AceShowbiz - New details about the highly-anticipated spin-off pilot of "Pretty Little Liars", "The Perfectionists", are here. Talking to Entertainment Tonight, series creator I. Marlene King spilled what fans could expect from the upcoming spin-off.
"We were scouting for locations to film our pilot in Portland over this last weekend and yes, the script is written and we're in the process of rewriting it just to fine-tune it perfectly," King said at Freeform's Summit on Thursday night, January 18 in Los Angeles. "We're super excited about it."
She further revealed that the new series would not be all girls. "I feel like just as we were getting sort of into season five and six of 'Pretty Little Liars', our guys became such an important part of the show," she explained.
King added, "I wanted to explore the relationship between guys and girls who can be friends and not necessarily boyfriend-girlfriend."
When asked whether %cShay Mitchell% would make some appearances on the series, King opted for a vague answer. "Well, we'll just have to wait and see," she teased. "That's a part of the story that's, you know, the fun of a spinoff is getting to take a couple characters from your show and creating this new experience for them, but you can't take everyone."
"It's bittersweet in some ways, but I think also awesome in others and I think our fans will appreciate the journey that these two characters, Mona and Alison from our world, are going into this new world."
Set one to two years following the mothership series' finale, "The Perfectionists" will star %cSasha Pieterse% and %cJanel Parrish%. There is no premiere date yet for "The Perfectionists".
