‘Pretty Little Liars’ Spinoff ‘Ravenswood’ Casts Brett Dier, Elizabeth Whitson

ABC Family announced today that it has cast two new series regulars in for its Pretty Little Liars spin-off series, Ravenswood.

Brett Dier (The L.A. Complex) will star as Abel, a lone wolf with an old soul whose trust is hard won but who is loyal until the end, and Elizabeth Whitson will star as Olivia, a once carefree and effortlessly happy spirit who has recently experienced hardship, leaving her questioning what’s important and what no longer matters. Abel and Olivia are twins whom fans will first meet during the Pretty Little Liars special Halloween episode.

They join the recently cast Tyler Blackburn, who’ll bring his Pretty Little Liars character Caleb over to Ravenswood as a series regular.

Ravenswood will center on a town, not far from Rosewood, PA (the home base of Pretty Little Liars), which has suffered under a deadly curse for generations. Five strangers suddenly find themselves connected by this fatal curse and need to dig into the town’s mysterious and terrible history before it’s too late for each of them.

Season 4 of “Pretty Little Liars” will premiere Tuesday, June 11, on ABC Family, as the Liars strive to make sense of the mysterious “Red Coat” and what plans he or she may have in store for them.

Pretty Little Liars and Ravenswood are produced by Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television and are executive produced by I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick, Leslie Morgenstein and Joseph Dougherty.
