The Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists TV show is a twisted and devious spin-off of the hit series, Pretty Little Liars, as well as a loose adaptation of the fellow Sara Shepard book series The Perfectionists.

‘Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists’ season 1, episode 10 air date

Freeform has confirmed that Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists season 1, episode 10 will premiere on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, at 8 p.m. ET.

According to a synopsis for “Enter the Professor,” “In the aftermath of a shocking event, Ali, Mona and the Perfectionists try to pick up the pieces of their lives. However, new information is uncovered which makes them question everything they think they know.”

Watch the trailer for season 1, episode 10 below:

Episodes will continue to air weekly on Wednesday nights. The following day, episodes will be available for streaming on Hulu and Freeform.

Will The Perfectionists be on Netflix? International audiences are hoping to see The Perfectionists on Netflix, since Freeform has been notoriously bad at distributing their shows outside of the United States (Luckily Shadowhunters fans have had no problem watching new episodes abroad). There are currently no plans for The Perfectionists to stream on Netflix, but should that change we will let you know. In the mean time, you might want to sign the petition to make it happen!

‘Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists’ theories

Even though Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists is just beginning, we already have a prime suspect in the murder of Nolan Hotchkiss: Caitlin’s boyfriend, Jeremy.

The minimal role Jeremy played in the pilot was not reassuring, especially because in his small scene, he and Caitlin talked about what a tool Nolan is. Given this fact, his closeness to Caitlin, and the fact that it was Caitlin’s fantasy carried out to perpetrate Nolan’s murder, this is why he is our #1 suspect at this time.

Plus, men with accents on Pretty Little Liars either end up evil, crazy, or as diamonds… Wren Kingston went all out and did all three.

The synopsis for the season reads, “Everything about the town of Beacon Heights seems perfect, from its top-tier college to its overachieving residents — but nothing in Beacon Heights is as it appears to be. When the high-stakes environment pushes the residents to a breaking point, someone snaps and kills someone. As they work together to solve the murder mystery, it soon becomes clear that behind every Perfectionist is a secret, a lie — and a needed alibi.”

Though, like Pretty Little Liars, The Perfectionists is based off of a book series by Sara Shepard, we already know the series is going to be a completely different story than the books. Already there are many changes, including the addition of Alison and Mona (both of whom are dead in the book universe) and the introduction of Dylan Walker as one of the perfectionists.

That said, we could not be more excited to see what elements creator I. Marlene King pulls from the books and introduces into this story. If PLL is any indication, we are in for one wild ride. (Perhaps an even wilder ride, considering the already-established universe and Freeform’s loosening restraints on their content.)

This resource will be updated regularly as The Perfectionists season 1 begins airing.

As soon as she arrives, Alison is greeted by her former frenemy, Mona Vanderwaal, in her new house with pie and a knife. From the looks of the trailer, it appears that the darkness Mona and Alison have left Rosewood to escaped has followed them to a new town… where there’s a new murderer on the loose.
