Pretty Little Liars Season 7: Why a spin-off on a 2.0 generation would be a bad idea!
While Pretty Little Liars recently pulled its benchmark on Freeform, here’s why a spin-off on a 2.0 generation would be a very bad idea!
Pretty Little Liars, it’s over! Yes, the meltynauts, after seven years of good and loyal service, the show show Freeform bowed out at the end of June. If many fans are terribly unhappy, it is because the series worn by Aria, Hanna, Spencer, Emily and Alison marked a whole generation that literally grew up with them. While Melty’s editor suggested that you discover five spin-off ideas from Pretty Little Liars, we must admit that one of the spin-offs envisaged by Marlene King does not tempt us, but then not at all! We explain to you right away why:
We have already gone through the intrigues!
If you paid attention to the final minutes of the Pretty Little Liars Final Series, you must have noticed that Marlene King conscientiously slipped three different ends. The first was the farewells of our heroines, the second teasait a suite with Mona and the last one suggested a spin-off with a 2.0 generation. If the idea of a spin-off centered on Mona would not displease us, we are very skeptical about a new generation of Liars because we have already gone around the intrigues. And if Marlene King did not succeed in renewing after seven years, why not just turn the page?
The pitch would be exactly the same!
Not only have the intrigues around a potential -A already been exhausted but in addition we would face the same pitch. Addison has disappeared and his girlfriends have to deal with the consequences of his “death”. If we were still convinced that this spin-off would offer a different concept while keeping some similarities, we might be a little wrapped up but for now, everything suggests that Marlene King would just propose new actresses for one and Same story. Especially since she will not have looked far for the name of her new missing!
The main actresses will not be there anymore!
If Pretty Little Liars worked so long on Freeform, it was because the fans had become enormously attached to the actresses and the characters they interpreted. Each one of them allowed the followers to identify themselves and made us want to come back every week to see if they could manage. In offering us the same story but with other characters, what will then be the interest for fans of the series to come back? After all, they will have seen it and with actresses they like more!
However, if the producer proposed to us a derivative series differently different, we would not say not so much the atmosphere of Rosewood we miss. While waiting for more information, do not forget to vote every day to allow your favorite show to win the 2017 World Cup.
