The impending ‘Pretty Little Liars’ revival has Mona Vanderwaal’s approval. Janel Parrish chatted with HollywoodLife recently about the new iteration and her upcoming Christmas films.
Mona Vanderwaal has given her OK to Roberto Aguirre-impending Sacasa’s Pretty Little Liars revival.
In the midst of her work with Shiseido Blue Project, HollywoodLife met up with Janel Parrish, who played Mona in the original Freeform series and its spin-off Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists. When questioned about her thoughts on the revival, the 32-year-old actress was all praise.
Janel told HL, “We’re very excited for this new edition of the show, and honestly, we wish it success.” “We feel privileged to have been a part of the OG PLL family.”
HBO Max has picked up the reboot, titled Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin. Original Sin will follow a fresh batch of teenagers who “find themselves tormented by an unseen assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades earlier,” according to Variety. Original Sin creator I. Marlene King is not expected to be involved.
The reboot has yet to be given a release date. The original series, which ran for seven seasons from 2010 to 2017, portrayed a group of high school friends who were tortured by an anonymous assailant via text message after their buddy, Alison, went missing a year previously. Troian Bellisario, Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Shay Mitchell, and Sasha Pieterse appeared alongside Janel in the original season.
Janel has been busy filming a number of holiday movies, including Hallmark Channel’s Coyote Creek Christmas and Lionsgate’s The Fight Before Christmas. Despite the fact that she was born on Halloween, the To All the Boys actress considers Christmas to be her favorite holiday. Janel told HL, “I love Christmas.” “It’s my all-time favorite holiday, and I was born on Halloween.”
She went on to say, “I was born on October 30.” “Halloween is my birthday month, November is Thanksgiving, and Christmas is my favorite time of year!” “I’m pretty close to my family, and we always do family get-togethers,” she told HL about her holiday plans. That is the essence of the holiday season.”
