Freeform has OFFICIALLY picked up The Perfectionists, and judging by this teaser trailer, we can definitely see why!
So we already knew that Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish would be reprising their PLL characters, Alison and Mona, for the show, and the trailer definitely shows us a lot of them. In addition to seeing Alison and Mona reunite, the teaser also gives us our first glimpse as other cast members, including Sofia Carson, Kelly Rutherford, Sydney Park, Hayley Erin, and Eli Brown.
The logline for The Perfectionists says the show is QUOTE, “set in the town of Beacon Heights, a seemingly perfect town where a group of three college friends struggle with the stress of being overachievers. In the aftermath of the town’s first murder, each Perfectionist hides behind a secret, a lie and an alibi.”
Within the first few seconds of the trailer, it’s clear that Alison and Mona are going to get wrapped up in the mystery and mayhem.
As you can see, the teaser first follows Alison as she makes her way to Oregon for a new job and tells the driver she “doesn’t know a soul”, but that quickly changes when Mona shows up with a pie and an almost comically large knife.
The teaser then jumps right into vignette of scenes, with one that shows Sofia Carson’s character Ava crying, a dinner party that looks like it’s about to go very wrong, and Mona seeming to curiously spy on another guest on the mansion grounds. Actually, I have a feeling there’s going to be a lot of spying going on in this show.
At the end of the trailer, Ava’s voice is heard saying QUOTE, "Someone is about to snap and kill."
And that line promises to be true, as we see police tape and Alison walking through what appears to be a crime scene. The last image of the trailer proves that Alison and Mona are both in DEEP as a result of whatever murder occurred in Beacon Heights.
I have a feeling Alison thinks Mona has something to do with something, and I don’t blame her.
