Is HBO Max’s popular teen drama mystery returning for another season? Read on to find out more about Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin Season 2.
The first season’s last three episodes, Chapter Ten: Final Girls, Episode 8, Chapter Eight: Bad Blood, and Episode 9, Chapter Nine: Dead and Buried, were released on August 18, 2022, on the same day. Since then, the fans of the TV series have been wondering if the show would get an early renewal or not. The great news is that the fans can be relieved as HBO Max has greenlit the series, and it is now getting a second season.
On the other hand, the reviews of the series have overall been great, which makes it an easy decision for the network to continue the series for another season. It was reported that “Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin” was met with a very positive response to critical acclaim from critics.
The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 88% approval rating with an average rating of 6.9/10, based on 17 critical reviews. The website’s critics’ consensus reads, “Boasting a tantalizing new mystery along with a refreshingly grounded crop of pretty little liars, Original Sin is a gossipy good time.”
Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 82 out of 100 based on 5 critics, indicating “universal acclaim.” This is exciting as the holdup for the fans won’t last too long now because we have all the details to share! Take a look at this quick rundown of everything you need to know about the release date, plot, and cast, so you can get a head start on the next installment and be prepared before the series airs on HBO Max.

Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin Season 2 Speculated Release Date
The prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged as the renewal of the series was just announced a few hours ago, and the production is yet to begin. But if we have to predict the potential release date of Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin Season 2, it might happen sometime around mid-2023, just like the first season.
The likely month can be around July to August 2023. On the other hand, this is just speculation that the next season might follow the same pattern and be released in a similar time frame. All these details will be released by HBO Max once the production of the series wraps up on a timely schedule.
