Listen, we love Pretty Little Liars. However, we have to admit we find it a little bit odd that if someone started watching the show with Season 3, they'd have a hard time figuring out that Aria (Lucy Hale) even has a little brother.

Yes … but we might have to wait a while.

When recently asked via Twitter if we'll see Mike again, Marlene replied, "Yes."

But before Mike fans start celebrating, you should know that back in July, Marlene said we won't see Mike in the Season 3 summer season, though he may show up come winter.

It's possible Marlene changed her mind, but since the cast and crew are already chugging away at the winter season — last we heard Marlene was working on Season 3, Episode 16: "Misery Loves Company" — it's also very possible Mike won't be making a reappearance for many months to come.

Still, it's good to know he hasn't totally fallen off the face of the earth!
