"Some people get angry about a reboot, but I think it’s important to be supportive of up-and-coming artists. I’m curious to see what they do with it!"
I. Marlene King, who developed the original series - which is based on books by Sars Shepard - previously shared her disappointment at the news of 'Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin'.
In response to a fan noting that "the bodies aren’t even cold yet,” the producer replied on Twitter: "Literally. They are somewhere in the WB jungle.”
And ex ecutive producer Joseph Dougherty was also unimpressed.
He tweeted: "We finished three years ago. Our original boots are warm.”
The reboot is set in the same place as the original series, but with a new story.
The official synopsis for the show stated: "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 — find 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 Liars.”
