We’re not in Rosewood anymore. Welcome to Beacon Heights University, where only the best of the best are trying to rise to the top in their fields, while also trying to keep all their dark secrets hidden.
Sasha Pieterse as Alison DiLaurentis
Ali is back and this time she’s teaching at Beacon Heights University. While she might be far away from Rosewood, it seems like she won’t be able to escape everything that she’s trying to leave behind.
“It’s so fun to be playing Alison again, because I’ve just played her for so long and I feel like I’ve kind of grown up with her. I did the pilot when I was 12 and now I’m an adult and it’s so fun,” Sasha told Seventeen on the set of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists.
She’s trying to start over as a nice person, but she faces some challenges.”
Before starring in Pretty Little Liars, Sasha had smaller roles on Heroes and The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl.
She also participated in season 25 of Dancing With the Stars where she came in tenth place.
Janel Parrish as Mona Vanderwaal
Mona couldn’t stay in Paris for too long.
She’s back and it seems like even Alison is surprised to see her return from her trip. It wouldn’t surprising if Mona has something up her sleeve.
Or maybe she’s finally trying to make things right?
She competed in season 19 of Dancing With the Stars where she came in third place. Janel recently starred in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, which is also getting a sequel.
Sophia Carson as Ava Jalali
“Ava is this unstoppable, invincible girl who against all odds, against losing everything and everyone, she is determined to survive.
And not only to survive, but to succeed and everything her parents are not and kind of prove to herself and the world that she can do and be anything that she dreams of,” Sophia Carson revealed to Seventeen on a set visit. “It’s been such a thrill playing Ava, because the world of Beacon Heights is such a dark and mysterious world and she’s experienced a lot of trauma, so I had to go to dark and deep places and come out stronger and it’s such a beautiful thing to tell her story.
I’m having so much fun.”
Sydney Park as Caitlin Park-Lewis
“She is such an overachiever, she is the definition of a perfectionist.
“She’s kind of like a Senator-in-training. But, she’s got a lot on her plate.
Lots of secrets, like the good old Pretty Little Liars. She’s a fun character.
She’s got a lot of quirks and layers.”
The Walking Dead fans will certainly recognize Sydney from her role as Cyndie.
Eli Brown as Dylan Walker
“Dylan is by nature a perfectionist. He’s very hardworking.
But he gets himself into some tricky situations so he does what he has to do.”
He is also starring in The F It List, based on the YA novel of the same name.
Chris Mason as Nolan Hotchkiss
The bad boy who runs the school thanks to the fact that his parents own the school.
He is able to get away with almost anything he wants and often uses his status as a way to get others to do whatever he wants.
He had several roles in hits like The Fades, Lightfields, and Broadchurch. Chris also appeared in the movie Vampire Academy and has voiced characters in video games like Anthem and Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Graeme Thomas King as Jeremy Beckett
Kelly Rutherford as Claire Hotchkiss
“She is in security and reconnaissance and she does all of that for the school. She wants to know what’s going on and have a controlled environment,” Kelly Rutherford told Seventeen on the set of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists.
Hayley Erin as TBD
Nothing is really known about Hayley Erin’s character, but any Pretty Little Liars fan knows to expect something huge.
Hayley is known for her roles in General Hospital and The Young and the Restless.
