Fans of Pretty Little Liars will be thrilled to know that the wait for Shay Mitchell to return to television is going to be short lived. News broke yesterday that Shay is heading to Lifetime for a starting role in the upcoming thriller You.
The thriller is based on a novel of the same name written by Caroline Kepnes and will be produced by Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble. Other names associated with the project already are Penn Badgley, Elizabeth Lail, Zach Cherry, and Luca Padovan.
Shay will play the role of Peach Salinger, who is incredibly wealthy and has resources that give her a total ‘it girl’ status among a wealthy group of friends.
The series is a ten episode television event set to debut in 2018, and while fans wait, the novel is available to read if you want to find out all the secrets of the characters before they’re brought to television.
