Freeform has canceled its “Pretty Little Liars” spinoff “The Perfectionists” after one 10-episode season, the network said on Friday.

The news comes months after the series wrapped its 10-episode run in May.

Led by original “Pretty Little Liars” stars Janel Parrish and Sasha Pieterse, “The Perfectionists” was an adaptation of the book series of the same name by “PLL” author Sara Shepard. The spinoff transplanted Parrish and Pieterse’s characters to the town of Beacon Heights — where everything seems perfect, from its top-tier college to its overachieving residents — as it is rocked by its first murder.

“Descendants” star Sophia Carson, Sydney Park and Eli Brown also starred in the series. “Pretty Little Liars” and “Famous in Love” showrunner I. Marlene King wrote the pilot and served as executive producer.

Earlier this year King signed a deal to develop new projects for 20th Century Fox, bringing her production company over from Warner Bros. to the studio aligned with Freeform under Disney ownership.

Freeform’s current drama slate includes “The Bold Type,” “Siren,” “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” and the “Fosters” spinoff “Good Trouble.” The cable network is also gearing up to launch its deportation-themed reboot of “Party of Five” and the fantasy series “Motherland: Fort Salem.” Earlier this week, Freeform also gave a pilot order to the Jessica Biel-produced thriller “Last Summer.”
