A is back, but that doesn't mean the cast of Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin will look familiar.

Au contraire: this time around, a new generation is suffering for their parents' mistakes...and maybe a few of their own. We have a feeling things are bound to get a whole lot more menacing.

Now that you've learned where to watch Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin—and the OG if you're craving a nostalgic TV binge—it's time to meet the new liars. 

Cast of 'Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin'

Who doesn't appreciate a reboot? From Gossip Girl to Sabrina the Teenage Witch, seemingly all of our favorite 90s and 2000s stories are seeing a resurgence. It was only right that our favorite murder-mystery YA got another moment in the spotlight. 

Here's who's who in the town of Millwood, where A can't seem to let a group of high schoolers be at peace.

Bailee Madison as Imogen

The 22-year-old Florida native got her start in Hollywood as May Belle in 2007's Bridge to Terabithia. A few of her other cameos include Adam Sandler's Just Go With It and 2009's Brothers. 

The touches of horror and fantasy on her resumé—The Strangers: Prey at Night, Good Witch—undoubtedly helped her transition to her current role as Imogen, the pregnant teen caught up in A's antics. And like the rest of her generation, she's no stranger to the 2000s Pretty Little Liars

"I was, and still am, such an OG Pretty Little Liars fan, and so, you know, it personally meant so much to me the idea of getting to join this reimagining of the world they so wonderfully created," the actress told TV Fanatic (opens in new tab)

The 21-year-old Disney alumna, who starred in Girl Meets World and Zombies 2, to name a few, is taking on a new direction for her latest gig. 

She, too, grew up in the PLL world, which she claims is her first introduction to the YA genre. But she is hoping her role as Tabby will make things more inclusive. 

"It's a show that should initiate conversations and give voice to people who often go unheard," she told TV Fanatic. 

Zaria as Faran

The high school poet-turned actress, who you'll recognize from Black-ish and Millennial Jenny, is taking on the role of esteemed ballerina Faran, who plans to plier her way right out of Millwood, but A is going to give her a run for her money first.

"She is a force to be reckoned with," Zaria tells Who What Wear (opens in new tab) about her no-nonsense PLL character. "She had to grow up fast, so her maturity is evident."

Malia Pyles as Minnie

Minnie might be the quiet, introverted PLL cast member, be she warns us all not to underestimate her. Having dealt with serious childhood trauma, Minnie is much tougher than her name suggests. 

The actress behind it all, the 22-year-old Filipino-American Malia Pyles, is known for her roles in Memoria and Bella and the Bulldogs. 

Maia Reficco as Noa

Time to meet the athletic Noa, a role 22-year-old Maia—of Club 57 and Go—takes quite seriously. 

"Honestly, as a Latina and as a first Latina Liar ever, I think for me, my biggest priority was to represent my people and the stories that we're telling in the most accurate, responsible and respectful way I could," she told People (opens in new tab)
