“Pretty Little Liars” (PLL) fans, you’re in for an amazing surprise. PLL author Sara Shepard is making another masterpiece that will come to your television sets soon enough. The CW is adapting Sara Shepard’s “The Perfectionists” into a TV series!

According to Deadline, CW is working to adapt “The Perfectionists,” a young adult book series by Shepard, which is yet to be released. There are only little details as of now about the book but the story involves a murder mystery – again. It’s like the cousin of “Pretty Little Liars!” The new series will be executive produced and written by Arika Lisanne Mittman (“Dexter”).

If you’re a fan of Sara and her works, her “The Heiresses” book was adapted into a small screen adaptation by Bravo television network. It follows a group of girls who are heiresses to their grandfather’s billion-dollar diamond business.

“The Perfectionists” and “The Heiresses” will be Sara’s third and fourth book that will be adapted into a TV series. We are all aware that “Pretty Little Liars” was a huge hit but “The Lying Game” didn’t pick up well during it’s airing time. it was canceled after only two seasons.

However, we still do believe in Sara’s works and we think that “The Perfectionists” will do well considering that it has a similar plot to “Pretty Little Liars.” In fact, an excerpt of the book was released on MTV news.
