With HBO Max sharing a trailer with “series finale” for Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, it begs whether it was a limited series the whole time.

Sometimes, a show doesn’t need more than one season. If it has a clear beginning, middle, and end, the story can wrap and that’s it. These shows are called mini-series or limited series, with the intention of telling a story that’s more detailed than a movie would be able to offer it.

HBO Max has brought a trailer out for the final three episodes of Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin*. This trailer calls the final three episodes the “series finale,” which suggests that there isn’t going to be a second season.

Was Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin a limited series?

Is it possible that this was always a plan? We won’t really know until we see the final episodes. We’ll have to wait and see if there is a full story wrapped up. We do follow a few people who got screeners, and they share they won’t be disappointed if the show is a limited series—and that’s not because the show is bad. The ending is wrapped enough, apparently.

However, when the series was originally ordered, it wasn’t billed as a limited series. It is possible that the show’s writers had a feeling that it would be one and done. Or it’s possible that the writers didn’t want the multiple red herrings that got annoying in the original series. Either way, we’re probably going to have to prepare for the end.
