The fourth television series in the famous ‘Pretty Little Liars’ franchise, ‘Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin’, is soon going to be back for its second season! A standalone spinoff that’s darker than its predecessor, Original Sin is a completely new chapter in the PLL universe and centers around a new group of friends. The renewal was announced in the fall of 2020 and its first season premiered in July 2022.
A dark, twisty plot and soapy drama were the hallmarks of the original mystery-thriller series Pretty Little Liars from 2010 to 2017, which was based on the novel series by Sara Shepard and is still ranked as the best series on Freeform, according to Deadline. Two spinoffs have followed the original series, Ravenswood in 2013 and The Perfectionists in 2019. But both of those shows have lasted just one season, and Original Sin is the latest installment in the PLL Universe to air.
Created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Lindsay Calhoon Bring, ‘Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin’ is executive produced by the former co-creator along with Marlene King, Gina Girolamo, Leslie Morgenstein, Caroline Baron, and Michael Grassi. Production companies involved with the series include Muckle Man Productions, Alloy Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Television.
After the show’s first season ended in mid-August 2022, it received critical acclaim for its horror visuals, tone, characterization, and casting. Horror outlet Bloody Disgusting even called Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin “one of the best horror TV shows of the past two decades.” The encouragement the show received continued to grow from September as HBO Max announced that they were going to renew the show for a second season.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin Season 2 Release Date
After season 1 of ‘Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin’ streamed from July 28, 2022, to August 18, 2022, consisting of 10 episodes with a running time of 52-53 minutes per episode, the show was renewed for its second season on September 7, 2022. Since then, no official release date has been announced yet.
In a statement to Deadline, series creators Robert Aguirre-Sacasa and Lindsay Calhoon-Bring said, “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 — and our partners at HBO Max, Warner Bros. Television, and Alloy Entertainment. As Tabby would say, ‘There’s a sequel in the offing!’”.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin Season 2 Cast
Since there is no official statement about the cast of ‘Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin season 2, we are assuming the core cast from season 1 will return. They include Bailee Madison, Chandler Kinney, Maia Reficco, Zaria, and Malia Pyles as Imogen, Tabby, Noa, Faran, and Minnie, respectively. Mallory Bechtel could also come back as Kelly Beasley for Season 2. We can also expect Lea Salonga, Sharon Leal, Elena Goode, and Zakiya Young- the parents of the little liars, to reprise their roles for season 2. There is a high possibility that Imogen’s late mother Davie, played by Carly Pope, could have appearances in flashback form.
Lucy Hale and Ian Harding are also highly likely to make cameos as Aria and Ezra due to the Season 1 finale revealing Aria and Ezra adopted Imogen’s baby.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin Season 2 Plot
“The slasher series follows the lives of a group of teenage girls who live in Millwood, Pennsylvania, after receiving terrifying and cryptic messages from a mysterious assailant named ‘A’, holding them responsible for something tragic that their mothers did that resulted in the death of a classmate 22 years earlier. The girls are forced to team up to figure out what happened during the year 1999 and what roles did their mothers play that resulted in the tragedy.”
During PLL: OS’ tenth episode, the biggest secrets of the season were revealed, including what happened to Angela Waters, how the girls’ parents were involved, and who A was. That doesn’t mean the show’s writers didn’t leave a few loose ends to open up future storylines — they even left that finale cliffhanger to open up future storylines. A young man in question, A, is on the loose once again after escaping the hospital, and with his father no longer controlling him, he could be eccentric and could certainly turn violent again.
Unlike season 1, which focused on the girls’ mothers, season 2 could place more emphasis on the fathers, since those men are no angels themselves. Now that Kelly’s abusive father- the Sherrif- is dead, she will have to learn to live without him. On the other hand, Mouse will likely embark on a mission to find her biological father. Faran’s father will feel betrayed after Corey’s actions put her daughter through unnecessary surgery, and the rest of the liars have unreliable father figures.
