It took a whole season for Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) mom to return to Rosewood, but she'll finally be there for Season 2. That's right: Viewers can expect appearances from Alison’s mom, Jessica DiLaurentis, since Andrea Parker has been tipped to play her in a recurring role. She'll first appear in the sixth episode of the new season to oversee a charity fashion show dedicated to her daughter. Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Hanna (Ashley Benson) will help run the event and Mrs. DiLaurentis will be as glad to see them as they are to see her.

But don’t expect this happy reunion to last long. Jessica, like most people in Rosewood, may be up to something. Examiner reports that “underneath the surface it appears as though she will have some rather shady motives for being back in Rosewood — and it could cause some serious problems for some of the other characters.” We're guessing she'll somehow complicate the little liars' lives even more. Maybe Jessica has some skeletons in her closet, just like her suspicious son, Jason — after all, secrets do seem to run in the family!
