The Perfectionists Cast Is Here To Get Us Ready For Pretty Little Liars 2.0

It feels like it's been years since Pretty Little Liars fans discovered that Spencer Hastings' evil twin Alex Drake (Troian Bellisario) was the one pulling the strings as Uber A. In reality, it has been less than one — but that doesn't mean fans miss the Freeform series any less.

The ending of the PLL mystery may have given longtime fans the closure we so desperately craved (not to mention validation for everyone who was fully onboard the #Twincer train) but unfortunately, it also meant saying goodbye to beloved characters.


Well — maybe not all of them. Not long after the PLL finale, it was announced that certain Rosewood residents would return to TV. The Pretty Little Liars' spin-off, The Perfectionists, which is based on Sara Shepard's novel of the same name, is headed to Freeform March 20.

Freeform's description of the series certainly sounds like it will follow in Pretty Little Liars' footsteps:

"Everything about the town of Beacon Heights seems perfect, from their top-tier college to their overachieving residents. But nothing in Beacon Heights is as it appears to be. The stress of needing to be perfect leads to the town’s first murder. Behind every Perfectionist is a secret, a lie, and a needed alibi."

Now we know who will be rounding out the show's cast. The new series features a mix of very familiar faces...and a few new ones, too.

Sasha Pieterse as Alison DiLaurentis

As previously reported, Pieterse, whose mysterious disappearance kicked off the original series, will head to the PLL spin-off. What does that mean for Alison's soon-to-be wife Emily (Shay Mitchell), who won't board the show as a series regular? Let's hope someone is watching over the pair's twins while Alison is hanging out in Beacon Heights.

Janel Parrish as Mona Vanderwaal

Speaking of who is taking care of the kids at home, let's hope that Mona, who will also play an integral part of the drama in Beacon Heights, hired someone to watch over Alex and Mary Drake (Andrea Parker). Those two can't live on tea and crumpets forever!

Sofia Carson as Ava

The star of Disney's Descendants, Carson will portray Ava, a "trendsetting blogger" who also happens to be a skilled coder. Could she be for The Perfectionists what Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) was for PLL? Possibly, but she'll definitely have a better wardrobe.

Sydney Park as Caitlin

Well, we know where this character gets her drive towards perfection from. According to THR, the former Walking Dead actress will play Caitlin, daughter of two perfect moms, who has government aspirations.

Kelly Rutherford as Claire Hotchkiss

It looks like Gossip Girl's Lily van der Woodsen has her own PLL-esque twin, because Rutherford's Perfectionists character looks and acts a whole lot like the CW character. Rutherford will portray Claire Hotchkiss, co-founder of Hotchkiss Industries, who thinks it's possible to achieve perfection — and has no issues manipulating things in order to get them just the way she wants.

Hayley Erin as ???

This General Hospital actress will join the series, but her role is still TBA. It's hard not to notice the physical similarities between Erin and Pieterse, however: Could Erin portray a relative of Alison's? If so, she's definitely not to be trusted.
Eli Brown as Dylan

This Hollywood newcomer will portray Dylan, a talented cellist who strives to be the best at all things. He has two great passions: music, and his boyfriend, Andrew.
