It’s only been four years since Pretty Little Liars came to an end following a seven-season run on ABC Family/Freeform and last year, HBO Max announced a new reboot of the mystery drama, titled Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin. Now the reboot has found its new stars that will endure A’s torture.
Chandler Kinney from Zombies 2 and Maia Reficco, who can be seen in the upcoming Netflix film Strangers, have been tapped as the newest Little Liars, according to Variety. Kinney will play aspiring movie director and horror movie buff Tabby, who, unsurprisingly, is hiding a secret, since it is Pretty Little Liars. Meanwhile, Reficco is set to play striving track star Noa, who is working hard to get her life back to normal after spending her summer in juvenile detention.
Lisa Soper is set to direct the first two episodes of the series from Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and writer Lindsay Calhoon Bring. First there was Rosewood, then Ravenswood, then Beacon Heights. Now, in the town of Millwood, a new set of Little Liars find themselves tormented by an unknown assailant as they are made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed during a tragedy 20 years ago, and their own.
Aside from the Disney Channel Original Movie Zombies 2 and the upcoming Zombies 3, Kinney has appeared in Lethal Weapon, American Horror Story and Girl Meets World. Reficco’s stage credits include Next to Normal and Evita.
Production on Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin is scheduled to start later this summer. More cast updates are likely to come over the next months as filming starts, as well as an official release date on HBO Max. In the meantime, Pretty Little Liars is streaming on HBO Max while one-season spin-offs Ravenswood is on CW Seed and Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists is on Hulu.
