So long, Ravenswood. Caleb Rivers is officially returning to Rosewood! ABC Family announced today, March 12, that Tyler Blackburn has signed on to return to Pretty Little Liars as a series regular in Season 5.
According to the press release, Caleb will return to town — and to Hanna Marin’s life — early in the season as a full-fledged series regular. Does this mean so long Travis? We’ll have to wait and see what happens when Caleb returns to Rosewood High. And we’re really interested in how the Pretty Little Liars Powers That Be will wrap up Tyler’s story in Ravenswood. Will there be flashbacks? Or will the mystery behind Caleb’s reappearance be yet another question to add to our list of unanswered questions?
Regardless of how the writers decide to bring Caleb back, we’re just happy to have Haleb back on our TV screens. Of course, we don’t expect Hanna to jump into Caleb’s arms anytime soon (after all, he did break her heart). And we know there’s a slight chance Hanna finds herself in the middle of a love triangle in Season 5 — lucky her! — but as much as we love her newfound chemistry with Travis, their flirting can’t compete with Haleb’s epic romance.
Plus, the Liars are really going to need Caleb’s hacking skills in Season 5 when they go toe to toe with “A.”
