Pretty Little Liars Reboot Has Near Perfect Rotten Tomatoes Rating

The HBO Max reboot of Pretty Little Liars is a success with critics, garnering a near-perfect ranking on Rotten Tomatoes. Pretty Little Liars: Original Sins premiered Thursday, July twenty eighth, with three episodes introducing a brand new forged of Little Liars. While we’re solely every week into the sequence, 12 Rotten Tomatoes critics have given it a 92% ranking on the time of this writing, with 12 critics chiming in. As for the Pretty Little Liars: Original Sins‘ Audience Score, it at the moment sits at 79% amongst 71 customers. The Pretty Little Liars revival is doing higher than HBO Max’s Gossip Girl reboot, which has 36% on the Tomatometer and 64% common Audience Score.

“Boasting a tantalizing new mystery along with a refreshingly grounded crop of pretty little liars, Original Sin is a gossipy good time,” the Rotten Tomatoes critics consensus reads. The subsequent week two weeks will see two episodes launched on August 4th and August eleventh, with the ultimate three episodes saved for August 18th.

Many of the critiques on Rotten Tomatoes are overwhelmingly constructive. Brad Newsome of Sydney Morning Herald says the sequence is “highly self-aware with a slightly heightened design that contrasts with an earthy cynicism and visceral darkness.” Paul Dailly of TV Fanatic states, “This new iteration of A is one of the scariest villains to hit the small screen… The girls know they’re being left in the dark about many things, but at least they know they aren’t imagining this masked serial killer popping up in random places.” Decider‘s Joel Keller calls Original Sin “a more violent reboot of the original series. But there’s a lot going on in this series, which might get overwhelming at some point.”

The logline for the sequence reads: “Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in present day, a disparate group of teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin committed by their parents two decades ago…as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age, 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.”

“We’re such huge fans of what I. Marlene King and her iconic cast created, we knew that we had to treat the original series as CANON and do something different,” Aguirre-Sacasa and Calhoon Bring stated in a press release when the sequence was first introduced. “So we’re leaning into the suspense and horror in this reboot, which hopefully will honor what the fans loved about the hit series, while weaving in new, unexpected elements.”
