In Season 3 of Pretty Little Liars, we met Caleb’s estranged father, Jamie. Things got tense post-reunion when “A” framed Jamie for church bell theft and Caleb initially believed the carefully crafted slander. But we learned that the father and son patched things up over fishing and left their relationship on a relatively solid note pre-Ravenswood. So, will Jamie make an appearance on the Caleb-focused spinoff?

You betcha! According to PLL showrunner Marlene King, we will see Jamie on Ravenswood. She tweeted the confirmation in response to a fan question about Caleb’s pops on November 10. Finally, a Rivers family reunion! And after all the spooky happenings in Ravenswood, Jamie has some explaining to do.

We’re glad to hear about Jamie’s long-awaited return for a myriad of reasons. Firstly, it means we get to hang with Jamie again, who seemed like a pretty cool dude (you know, besides the whole abandoning Caleb into the foster care system part). Secondly, we will hopefully get to discover if Jamie knows about the Ravenswood curse. Perhaps he sent Caleb into foster care for the same reason Miranda’s uncle did: seemingly, to help her avoid the curse. (Didn’t work.)

Thirdly, we’re starting to feel bad for Caleb and his lack of support system in Ravenwood. His friends are dying. He finds out he’s part of a generations-old murderous curse. And, he has no loved ones to confide in! Sure, Remy gave him a hug once and Raymond Collins is letting him stay in his sweet carriage house pad, but these are poor substitutes for a Hanna or even a recently-reunited father. Get your act together, Team Caleb before Caleb gets smushed by a rogue chandelier.

Are you excited to hear Jamie will be making a visit to Ravenswood? Sound off in the comments below!
