What were you expecting, “Pilot”?
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, showrunner of HBO Max’s upcoming Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, has shared the title of the reboot’s first episode on social media, and it’s… kind of spooky.
“In honor of Millwood’s favorite night of the year, Friday the 13th, as well as the fact that #PLLOriginalSin starts shooting in 11 days (!), here’s a peak at our first script cover page,” Aguirre-Sacasa wrote in an Instagram post on Friday.
In addition to revealing the title of the reboot’s series premiere (“Spirit Week”), the post also features art from the script’s cover page. Before we get to theorizing, let’s have a look:
Hmm… Three people in animal masks brandishing sharp weapons above a mansion dripping with blood? Nope, nothing scary about that whatsoever. The only question — well, the first question — is: who’s hiding beneath those freaky disguises? Could it be the three Liars who have already been cast in the reboot? Either way, they all dropped a comment to express their collective excitement.
Bailey Madison, who stars as Imogen Abel, wrote, “Oh….. my…. A!!!!! “[Roberto, I] remember seeing the script for the first time and getting goosebumps, as I always geek out whenever you post script covers for your shows… this is really special.”
