Yay! Sofia Carson Joins Pretty Little Liars Spin-Off The Perfectionists
It’s official! Disney Channel alum Sofia Carson is getting ready to join the cast of Pretty Little Liars‘ spin-off. This is one ~descendant~ that’s about to hang up her evil cape and become quite the ~perfectionist~.
The 24-year-old beauty has landed herself a shiny new gig as a member of The Perfectionists. We know you all know and love the actress in her role as Evie from The Descendants, but now we’ll be able to see her on Freeform as Ava, who is described as a “beautiful trendsetting blogger and coder, who strives to be a fashion icon” on the PLL spin-off! The exciting news was announced by both series creator I. Marlene King and Sofia on Twitter:

The Perfectionists takes place in Beacon Heights, a town that seems perfect. KEYWORD: Seems. But naturally, we all know everything is not as it seems. And the stress of needing to be perfect leads to the town’s first murder. Every Perfectionist has a secret, a lie and a much-needed alibi.
In addition to this exciting new role, Sofia will also be taking on a recurring role on the upcoming season of Freeform’s Famous in Love, alongside Bella Thorne. The actress will play Sloane, the daughter of a movie mogul who becomes entwined with Paige Townsen and her friends.
So since we’ve gone over all of the good news, there’s some bad news that we need to let you know about. Sadly, there is no date set for the upcoming PLL spin-off. But, hey, at least know it’s happening for sure, right? Anyway, until then, we’re all sending a HUGE congrats to Sofia for her new Perfectionist role and, in the meantime, we’ll look out for Sloane on Famous in Love.
