Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is hoping to bring back the pretty…
A new iteration of Pretty Little Liars is reportedly in development from the 47-year-old Nicaraguan-American television creator, playwright, screenwriter, and comic book writer and Alloy Entertainment, according to Deadline.
The reboot, which will be written by Aguirre-Sacasa, is still in the early stages, but will feature a new story and new characters. A network isn’t attached yet, and the project hasn’t been presented to possible buyers, but Warner Bros. Television sibling HBO Max would be a logical destination. The streamer is currently rebooting another signature WBTV YA series, Gossip Girl, with new characters.
Alloy Entertainment’s Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo would executive produce the series with Aguirre-Sacasa.
The original series premiered on ABC Family in 2010 and aired for six seasons, concluding its run on Freeform following the Disney-owned cable network’s rebranding. The iconic franchise launched two spinoffs – Pretty Little Liars: RavenswoodandPretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, both of which aired for one season.
Warner Bros. Television, whose former division Warner Horizon produced the original series, has not commented on the news.
Aguirre-Sacasa is the Chief Creative Officer of Archie Comics. He’s best known for his work for Marvel Comics and for the television series Glee, Big Love, Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
