With exec producer Marlene King recently teasing that there are some “big ideas in play for a movie,” we caught up with star Shay Mitchell ahead of the People’s Choice Awards in January 2016 to get her take on the future of the show.
At the time, Shay wouldn’t confirm speculation that the series would be ending after season 7, but she did say that she’d “love to do a movie.” She’s even got some ideas about where it should be set.
“I think it would be fun if all of us girls were like, ‘Let’s go to Europe and shoot it.’ We could be chased by somebody there,” said Mitchell, who plays Emily on the on the Freeform drama. “We’ll have to see if that happens, but I would be a big fan of traveling somewhere to shoot.”
Considering Spencer got to go abroad (well, during the time jump at least), it’s seems only fair that the rest of the girls should be able to join in on the fun!
Shay’s not the only one excited about the possibility of a movie. Given the fact that the show was voted “Favorite Cable TV Drama” by fans at People’s Choice Awards 2016 (watch Troian Bellisario’s terrific speech on behalf of the cast here) — we suspect viewers would be more than willing to follow the girls on a new adventure outside of Rosewood.
What do you think of Shay’s idea? Would you watch a PLL movie?
