Will there be a Pretty Little Liars movie? There have been so many revivals over the past few year. So fans are wondering if PLL will be next. And the cast sounds open to the idea!
"'Sex and the City' had two movies, so you never say never, right?" Shay Mitchell told Hollywood Reporter this week. "It would absolutely be nice to see the PLLs again in five years, but I'll be catching up with them sooner than that."
Still, Troian Bellisario noted that Pretty Little Liars will end with viewers getting to "imagine these girls going on and living these amazing lives while staying friends with each other." So writers would have to come up with a natural way for all the characters to reunite.

"We joke around about it being like 'SATC,' 'Let’s just put the PLLs in Dubai and see what happens!' But, how would you bring them back together?" she continued. "Once this mystery is done, it all depends on what the story would be. Would it just be about what they’re doing in life and if that were the case, some time would have to pass and it would be very different."
Bellisario added, "We love working together and I think any opportunity to be together we would take, but it very much depends on the circumstances of the story. How terrible would that be if we waited 10 years and we came out with a movie and people were like, ‘Uh that was it?’ We want to end on a high note."
This isn't the first time the PLL cast has brought up the idea of a Pretty Little Liars movie. It was also discussed last summer, before Freeform confirmed that Season 7 would be the show's last.
Tyler Blackburn told E! News at the time that a film "would be the best option" for concluding the series. In fact, showrunner Marlene King said in March that the two-hour series finale "was written like a movie."
So could King write another PLL movie in a few years? She has hinted that there will be some kind of reboot in the future.
"We'll find a way to bring these characters and this world back together at some point in time," King told reporters in January. "I don't think it will be in two years, but at some point in time. I hope so."
