I Marlene King Reacts To The New 'Pretty Little Liars' Series 'Original Sin'

I. Marlene King is thanking Pretty Little Liars fans!

The creator of the original PLL series, and it’s two spinoffs, took to Twitter on Friday (September 25) to show her appreciation to the fans for their support amid the announcement of the new series Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin.

“The #OGPLL fans are the most passionate, loving and loyal in the universe. Thank you for all of your support. We are family forever. I love you. ❤️ #PLLFamily #OGPLLFamily,” she wrote.

She also seemingly responded the day before, by liking two tweets from Bob Levy, who helped bring Pretty Little Liars to life, and served as an executive producer on the first season.

“PLL premiered 10 years ago today, the highest rated premiere in the network’s history and remained the highest rated show on the network for its entire 7 season run. At its peak it was the highest rated show on American TV for teen girls, bigger than GLEE or AMERICAN IDOL,” one of his tweets said.

“The moral of the story after 5 years of development at 3 networks: successful development requires all the stars to align. If you believe in your project, it may take multiple heartbreaking failures but keep going. #PatienceGrasshopper (That’s a 70s TV reference.)” Bob wrote in his other tweet.

Janel Parrish saw Marlene‘s tweet and echoed her statement, adding, “What she said. Love you @imarleneking”

Marlene actually has nothing to do with the series, and it’s being brought to HBO Max by Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

News of the series reboot, completely separate from the original, had many fans upset that it was being made, especially only three years after the OG series had gone off the air.

'The Perfectionists' Creator I Marlene King Says Season 2 Could Bring In Original 'PLL' Characters

'The Perfectionists' Creator I Marlene King Says Season 2 Could Bring In Original 'PLL' Characters

The Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists aired last night and left us all with quite a few questions… and that cliffhanger?!

Creator and EP I Marlene King recently opened up about the possibility of a season two and maybe having more original Pretty Little Liars characters making appearances.

“The original PLLs have been so supportive of this show, not just the ladies but the men,” she told EW. “Tyler’s [Blackburn] been so supportive and Ian [Harding] and hopefully we’ll find a way to bring them in. Because they can come and visit our world and it will still feel like our world. Because it is the same universe.”

Marlene also dished on what she hoped to explore more in a second season.

“Unlike our Pretty Little Liars, the Perfectionists weren’t friends coming into this show, so we really had to spend the season crafting that friendship. Now we really get to explore the idea, which was the same on PLL, that ultimately this is a show about unconditional friendship and what that looks like,” she said. “We’re going to get to see more of what an unconditional friendship looks like when it’s really tested because they will be tested this next season. And hopefully, we’ll get more into Alison and all of their personal journeys. I want to get to know more about these characters now that we’ve gotten to know them a little bit. There’s still so much more to learn about them. And more about Nolan too!

Emison Is Possibly Still Endgame on 'The Perfectionists'

Emison Is Possibly Still Endgame on 'The Perfectionists'

Earlier this season on Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, fans were dealt a huge blow with Emison as it was revealed that Alison and Emily were getting a divorce.

However, that might not be the end of their story, showrunner I. Marlene King says.

“I don’t think it’s the end of the story, and I think it’s possible that Emison is going to be endgame, but I think it’s only fair to Alison that she gets to go on a journey in this world and where she ends up,” she told EOnline ahead of the season finale tonight on Freeform.

She added, “I would say it’s still possible that she finds her way back to Emily in Rosewood, but she has to go on a journey first.”

Marlene added that although fans are still processing it, Alison now gets to go on her own journey without Emily and Shay Mitchell.

“We knew it was a bitter pill to swallow, but she couldn’t have a love interest that wasn’t on the show right now. It’s unfair to the character, really,” she continues. “So yeah, it was a necessary thing to do, and I know it’s heartbreaking for some fans, but I hope they open up their minds and their hearts to go on this ride with Alison, and know that they may live happily ever after in the end, or she may find somebody fans love even more than Emily.”

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

'Perfectionists' Showrunner Marlene King Sees The Series Going For A Long Time

I. Marlene King has high hopes for The Perfectionists, the second spinoff series for Pretty Little Liars.

In a new interview with The Wrap, the showrunner is opening up about her big picture vision for the show.

“I think we have just a richness of opportunity in this new world,” Marlene says. “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 continued, “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.”

Marlene even says that there could be more spinoffs in the future.

“I feel like there’s absolutely a world [where that’s possible],” she says. “There were all these meetings about ‘should it be Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists or PLL The Perfectionists‘ and then someone explained to me that if we want more to come, it should have a colon.”

“So we’re definitely open to expanding the universe. It’s so much fun to play in this world, so I’m always open to new ideas and new tentacles to explore.”

The Perfectionists airs Wednesdays on Freeform.
