They reunite years later after they receive messages from a mysterious person who threatens that they will reveal their darkest secrets.

Although being filmed in Bali, the story will reportedly be based in fictional city Amerta.

Among cast members are Yuki Kato, Anya Geraldine, Eyka Farhana, Valerie Thomas and Shindy Huang.

According to PCCW Media Group managing director Janice Lee, Pretty Little Liars resonates with younger viewers, such as those, “with similar profiles to our Viu audience”.
