The original Pretty Little Liars ran from 2010 to 2017, but the series has never really left TV. Between 2019’s Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists and now the new series, Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, the suburbs of Pennsylvania have never been quiet for long. The new series is a terrifying update of the original series, a slasher teen drama for the 2020s with a soundtrack full of bops to match its dark vibes.

As the first series in the PLL franchise to stream on HBO Max instead of broadcast on Freeform (formerly ABC Family), the series’ schedule sticks to the modern method of debuting with multiple episodes. Viewers got three installments to kick off the new series on Thursday, July 28, and all three were full of bangers perfect for a late summer playlist. The next episodes, released in two-packs on August 4 and August 11, did not disappoint, bringing the jumpscares and new additions to the vibey soundtrack, too.

Like its predecessor, the dark mood of Original Sin immediately kicks off with an opening credits sequence set to the song “Secret,” by The Pierces. Of course, like the series itself, the theme song got a modern, spooky remix. And it’s not just the title sequence song that’s haunting; from Rob Zombie to The Linda Lindas, the artists on the show’s soundtrack bring all the dark vibes.
