Pretty Little Liars reboot Original Sin has added some new cast members to play its fresh set of characters.

As reported by The Wrap, the show has cast Malia Pyles – who played Parker Torres in Batwoman – and Zaria – who has starred in Black-ish and Jamie Foxx's Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! – as two important characters.

Pyles will play the youngest but perhaps most intuitive member of the group, Minnie. Her character spends a lot of time living online, trying to find escapism from the memories of a childhood trauma.

Zaria will portray the character Faran, a ballerina who has ambitions to get the hell out of Millwood. Even more so than the mysterious assailant 'A', Faran will struggle to deal with the microaggressions she faces on a daily basis.

"Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart," the official synopsis reads.

"Now, in the present day, a group of disparate teen girls – a brand-new set of 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."
