The longer we go without seeing Jason (Drew Van Acker) on Pretty Little Liars, the more we worry. We learned our lesson the hard way with Maya that just because we don’t see someone bite the dust, doesn’t mean they’re safe from the PLL Powers’ That Be hatchet. Luckily, we have hope. Executive producer Oliver Goldstick sat down with TV Guide to spill on the future of Rosewood’s residents, including the return of our favorite big brother.

Will Jason make an appearance when his mother, Mrs. Dilaurentis, returns to Rosewood with an “intriguing and peculiar” agenda?: Not right away, no,” said Oliver.

Usually, this sort of vague answer would not make us feel better, but given that we weren’t sure if Jason would be returning at all, this is good news. Hopefully, we’ll be getting the answer to What is in Wilden’s Trunk? in the Season 4 premiere, which would mean it couldn’t be Jason! I mean, that doesn’t mean he’s not in the trunk of someone else’s car, but we have to take good news where we can get it, right?

The last time we saw Jason, he had narrowly escaped death-by-elevator-car trying in a bid to retrieve evidence that Wilden and Ali were together the summer she died. He disappeared from the hospital hours after the accident, leaving the Liars (and us) to wonder what happened. Did he leave on his own free will or did someone take him?

We’ll have to wait until Season 4 to find out, but we’re happy to hear he will be returning... let’s just hope it’s not in a body bag.

What do you think happened to Jason? How do you think he will return to Rosewood? Let us know in the comments below!
