According to a Variety report, Salonga will play the role of Elodie, the overbearing mother of Minnie (Malia Pyles) “who works overtime to protect her daughter from her childhood trauma.”

Variety also said “the series is set in the present, 20 years after a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, a disparate group of teen girls — the new ‘Little Liars’ — find themselves tormented by an unknown ‘Assailant’ and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago, as well as their own.”

The original “Pretty Little Liars” bowed out in 2017 after seven seasons.
