Tyler Blackburn, who plays Hanna’s (Ashley Benson) boyfriend Caleb Rivers, is the first star to be cast on the new ABC Family series. His character will cross over to Ravenswood as a permanent cast member. The series is set to premiere this October after the annual Pretty Little Liars Halloween episode.
From Pretty Little Liars executive producers I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick, Joseph Dougherty and Leslie Morgenstein, 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.
Blackburn, who first appeared in the 14th episode of season one, will continue to be featured as part of the Pretty Little Liars cast during the summer season. Tyler’s technical prowess should come in handy as the characters try to solve the mystery involving the curse. With his brooding demeanor, guarded heart and prideful nature, Caleb would be sure to complicate the life of any girl he meets in town.
Pretty Little Liars’ season four premiere airs Tuesday, June 11 on ABC Family.
