Freeform handed out a pilot order for Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists - based on the Sara Shepard book of the same name - late past year. King (Pretty Little Liars, Famous in Love) wrote the pilot and serves as executive producer on the series with Charlie Craig (Pretty Little Liars, The 100), Lisa Cochran-Neilan (Pretty Little Liars, Famous in Love), Leslie Morgenstein (Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries) and Gina Girolamo (The 100, The Originals).

Interestingly, The Perfectionists is not itself a PLL book, but is being retrofitted to focus on three college friends who struggle with both the fallout from the murder and "the stress of being overachievers". The series, which initially landed a pilot order back in September, will feature "Pretty Little Liars" stars Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish reprising their roles as Alison DiLaurentis and Mona Vanderwaal, respectively.

Also starring in the highly anticipated spin-off is Sofia Carson (Disney's Descendants), Sydney Park (The Walking Dead), newcomer Eli Brown, Graeme Thomas King (The Widow), Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl), and Hayley Erin (General Hospital). PLL aired for seven seasons, ending previous year on Freeform. Alloy Entertainment and Long Lake Media produce in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television. This will be the second PLL spinoff after "Ravenswood", which only lasted one season.
