The actress revealed in an interview with Us Weekly that she can’t wait to see how the new show will delve into the characters fans of the long-running series know and love.
“I’m extraordinarily close to Janel [Parrish] and Sasha [Pieterse], so I’m just like, ‘Oh, good move for them,’ because they didn’t always get their moment on PLL,” said Lucy to Us Weekly.
“I’m just so happy that they’re getting their own show. I have no idea what it’s about. I’m equally as curious as everyone else is to see it. I’m definitely supporting.”
Although few details have been released about the series, reportedly both Janel and Sasha will reprise their roles as Mona Vanderwaal and Alison DiLaurentis.
Us Weekly has reported that a pilot episode has been filmed for an upcoming series.
The series will be based on PLL author Sara Shepard’s “Perfectionists” novels.
Rumored co-stars for the series will be Sofia Carson and Kelly Rutherford.
Karey Burke, Freeform’s Executive Vice President, Programming & Development announced, “At Freeform, we are committed to delivering shows that push boundaries and become a part of our viewer’s lives.

“We can’t wait to continue Marlene King’s rich and revolutionary storytelling with a new crop of leading ladies from Beacon Heights who will hold just as many secrets and lies as Rosewood did.”
“I’m beyond excited to continue my collaboration with Sara Shepard, Alloy, Freeform and Warner Horizon,” said writer Marlene King. ‘
“I can’t wait to introduce our fans – and Sasha and Janel – to a new world of thrills and chills in Beacon Heights.”
