As expected, Freeform is moving forward with its Pretty Little Liars spinoff. The younger-skewing Disney-owned cable network has handed out a 10-episode series order for Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists. The series is expected to debut in 2019. With the order, Freeform now has three spinoffs on its roster, including Grown-ish and its offshoot of The Fosters.

Based on Sara Shepard’s book The Perfectionists, the drama was first put into development at Freeform in November 2014 as an unrelated series. After Freeform wrapped Pretty Little Liars after seven seasons, the idea then became to merge The Perfectionists with the world of the flagship — with the latter having been based on a different Shepard book.

 

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists is being produced by Alloy Entertainment and Long Lake Media in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television. PLL showrunner I. Marlene King, who also has Famous in Love at Freeform, penned the pilot and serves as executive producer, reuniting with PLL‘s Charlie Craig, Lisa Cochran-Neilan, Alloy’s Leslie Morgenstein (Pretty Little Liars) and Gina Girolamo (The 100) on the spinoff. Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum directed the pilot.
