PLL The Reboot: Everything We Know So Far…
According to some recent news from The Hollywood Reporter, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the creator of Riverdale is all set to make a reboot of PLL. Aguirre-Sacasa took the Archie comics and turned it into a teen murder-mystery, so, we can accept quite a lot from the reboot. Riverdale itself has a huge fandom just like PLL. Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo, who are the executive producers of another famous thriller-drama, You, will be joining the team of PLL reboot along with Aquirre Sacasa.
No news of the Network is made by the creators yet. However, Riverdale airs on the CW network, whereas, PLL was an ABC original. But, according to rumors, the team of PLL reboot is eyeing HBO Max. It will be perfect as Warner loves the property and are currently in need of all-female content for the network.
Besides everything, one thing that is confusing the fans is the involvement of the original creator, I Marlene King. She created the show and the girls earlier, but, now it seems like she is not interested in the project. So, we guess the show will move on without her this time.
