Are you getting ready for the new ABC Family Series Pretty Little Liars? Based on a series of adult teen books by Sara Shepard that has been highly praised, this looks like a TV show that could be really great. The show revolves around four pretty gals Aria (Lucy Hale), Emily (Shay Mitchell), Hanna (Ashley Benson), and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) who are carrying the burden of an ugly secret. Sasha Pieterse is the actress who is A for “Alison DiLaurentis” – the missing friend.
The rest of the cast includes Laura Leighton as Ashley Marin, Holly Marie Combs (Charmed) as Ella Montgomery, Chad Lowe (formerly cast as: Alexis Denisof) as Byron Montgomery, Bianca Lawson (Buffy, Dawson’s Creek, The Vampire Diaries) as Maya, as well as Jean Louisa Kelly, Torey DeVitto and Nia Peeples.
The show looks exactly like the kind of thing I could use in my TV lineup – a brand new series, a cast where I will enjoy the younger and older generations, and a mystery to keep me intrigued. I’m ready for all the guilty pleasure fun of loving what outfits the girls are wearing, and the songs played on the show. I’m also really happy that the show seems to be set somewhere other than California – there are autumn leaves and everything! A spooky mystery in a New England town? I can never not love that. Seriously, I’ve watched the movie Hocus Pocous like ten friggin’ times.
Pretty Little Liars debuts on ABC Family Tuesday, June 8th at 8/7c. Ten episodes will run this Summer. Get your first look at the Pretty Little Liars trailer (official!) after the jump.
