There's a sensation of being constantly watched as well, like there was in PLL, so there's the same essence of the story."
