In a statement on the news, co-creators Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Lindsay Calhoon Bring said they were “beyond excited” for the news and were thrilled to get to work on the upcoming season.

“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! 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!’”

Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content at HBO Max, also said they are proud to bring back the show. “We are so proud of the incredible response both critically and from fans that Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin has received,” said Aubrey. “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.”

Based upon the bestselling series of books by Sara Shepard, Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin is being led by Bailee Madison, Chandler Kinney, Zaria, Malia Pyles, and Maia Reficco. Joining them are Mallory Bechtel, Sharon Leal, Elena Goode, Lea Salonga, Eric Johnson, and Alex Aiono.

“Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart,” reads the synopsis. “Now, in 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, 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.”
