'The Perfectionists' Announces Character List for 'PLL' Spinoff on Freeform

The Perfectionists is starting to fill in its’ cast of characters.

In a new item from TVLine, the site reports that the show is seeking six (6) new faces for the upcoming show, a “spinoff” of sorts for Pretty Little Liars, which will also star Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish as Alison and Mona.

Here’s the book summary: In Beacon Heights, Washington, five girls—Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker—know that you don’t have to be good to be perfect. At first the girls think they have nothing in common, until they realize that they all hate Nolan Hotchkiss, who’s done terrible things to each of them.

They come up with the perfect way to kill him—a hypothetical murder, of course. It’s just a joke…until Nolan turns up dead, in exactly the way they planned. Only, they didn’t do it. And unless they find the real killer, their perfect lives will come crashing down around them.

Will Brant Daugherty aka Noel Kahn Be on PLL Spinoff 'The Perfectionists?

Will Brant Daugherty aka Noel Kahn Be on PLL Spinoff 'The Perfectionists?

As far as we know, Brant Daugherty‘s character on Pretty Little Liars is dead.

We mean, we all saw him get killed and beheaded with his own axe on the final season — but then again, we also learned that people who “die” on the show, don’t actually die, either. Prime example: Mona.

So, it’s not totally out of this world if Brant would to make an appearance on the spinoff, The Perfectionists…would it?

“It would be tricky,” he admitted to ET. “They could put my head in, like, a jar maybe or flashbacks maybe. Marlene [King], if you’re watching, we can use me in flashbacks.”

Brant adds, “We’re going to see how quickly they can reattach my head, and wherever medical technology is at in the next six months, we’ll find out.”

TELL JJJ: Do you think Brant’s character could pop up for The Perfectionists like this?

Shay Mitchell Knew About 'The Perfectionists' Spinoff Before 'Pretty Little Liars' Ended

Count Shay Mitchell as a real life Pretty Little Liar — because girl can keep a secret — all of them can!

It turns out that it wasn’t just crossover stars Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish who knew about The Perfectionists, but it was all of the cast.

“I’m so excited to see Sasha on that,” Shay told EW last night at the Revolve Awards. “It’s something that they were talking about before we even finished [PLL], and all of us were so supportive.”

While she won’t confirm if her character Emily Fields will pop up on the program, she will be 100% supporting it.

“Obviously we have a huge fanbase of PLL and nobody wanted to see it end. I think this is going to be a great substitute for that,” Shay adds. “A lot of the fans will enjoy seeing what takes place later on, so I’m really excited to watch it.”

Janel Parrish Has Known About 'The Perfectionists' For a Year

Pretty Little Liars fans were able to breathe a collective sigh of relief last month when it was announced that Janel Parris and Sasha Pieterse will be starring in The Perfectionists, a spinoff for the series.

While the news is fresh and exciting for us, Janel revealed that she has known for about a year!

“I am very very happy to be taking this break to being doing Grease because I’m actually going back to the Pretty Little Liars world in March to film the pilot for the spin-off,” the 28-year-old actress told Jax of KISS 92.5.

“But I’ve known about it for about a year so it’s really exciting to be able to talk about it,” she continued. “It’s made the end of Pretty Little Liars a little less sad because I knew we were able to bring it back.”

When Janel has a secret she really can keep it.

Since the announcement that Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish were joining The Perfectionists, everyone is anxious to hear if the other Liars would be popping up — especially Emily.

Shay Mitchell chatted with TVLine about the possibility of that actually happening.

“It’s just difficult with all of our schedules right now,” Shay shared. “At the end of the day, regardless of whether I’m on it or not, I will 100-percent support the show and be a fan of it myself.”

“But we’re all just doing so many different things right now, so it’s hard to commit to something like that.”

We get it — Shay is currently working on You, plus she’s got a put pilot at ABC in The Heiresses, but we’ll still be crossing our fingers to see a little Emison on the show, too.

'The Perfectionists' Author Sara Shepard Dishes On How Sasha Pieterse & Janel Parrish's PLL Characters Will Fit Into The Show

'The Perfectionists' Author Sara Shepard Dishes On How Sasha Pieterse & Janel Parrish's PLL Characters Will Fit Into The Show

Last month, we all flipped out that Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish were returning to Freeform as Ali and Mona on The Perfectionists

But what we were kind of worried and confused about is just how the characters would fit in, because they’re not part of the books at all.

Speaking with EpicReads, Sara Shepard opened up about it all, and more importantly, just how Alison DiLaurentis and Mona VanderWaal would fit in.

“I have read the pilot, and I love how Ali is written into the story,” she says. “Not to give away too much, but she plays a big part at the school, though she isn’t one of the characters from the book.”

Sara added, “Mona is a little bit more nebulous. She comes in at the end, but I have a feeling she’s going to be a major linchpin to the series. That stuff we saw with Mona at the end of PLL, when she was in Paris? I think that connects to this story somehow. But I’m not sure quite how yet!”

Sasha Pieterse is keeping all our Emison hopes alive!

The actress and Dancing With The Stars competitor dished to ET about her new show, The Perfectionists, which starts filming next year.

“I don’t want to get in trouble, but I think it’s a year or two [after],” Sasha shared. “Honestly, I’m so glad that we’re kind of picking up where we left off. We left it in such a good place and I’m excited to be a mom, hell yeah!”

“I’m glad that I get to continue the character,” Sasha says of Alison DiLaurentis. “She’s amazing and I think, honestly, you’ll see a little bit more of a feisty side of her now that she’s in another element that she’s not used to.”

She also opened up about Emison and any hopes for Shay Mitchell to pop up on the show, even though she has her own with The Heiresses.

“I don’t think that will be a problem at all. I think the fans will really appreciate it, so that’s what we really care about anyway,” she said.

We’re ready for more Emison!

Sasha Pieterse's PLL Spinoff Actually Has Nothing To Do With 'Pretty Little Liars' At All

Sasha Pieterse might have shattered a bubble here, but The Perfectionists, which is being billed as a Pretty Little Liars spinoff, has nothing to do with PLL.

The 21-year-old actress spilled the tea after Dancing With The Stars last night with EOnline: “Sara Shepard who wrote PLL also wrote this book series. It has nothing to do with PLL, they’re just kind of putting my character into it.”

Sasha continues, “It’s still a murder mystery and it’s a really interesting plotline. I don’t think I can say anything yet!”

However, what she can tell you is that she’s known about this for A FULL YEAR!

“Obviously, I hadn’t been able to announce it yet,” Sasha says. “I didn’t know they were going to announce it today. People kept coming up to me and congratulating me and I’m like, ‘On what?’ And so I’m so excited that I get to talk about it now.”

She adds, “Janel‘s going to be in it with me. And [I.] Marlene [King,] our creator/producer for PLL is also the creator of this show, The Perfectionists. It’s a new journey. It’s an awesome journey. And I can’t wait to start.”
