It looks like Pretty Little Liars actress Janel Parrish (Mona Vanderwall) will be swapping Mona’s black hoodie for a white lab coat … at least temporarily.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Janel recently landed a guest role on an episode of Hawaii Five-O. In the episode, which is set to air next year, Janel plays a chemistry student who has big plans for herself in the medical field. But after someone/something gets in the way of her future, her ambitiousness turns to hurt and anger. Let’s just hope she doesn’t get angry in the same way that Mona gets angry. We’re not so sure Hawaii could handle that.

But regardless of her character’s mental state, we’re sure Janel is very excited to be heading home to Hawaii for work. The actress recently tweeted, “So happy to announce I will be going home to Hawaii for Thanksgiving with my family! And to film an episode of Hawaii Five O!”

There’s nothing better than a little family time in the sun. Well, unless you’re like Mona and prefer the darkness.

Catch the return of PLL Season 3 on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
