We’re still reeling from the mid-season finale of Pretty Little Liars (the fear of back-fat is still haunting us), but let’s keep our eye on the prize: Winter season.

We don’t know what’s going to happen when we return to PLL, but one things for certain –– they’ll be some new blood for “A” to spill. Give a warm Rosewood welcome to Alexander Nifong and Shane Coffey, Pretty Little Liars’ newest cast members!

Alexander (who starred as Jeremiah in Glee), will play Sam, one of Jenna (Tammin Sursok)’s friends from rehabilitation school for the blind in Philadelphia. “He’s going to play a significant role in the show,” Marlene King teases to The Hollywood Reporter.

Sigh, Rosewood’s local Sunglasses Hut better put an extra order for “creepy stunner shades.”

Shane Coffey (of Secret Life of The American Teenager fame) will appear as Holden in episode 2.16 and 2.17. “We find out he's been away from Rosewood for a while, but he's returned to town and he was Aria [Lucy Hale]’s childhood friend,” Marlene reveals, “He's the first guy we're casting as our male pretty little liar.... He comes in with a big lie that's really fun.”

Wait, is the fab four about to become the fab five? Holden better pack his closet full of stilettos and shoulder-less shirts, otherwise he’ll never fit in with the rest of the crew.
