HBO Max has renewed the original drama Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin for a second season. Co-created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Lindsay Calhoon Bring, the ten-episode first season debuted in July of this year and is currently available to stream on HBO Max.
“We are so proud of the incredible response both critically and from fans that Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin has received,” said Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content at HBO Max.
She added: “Viewers have embraced our new generation of Liars and Roberto and Lindsay’s brilliantly dark, horror-fueled take on this iconic franchise. Along with Alloy and Warner Bros. Television, we are thrilled to continue the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ legacy.”
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Lindsay Calhoon Bring said: “We are beyond excited to continue telling stories with our amazing group of little liars – exploring their friendships, their romances, their secrets, and their status as scream queens supreme!
They continued: “Eternal thanks to the fans who have embraced this new horror-version of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ — which we’ll be continuing, of course — as well as our partners at HBO Max, Warner Bros. Television, and Alloy Entertainment.
“As Tabby would say, ‘There’s a sequel in the offing!'”
Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in the present day, a disparate group of teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin committed by their parents two decades ago…as well as their own.
In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe – in a brand-new town with a new generation of Little Liars.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin is from executive producer/writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and co-executive producer/writer Lindsay Calhoon Bring (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina).
The series is produced by Aguirre-Sacasa’s Muckle Man Productions and Alloy Entertainment (Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, You, Purple Hearts) in association with Warner Bros. Television.
I. Marlene King (who developed the original Pretty Little Liars), Michael Grassi, Caroline Baron, and Alloy’s Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo are also executive producers of the series, which is based upon Alloy’s bestselling series of books (See on Amazon) by Sara Shepard. Jimmy Gibbons serves as a producer for Muckle Man Productions.
