We separate the excerpts from the main criticisms:
“The production manages to capture the spirit of the original series, but in a new era. The plot brings an interesting new mystery, updated with modern and relevant dramas.” (United Press International)
“A teen drama full of mysteries and twists. It is not necessary to have watched the original series, as the plot does a good job of updating you on what happened.” (Mama’s Greeky)
“If you don’t think too much about the logistics of its mysteries, the series offers enough intrigue to keep your attention until the next episode. It may not seem like much, but many reboots have failed to deliver even that, which makes ‘Original Sin’ a standout.” (Variety)
“This reboot may not be as addictive as its predecessor, but anyone who loves teen thrillers about pretty girls being mean will love this series. It’s like a mix between ‘Clube dos Cinco’ and ‘Scream’.” (decide)
“For fans of the original series, this reboot deserves to be seen. The plot takes all the intrigue and mystery of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ and creates something innovative.” (Paste Magazine)
It is worth remembering that the production will officially debut on July 28th.
