Sofia Carson is spilling brand new details about Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists!

Freeform has yet to announce if the PLL spinoff has been official picked up to series, but we're already dying to know which Rosewood residents could be making their way over to the new fictional town of Beacon Heights.

It was previously announced that the new series will welcome back PLL veterans Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish as Alison DiLaurentis and Mona Vanderwaal, respectively, with Carson starring  as new character Ava, a beautiful, trendsetting blogger and coder who strives to be a fashion icon.

Carson, who finished filming The Perfectionists pilot in Portland, Oregon, at the end of March, dished to ET's Lauren Zima that her time on set was a career highlight.

"Everything about it was so surreal -- it was such a dream," she gushed. "I'm so honored to be a part of it and to work with [Pretty Little Liars executive producer] Marlene King. It's such a female-centered story, which I love so much, so there are tons of secrets, as you can imagine, that I can't tell you about yet."

Although the Descendants star was tight-lipped about any plot-centric secrets, Carson did reveal that more of Pretty Little Liars' original cast members may be involved with the spinoff if Freeform gives the series the greenlight.

"I've heard Troian [Bellisario] and I've heard Lucy [Hale], so hopefully they'll be involved. As much as they would want to, we will have them," she beamed.

When we followed up and asked if their roles on The Perfectionists would be onscreen or behind the scenes, Carson had an optimistic response. "Hopefully both!" she exclaimed.

Luckily for PLL fans, this is not the first we've heard of Hale and Bellisario's potential involvement in the new series. Hale recently stopped by ET for an in-depth interview and she revealed that she would "absolutely" love to reprise her role as Aria Montgomery because she's "very curious" to see how these two worlds will collide.

Meanwhile, Bellisario recently spilled to ET's Keltie Knight that she's already in talks to direct a future episode of the spinoff drama. "They were like, 'You should come direct an episode!' and I thought that would be so much fun!" she said, adding that she would be "delighted" to step behind the camera again following her directorial debut on Pretty Little Liars.

Regardless of Hale and Bellisario's rumored involvement, Carson is excited for viewers to get to know the residents of Beacon Heights. "It's a whole new cast. It's a whole new story line. It has definitely inspiration from PLL, as well as Allison and Mona, which is so cool, but it's a whole new world."

When asked why PLL fans will love this potential new chapter, Carson was quick to offer multiple reasons why The Perfectionists will keep audiences hooked. "It is dramatic, it's dark, it's mysterious, it's romantic and full of secrets as the PLL world goes," she said. "There's a sensation of being constantly watched as well, like there was in PLL, so there's the same essence of the story."

"I'm hoping they'll love it," Carson continued. "The reaction has been so amazing so far. It was so overwhelming when it was announced that I was cast, so I hope they love it as much as we do. We're pouring our hearts into it, so we're really excited."
