Janel Parrish is opening up more about what Mona VanderWaal will be like when we re-meet her in The Perfectionists.

Speaking with Elite Daily, the -year-old actress explained that “she’s not trying to hide who she is anymore.”

She adds, “I think she understands that she is a complicated person, I think the audience understands that, I think that’s kind of what makes her interesting to watch.”

“She’s never really just on anybody’s side, she’s kind of on her own. I think she’s established herself as one of the good guys, but she’s definitely got darkness, and issues and secrets, and that will stay the same [in The Perfectionists] because she’s Mona.”

In the new series, premiering next year on Freeform, Mona will still be trying to outsmart everyone.

“She’s still going to be the smartest person in the room, which I love playing,” Janel confesses. “I think that’s such a fun thing about Mona. She’s always kind of three steps ahead of everybody else.”

So what will Mona be like now, since time has passed?

“Time has passed, she’s obviously not in Paris anymore [and] I think she’s really trying to be a person that people can trust,” Janel adds. “However, darkness still seems to follow Mona everywhere. There’s a new murderer, a new mystery, and she’s got to cope with that.”

Janel Parrish is opening up a little more about a possible new love interest for Mona on The Perfectionists.

While we were all hoping for Cody Christian to pop up on the series as Mike, which may or may not happen – the next best thing is someone like him, and Janel 100% approves of that.

Speaking with ET, she was estatic for Mona to get a little love on the new show.

“It’s about time! Mona deserves some love too! We saw her with two relationships. I really liked the Mona and Mike relationship, but since then she hasn’t really had love in her life,” she shared. “It’s nice to see that romantic side of her kind of come out because, you know, Mona has a lot of different sides.”

Janel‘s thoughts about Mona’s relationship: “I’d like to see her with someone like Mike, who is loving and kind, but I also think she likes the bad boys too, like Noel Kahn,” she teased.

And she’s not ruling out a love triangle, either: “I think that’d be fun.”

The Perfectionists debuts in 2019 on Freeform.

Janel Parrish is dishing out some new dirt about her upcoming series, The Perfectionists.

A spinoff of Pretty Little Liars, the show will be set in a town called Beacon Heights, and Janel is really excited about.

“It’s a little more classy in what meets the eye. It’s a bunch of people living in this town, trying to be perfect,” Janel shared with PeopleNow about her new local in the series.

She adds, “Underneath the surface [though], I think it’s even edgier and a little bit more risque than the residents of Rosewood.”

The Perfectionists will debut on Freeform in 2019.
