Gotta secret, can you keep it?

After six years and 130 episodes, every single Pretty Little Liars fan knows the words to the drama's insanely catchy opening theme song. Now, as we approach the highly anticipated five-year time jump, fans are being gifted with a brand-new remake!

For the past six years, Aria (Lucy Hale) has been the star of the 20-second opening thanks to her cute secret-keeping shush at the end of the song. But now, it's time for all of the Liars to get their time to shine -- and only ETonline has your exclusive behind-the-scenes look at their sexy re-shoot!

So how did Lucy Hale feel about having to re-create her iconic "Shhh!" for the cameras again? "It was nerve-wracking for me!" the star revealed to ET during the winter TCA Press Tour on Saturday.

"For people who don’t watch the show, they chose a take where [my finger] was over here," She explained, while gesturing to the left side of her face, where her adorable off-centered shush took place. "I was so excited that I finally got another chance to get my finger centered -- and I finally did!"

Hale dished that unlike filming episodes of PLL, re-shooting the opening credits was an intimidating experience. "It was actually a day after a long day of shooting," the brunette beauty recalled.

"It made me nervous because it's just you and a green screen and I was like, 'They're going to see my finger shaking!'" she said with a laugh. "Everyone is just looking [at you, and] when you're in a [PLL] scene usually there's more people in it, but I was nervous!"

According to Hale, there were a lot of emotions and nuances that all the actresses had to convey in just one quick scene. "You want to look cute, but sexy, but mysterious and engaging and I don’t think any of those came across so… cool!" she joked.
