Here's Why 'The Perfectionists' TV Series Won't Be The Exact Same As The Books

Here's Why 'The Perfectionists' TV Series Won't Be The Exact Same As The Books

Have you read “The Perfectionists” books by Sara Shepard?

If you have, then you automatically can tell that the Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists series isn’t page for page.

Showrunner I. Marlene King opened up to The Wrap about why that is.

“I think everybody should read Sara’s books because if you watch the show, we’re not going to give away the twists from the books,” she says. “Because if you read the books, it would be almost impossible to pull off on a TV show and sustain that.”

However, the series is “really embracing this world of perfectionism and these young people who feel like they have to be perfect in everything. I’d say that more than anything — the characters and the overall mystery of the show — we pull from Sara’s original ideas.”

Marlene also shared that she sees the series going for quite a few seasons.

“I don’t want to spoil anything, but there are so many great characters and such a rich woven story that there’s going to be tentacles from this first story that go one for a long time with plenty of twists and turns,” she shared. “With Pretty Little Liars, I thought that we’d be lucky to go for five seasons, so to get to go for seven, honestly, I just give so much credit to the fans and to the actors.”

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.

Chris Colfer Reveals Title & Cover For Brand New Book Series

Chris Colfer just announced his brand new book series and we are so excited to read it!

Titled “A Tale of Magic”, the new novel series will be in the same vein of of “Land of Stories”.

The first book will center on Brystal Evergreen, a young girl destined for greatness, but forced to survive the oppressive Southern Kingdom. Her only escape is books, but it’s illegal for women to read in her country, and working as a maid at the local library is the only way to access them.

She eventually finds a book about magic that changes her life forever — and discovers she herself is capable of magic. The only problem: Magic is despised and outlawed, and Brystal is convicted for her crimes.

“I wanted to write a book that, not only takes my young readers on a whimsical adventure, but also helps them cope with our challenging and ever-changing reality,” Chris shared with EW in a new interview. “But most importantly, I wanted to tell a story that teaches children to ‘never surrender your joy or your ambition to the times you live in.’”

'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' Gets YA Prequel Novel, Due Out This Summer

'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' Gets YA Prequel Novel, Due Out This Summer

How cool is the cover for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘s prequel novel?!

Scholastic will be releasing the novel, called “Season of the Witch”, written by author Sarah Rees Brennan.

Set in the summer before the events of Season 1, “Season of the Witch” finds Sabrina unsure of Harvey Kinkle’s feelings for her. To find out, she casts an enchantment on him (a suggestion from cousin Ambrose), a move that goes terribly awry once a wood spirit gets involved.

“They’re definitely gonna get a lot of extra story development, a lot of behind-the-scenes, a lot of insights. It’s like lore that they would not get from just watching the TV show,” the publishing house shared with Syfy. “When you make a TV show, there’s only so much you can do, you have a limited [amount] of time. With the book, we could take a deep dive into the character and just expand the storyline.”

“Season of the Witch” goes on sale Tuesday, July 9th.
