Pretty Little Liars The Perfectionists Season 2: Premiere Date, Cast, Recap, Update

‘Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists’ is the second spinoff series from the ‘Pretty Little Liars‘ show which was adapted from Sara Shepherd’s book series with the same name. ‘Pretty Little Liars’ had premiered on Freeform and went on to achieve huge success. The first spinoff series from the show was called ‘Ravenswood’, but never managed to garner much interest, and the show was canceled only after the first season. Interestingly, in the second spinoff, fans were able to see their favorite characters Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) and Mona Vanderwaal (Janel Parrish) who returned to the show.

‘Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists’ is based on the book by Sara Shepherd. Marlene King is the creator of the show, and when asked regarding how closely the show is to the book, she said that it starts with the book, but branches off as there are twists in the book which will be difficult to cover in the series.

Pretty Little Liars The Perfectionists Cast: Who is in it?

Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish reprise their roles from the original show. Sydney Park, Kelly Rutherford, Eli Brown, and Sofia Carsonave also joined the cast of the spinoff series. The character of Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) is now a professor. Sydney’s character Caitlin is an athlete, while Brown’s character is called Dylan, who is a cellist.

Ava, the role Sofia is playing, is that of a budding fashion designer. Some might know Sofia from the Disney movie ‘Descendants’ (2015). Chris Mason, who made a name for himself in Broadchurch (2013-2017), will also be making an appearance in the movie. The showrunners have not yet revealed their plan on how to include the characters of Mona and Alisson in the series, but they surely have something planned which will take the audience by surprise. The characters are now teaching at Beacon Heights University.

Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the setting of the original PLL series, which became a major character in the show, is not the location here. Beacon Heights is located in Oregon. The title of the series, ‘The Perfectionists’, has been chosen because Beacon Heights is a school of excellence. Here every single student is expected to be at the very top of their game if they want to be taken seriously by others.

Show’s creator Marlene King had earlier clarified that all four of the original PLL cast will not be making an appearance in the series, which turned out to be true.

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists Plot: What is it about?

The story of the new spinoff series of PLL is loosely based on Sara Shepherd’s book, and it follows the story of three college students studying at Beacon Heights University. A fellow student at the university, Nolan Hodgkiss, is found murdered, and all three leading characters who are busy trying to prove themselves to be the best at college, have an alibi, a lie they have been telling around, and a secret each of them keeps close to heart. Freeform had released the first 85 seconds of the pilot, where a voiceover says that at Beacon Heights, it is a requirement to be excellent. We see a cellist practising so hard that his fingers start bleeding. We see a girl jogging around late at night, and another one working on her designs. Chris Mason is the one who is playing Hodgkiss, the student who is mysteriously killed.

A woman’s voice asks the question “Is it okay to murder a murderer?”, to which a man replies, “Murder can be justified”. Does it mean the central characters are trying to kill the perpetrator? Or does it mean that the one who has been murdered has been a murderer himself/herself? How are the central characters connected to the murder in the first place? These are some of the questions we have in mind. There was a killer around in the original series who was out for revenge. The series, like the book, has built the story around a murder happening around a college and some students getting caught up in the whole process. Alisson naturally gets involved and tries to solve the murder using her previous experiences of the same.

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists’ season 1 premiered on March 20, 2019 on Freeform. As far as the next season goes, we don’t have an official announcement yet. Though considering this spin-off has done better than the previous one, we would be surprised if it doesn’t get another season. Our best guess is that if the show does get renewed, ‘Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists’ season 2 can release sometime in March, 2020. We will update this section as soon as we hear more.
