Sorry to be the bearers of bad news, but Pretty Little Liars is about to leave us for a while. Aside from the Season 4 Halloween special on October 22, the show will be off the air until January 2014. But fear not! While PLL is on a break, ABC Family will run its brand new spin-off Ravenswood, which just so happens to star PLL’s own Caleb (Tyler Blackburn).
Ravenswood premieres right after the Pretty Little Liars Halloween special, and the series premiere picks up right where the Halloween show left off. During PLL’s episode, Caleb will meet Miranda (Nicole Gale Anderson), whom ABC Family’s official synopsis describes as a “kindred soul.” Naturally, this phrasing leaves us feeling all sorts of freaked out.
Caleb can’t be kindred souls with some new girl! What about his relationship with Hanna (Ashley Benson)?! It can’t really all be over... can it? Luckily, the Ravenswood synopsis refers to Miranda as Caleb’s “new pal,” which certainly sounds a lot more platonic. Perhaps there’s still hope for Haleb just yet.
Here's the official ABC Family synopsis of the episode:
"The mysteries continue in the series premiere of “Ravenswood." After opting to stay in Ravenswood to help out new pal Miranda, Caleb begins to rethink his decision, especially after he meets Miranda’s cold and unwelcoming uncle Raymond (Steven Cabral). Caleb also has some unpleasant interactions with local resident Luke (Brett Dier), who is struggling to deal with a recent family tragedy and its ensuing scandal, which has also swept up his twin sister Olivia (Merritt Patterson).
Unnerved by what they witnessed the night of the party, and besieged by strange and supernatural occurrences, Caleb and Miranda begin to investigate this bizarre town. Their first ally is Ravenswood teen Remy (Britne Oldford), who has a keen insight to the town’s peculiar history and has started connecting some troublesome dots. These five teens have no idea how connected their lives are and the plans that Ravenswood has in store for them."
Catch the series premiere of Ravenswood right after the Pretty Little Liars Halloween episode on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 on ABC Family.
