Season 1 is the premiere season of the HBO Max series, Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin. It was announced on September 24, 2020[2], with a straight-to-series order. Production began on August 23, 2021 and was scheduled to end in March 2022, but instead ended on May 2, 2022.[3][4] The series will air on July 28, 2022.[1][5]



Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in the present day, a group of disparate teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — finds themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago, as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-rage, horror-tinged drama Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars.[2]

1st Summary

In the small American town of Millwood, a group of teenage girls are made to pay for their parents’ sins when they become the unwilling recipients of an anonymous blackmailer, following a series of tragic events that occurred twenty years earlier.





  • Chandler Kinney as Tabby Haworthe, an aspiring director and horror movie buff. Like the other Little Liars, Tabby’s hiding a secret.[6]
  • Maia Reficco as Noa Olivar, a striving, sardonic track star who’s working hard to get her life back to normal after a summer spent in juvenile detention.[6]
  • Bailee Madison as Imogen Adams, a true survivor. Imogen is a final girl. She will drive the mystery of uncovering “A” as she fights for her life and the lives of her friends.[7]
  • Zaria as Faran Bryant, a poised, disciplined ballerina with aspirations to make it out of Millwood. But ‘A’ isn’t the only villain in Faran’s life. In the world of ballet, it is death by a thousand micro-aggressions.[8]
  • Malia Pyles as Minnie Honrada, the youngest of the Little Liars. Having survived a childhood trauma, Minnie spends most of her time in a virtual world, but she is more than capable of taking on the dark forces of Millwood — including ‘A'.[8]
  • Alex Aiono as Shawn, Noa’s supportive boyfriend and one of the most popular jocks at Millwood High.[9]
  • Mallory Bechtel as Karen, Millwood High’s reigning queen of mean and an antagonist to the Little Liars.[9]
  • Eric Johnson as Sheriff Beasley, the domineering patriarch of the Beasley family.[9]

Guest Starring

  • Carson Rowland as Chip, like Tabby, Chip is a major film buff. And he’s not-so-secretly crushing on her.[10]
  • Jordan Gonzalez as Ash, a handsome transgender student at Millwood High and romantic interest to Minnie.[10]
  • Ben Cook as Henry, an arrogant, yet deeply talented ballerino at Millwood high and partner to Faran...on and off the stage.[10]
  • Elias Kacavas as Greg, Karen’s picture-perfect boyfriend by day. By night, they share a secretly tumultuous relationship echoing that of Karen’s own parents.[10]
  • Benton Greene as Zeke Bryant, Faran’s adoring father. Zeke struggles to navigate the hardscrabble world of the steel mill and the frilly, feminine world of ballet that his daughter inhabits.[10]
  • Lea Salonga as Elodie Honrada, Minnie’s mom. A bit overbearing, Elodie works overtime to keep her daughter safe following a trauma that occurred when Minnie was just a little girl.[11]
  • Sharon Leal as Sidney Haworthe, Tabby’s mother and our main Pretty Little Liar matriarch. Sidney is a real estate agent and single mother, doing her best to provide for her daughter, as well as Imogen.[11]
  • Elena Goode as Marjorie Olivar, Noa’s mother, a nurse at Millwood General. Though she loves her daughter, Marjorie’s hiding a secret that threatens their relationship.[11]
  • Carly Pope as Davie Adams, Imogen’s mother. Davie and Imogen have always been two against the world. But a chilling reminder from Davie’s dark past upends both of their lives.[11]
  • Zakiya Young as Corey Bryant, Faran’s mother. Once her marriage to Zeke dissolved, Corey sought greener pastures in Pittsburgh, PA, working as a paralegal, though she tells everyone she’s a lawyer.[11]
  • Derek Klena as Wes, Tabby’s boss at The Orpheum, Millwood’s second-run local movie theater. A devilishly handsome film school graduate, Wes and Tabby have bonded over their mutual love of film, but Wes’s intentions are anything but pure.[12]
  • Kate Jennings Grant as Madame Giry, the Dance Teacher at Millwood High. A ballerina herself, Madame Giry is exceedingly strict with her students, specifically Faran.[12]
  • Robert Stanton as Principal Clanton, Millwood High’s complete stress case of a principal. And nothing makes Principal Clanton more uncomfortable than our Little Liars.[12]
  • Jennifer Ferrin as Martha Beasley, the matriarch of the Beasley family. Privately browbeaten by her husband, Mrs. Beasley does whatever she can to keep up appearances.[12]
  • Lilla Crawford as Sandy, Karen’s most ardent admirer. A cringey tagalong, Sandy often boosts Karen’s ego in an effort to stay out of her best friend’s crosshairs.[12]
  • Brian Altemus as Tyler, a Millwood High jock. No stranger to “locker room talk,” Tyler is the poster child for young, toxic masculinity.[12]
  • Cristala Carter as Nurse Simmons, the School Nurse at Millwood High. Nurse Simmons is a confidante and safe place to land for our Little Liars.[12]
  • Anthony Ordonez as Mr. Gardner, the Computer Science Teacher at Millwood High. Known as Mr. Gee, Mr. Gardner is a mentor and friend to Minnie.[12]
  • Jeffrey Bean as Mr. Smithee, Tabby’s film teacher at Millwood High. Rigid and stern, Mr. Smithee doesn’t take kindly to challenges from his students.[12]
  • Ava DeMary as Teen Davie Adams, beautiful and imperious. Davie is the leader of her popular friend group. When a senseless tragedy upends all of her friends’ lives, Davie is the tie that binds them all together.[13]
  • Kirsten Maxwell as Teen Sidney Haworthe, the warmest of our clique of popular girls. Teen Sidney has a soft spot for Angela Waters, an outcast. But she’s still part of a dark mystery we will uncover in season.[13]
  • Gabriella Pizzolo as Teen Angela Waters, a lonely teen girl who is desperate to belong. Soon, Angela is bolstered by a group of alluring, promising young girls. But that new friendship comes at a cost.[13]
