Pretty Little Liars Spinoff, Starring Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish, Gets Pilot Order at Freeform
After all, with Sasha Pieterse reprising her iconic character — who was last seen raising twins with Emily in the

“I was super excited for everybody when I first heard about it — I think it’s amazing,” she said. “It’s going to be so much fun for Sasha and Janel. And why not? The fans love it. For me, it was like hearing that
was getting a movie. I was such a huge fan of that show, and that just extended my enjoyment of it. So I think it’s great. Some of the fans may have grown up and moved on, but other fans want more. They want to find out what happens to certain characters. This show will really get into the aftermath of what happened in Rosewood.”

“It’s just difficult with all of our schedules right now,” Mitchell concluded. “At the end of the day, regardless of whether I’m on it or not, I will 100-percent support the show and be a fan of it myself. But we’re all just doing so many different things right now, so it’s hard to commit to something like that.”
