Guess who might be returning to Pretty Little Liars later this season? Andrew Campbell, i.e. Spencer’s (Troian Bellisario) favorite strip-trivia partner. We have to admit: we’ve kind of missed the brainy-yet-brawny boy. But what does this mean for our beloved Spoby? Will Andrew come between Spencer and Toby (Keegan Allen)?
“Today a little birdy told me that Andrew Campbell might be coming back to Pretty Little Liars soon...” the actor behind the role, Brandon W. Jones tweeted on August 12. We haven’t seen Andrew since Season 3 when he tried to stop Spencer from tackling Mona at the academic decathlon (spoiler: he was unsuccessful). Though the two never actually dated, Andrew tried to help Spence through her rough patch post-Toby’s betrAyal (spoiler: he was also unsuccessful in this).
So, why is Andrew back? Well, we suppose the academic decathlon could come into play again, but we think their interaction may be more intense than that. In the book series, Spence and Andrew dated. This doesn’t automatically mean it will happen in the television show, but we can’t have been the only ones who sensed chemistry between these two last season? Andrew obviously cared about Spence enough to try to help her. Also, they’ve got a whole nerdy thing going.
Right now, Spoby is stronger than ever as Spence tries to help Toby through his search for the truth about his mother’s death, but if Brandon’s “little birdy” is telling the truth, then Andrew’s return most likely won’t happen until the end of Season 4 as the PLL cast and crew have already filmed through Episode 17. A lot can happen in a half-season...
