Pretty Little Liars Spin-Off Show The Perfectionists Releases First Trailer

The hotly-anticipated Pretty Little Liars spin-off show, The Perfectionists, has just released its first trailer and it looks set to be a good one...

Pretty Little Liars ran for seven seasons on Freeform and wrapped up last year after a whopping 160 episodes.

The spin-off show, which is based on the novel The Perfectionists written by Sara Shepard who also wrote the book on which Pretty Little Liars is based, is set to debut in 2019 and has received a 10-episode order at cable network Freeform.

The Perfectionists is set in the town of Beacon Heights where a group of three college friends struggle with the stress of being overachievers.

After the town's first murder, each Perfectionist hides behind a secret, a lie and an alibi.

Based on the trailer, it looks like Ali, played by Sasha Pieterse, is looking for a fresh start by becoming a teacher at a Beacon Heights, Oregon.

Unfortunately for her, the new town she's moved to might not be that much better than her old home.

Mona, played by Janel Parrish, has also reprised her role for the spin-off show and it seems that she and Ali have long forgotten their past feud.

The trailer doesn't reveal much about the new characters in the show. It does include scenes that include staring dramatically out of windows, walking around deep in though and Mona holding a knife.

Oh, and there's also some intense music and a rather ominous voice-over revealing that "someone is about to snap and kill". Uh-oh.

They've kept details of the show under wraps but what we do know is that in addition to Ali and Mona, two of the other major characters will include Ava, played by Sofia Carson, and Caitlin, played by Sydney Park.

Fans took to Twitter overjoyed that the spin-off is happening.

One person tweeted: "SO EXITED THE PERFECTIONISTS GOT PICKED UP! I have literally binge watched PLL so much, I love the show! The Perfectionists looks so good from the 30 second trailer.

"I can't wait to see @SashaaPieterse & @JanelParrish on my screen again as the iconic Alison & Mona!"

Another fan was so excited they had to express their joy through caps lock, saying: "OMG I DIDN'T EXPECT THIS AT ALL BUT OMG THE FIRST EVER TRAILER FOR THE PERFECTIONISTS LOOKS SO FREAKING AMAZING I CAN'T WAIT TO WATCH THE SHOW AND HAVE MY QUEENS SASHA AND JANEL BACK I'M SO PROUD OF THE WHOLE CAST AND CREW AND I HAVE TO SAY A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE."

Excited is an understatement!
