We know we're not the only ones who are excited for Twisted, the new ABC Family show that will air after Pretty Little Liars Season 4, starting in June. Twisted shares a lot of things in common with our fav show — it's also teen-centric with a heavy dose of murder and mystery, and PLL writer Andy Reaser is now working on this new project. Suffice it to say, we have our ears peeled for news of this ABC Family newbie, so the most recent Twisted casting announcement has us very excited.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jessica Tuck and Robin Givens have both scored recurring roles on the show.
Jessica Tuck plays Gloria, "the mother of deceased student Regina Crane." The character is "uptight" and has "a bone to pick with Karen Desai." You may know Jessica as Nan Flanagan from True Blood or Catherine from Grimm — both feisty blondes who have a knack for murder, which seems Twisted enough for us!
Meanwhile, Robin Givens, who you may know as Jane Bentley from the sadly-cancelled Chuck, will play "Lacey's hip and outgoing mother," who runs in the "same social circle as Gloria."
What do you think of this casting news? Are you excited for Twisted? Sound off in the comments below!
Pretty Little Liars Season 4 premieres on Tuesday, June 11, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
