Got a secret and we’re not keeping it any longer.
Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists premieres on Wednesday with Alison (Sasha Pieterse) starting a new job as a TA at a prestigious college, only to find that its students might need more of her help than she thought. They’re up to all kinds of shenanigans, so it’s real lucky for them that their new English TA is extremely good at a lot of non-school things, like faking a death, for instance. She’s also got some experience with murder, blackmail, evil/secret siblings, inappropriate usage of technology, etc etc.
A might have been left behind, but this is still the world of Pretty Little Liars.
“The themes of the show are similar—murder, mystery, relationships, intrigue, nothing is as it appears to be,” creator I. Marlene King tells E! News. “But it’s a whole new show, and we really are embracing this idea of exploring perfectionism, but also exploring this idea that you’re always being watched. There’s security cameras everywhere.”
As you prepare to watch these kids who are always being watched, we’ve got the low-down on the new cast of suspicious characters lurking in the halls of Beacon Heights University, with some help from the cast themselves.
SOPHIA CARSON AS AVA
There’s a very 2019 vibe to the social media-savvy Ava, who Carson describes as less of an influencer and more of a fashion designer and blogger “who loves fashion for the sake of fashion and wants to be a designer.” She’s also a talented hacker and coder.
