Ever since it was announced that General Hospital's Hayley Erin (Kiki Jerome) landed a role in a Pretty Little Liars spinoff pilot called The Perfectionists, fans have worried she might be leaving the ABC soap opera. But are those worries necessary?
In a move that was widely expected, Freeform has picked up Perfectionists for a ten-episode run.
With speculation about her GH status increasing, Erin finally opened up about her plans -- at least as far as she can see them in the moment.
"I suppose I'll address this now... I have no plans to leave and hopefully it will all work out," she shared.

Freeform is part of the ABC Disney family, so it's quite possible that will give Erin some flexibility in terms of keeping both her GH gig and her PLL-related project. Time will tell whether or not she's able to manage both, but at least fans can rest assured that she hopes to continue being a part of Port Charles.
The Perfectionists stars Sydney Park, Eli Brown, Sasha Pieterse, Janel Parrish, Sofia Carson, Kelly Rutherford, and Erin. At this time, the only thing known about Erin's as-yet-unnamed character is that she's "mysterious."
Based on the popular book series of the same name, The Perfectionists takes place in the town of Beacon Heights, "where everything seems perfect, from their top-tier college to their overachieving residents. But nothing in Beacon Heights is as it appears to be. The stress of needing to be perfect leads to the town's first murder. Behind every Perfectionist is a secret, a lie and a needed alibi."
Erin joined the cast of GH in 2015, following the news that original portrayer Kristen Alderson would be departing the role. She just recently earned a Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Younger Actress category.
UPDATE (May 15, 2018): This article was updated to reflect Freeform's decision to greenlight the series.
