ProductionEdit

DevelopmentEdit

On April 13, 2018, ETV renewed the series for a second season consisting of 13 episodes.[90] Following the first season finale, showrunner Joseph Dougherty announced that although Janel Parrish's character Mona Vanderwaal was in jail, that Mona would "continue to be A."[91][92] Over a month later, on July 17, it was reported that the cast of the show had not "renewed their contracts,"[93][94][95][96] which the crew had denied at first.[97][98] On July 31, ETV announced that the cast of the series would not reprise their role in the forthcoming season, and launched a casting call for "younger versions of Spencer, Hanna, Aria, Emily, Mona and Alison."[99][100][101] It was then publicly announced that the second season would feature younger versions of the Liars, who would be targeted in their younger years.[102][103] On September 10, 2017, it was announced that the premiere of the season would be pushed further to June 11, 2017 with the episode count doubled to 26.[104][105][106]

Original series cast Edit

Following criticism from fans asking about the original cast due to the lengthy run of the second season, Dougherty admitted "The original cast had already been in [Pretty Little Liars] for 7 years and wanted new roles. The success of this new show had surprised many of us, and we did not want to cancel the show so it was the best solution to try out something new. I can tell you, though, that they agreed to return to the show in 2021 or 2022, so we'll see how it goes."[107][108][109]

On March 17, 2020, Dougherty announced in a live stream that the original cast would reprise their roles in the Season 2 finale.[110][111] However, Lucy Hale was unable to film her cameo appearance due to prior commitments, so stock footage was used for her portrayal.[112][113] Dougherty also assured that Hale would return in Season 3, following rumors of her "Pretty Little Liars departation."[114][115]

CastingEdit

On July 31, it was announced that the previous cast would not reprise their role in the second season as younger versions would be casted.[116][117][118] The casting call allowed girls aged 13-15 to audition for one of the Liars, with the ability of being called back for another role.[119][120] On September 3, it was announced that Rowan Blanchard would portray Aria Montgomery holding the lead role for the season. All castings of other regulars and recurring actors were announced at once in October 1.[121][122] It was also announced that parents and faculty would remain with the same actor for realism purposes.[123]
