ゾンビ 2 star Chandler Kinney and Nickelodeon actress Maia Reficco have been cast in the upcoming Pretty Little Liars reboot.
HBO Max announced on Friday that Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin will star Chandler as Tabby and Maia as Noa, while revealing the specifics about their characters.
チャンドラー, who plays Willa in the Disney Channel ZOMBIES franchise, will star as Tabby, “an aspiring director and horror movie buff,” according to a press release, and just “like the other Little Liars, Tabby’s hiding a secret.”
その間, マイア, who starred as the titular character in Nickelodeon Latin America’s musical series Kally’s Mashup, will play Noa.
She’s “a striving, sardonic track star who’s working hard to get her life back to normal after a summer spent in juvenile detention.”
The two actresses are the first to join the Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin cast.
The reboot will not follow the exact same storyline as the original and will follow new characters being stalked by an unknown tormentor.
“Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart,” the release shared of the synopsis.
「今、, in the present day, a group of disparate teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago…as well as their own.”
The synopsis continued: “In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: ORIGINAL SIN, 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.”
The original series aired for seven seasons on Freeform, から 2010 に 2017, and starred Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, アシュレイベンソン, Shay Mitchell, and Sasha Pieterse.
This new iteration comes from executive producer/writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the creator behind Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and co-executive producer/writer Lindsay Calhoon Bring.
Production on the new PLL series is set to begin later this summer in upstate New York.
Lisa Soper, who worked on Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, will direct the show’s first two episodes.
Chandler has been busy working on ZOMBIES 3, the newest installment of the popular DCOM franchise, in Toronto, カナダ.
Maia is now shooting the upcoming Netflix dark comedy feature, 見知らぬ人, opposite Camila Mendes and Maya Hawke.
