A 'Pretty Little Liars' Reboot Is In The Works
PSA: Pretty Little Liars is reportedly getting a reboot - and we have Riverdale bosses to thank for it.
Yep, three years after PLL bowed out following a seven-year run, the popular franchise is set to return - but with a twist.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is putting a new spin on the teen mystery series.
Scripted by Aguirre-Sacasa, the reboot will reportedly feature a brand-new storyline and new characters, and is not yet attached to a Network.
Fans will remember that the original drama series ran from 2010 to 2017.
Loosely based on the novel series of the same name written by Sara Shepard, the show followed the lives of four teenage girls - Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily - who were tormented by a mystery figure who inexplicably knew all their secrets.
Pretty Little Liars made stars of its cast, propelling the careers of cast members like Lucy Hale, Tyler Blackburn, and Shay Mitchell.

The Freeform series launched two spin-off series in the shape of Pretty Little Liars: Ravenswood and Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, though both were unsuccessful and only lasted a season.
Interestingly, original star of the show Lucy Hale once said that she would consider returning to the show, but much further down the line.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight she said: "I feel like we'd need a little more time to pass.
"I feel like we would get more out of it if we were, like, 10 years down the road."
Having worked on Riverdale, with its dark twists and murder mysteries, Aguirre-Sacasa has some major credentials when it comes to teen drama telly, so this should be a match made in heaven.
Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo of Alloy Entertainment are set to exec-produce the reimagined series, alongside Aguirre-Sacasa.
This is one reimagining we can't wait for!
