It’s a big day for Pretty Little Liars fans. Not only was it just announced that the ABC Family drama has been renewed for a fifth season, but it was revealed that a new spinoff series – titled Ravenswood – will debut in the fall! PLL star Lucy Hale tweeted about the exciting news:
“Big news day for PLL-we officially got picked up for season 5 AND a spinoff coming ur way in October. Even I can’t wrap my head around it!”
Here’s what E! News had to say about the spinoff: “Ravenswood will center on a town close to Rosewood, Penn.,—where PLL is set—which has been suffering from a deadly curse for generations. Five strangers will find themselves connected by the fatal curse and will work together to dig into the town’s mysterious and terrible history before it’s too late. The series will premiere after Pretty Little Liars‘ annual Halloween special in October 2013.”
PLL‘s executive producer Marlene King tweeted about the series, but wasn’t revealing who would be in the cast. “We can’t tell you who’s in it yet. Like Rosewood, Ravenswood has dark secrets,” she wrote.
