Shay Mitchell, Troian Bellisario, Sasha Pieterse, Janel Parrish, Keegan Allen, Tyler Blackburn and Ian Harding were joined at the panel by executive producers I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick and Joseph Dougherty.
OTRC.com correspondent Tony Cabrera had a chance to talk to the stars just before the event and they dished out a few tidbits about the new season and the spinoff “Ravenswood.”
Check out three new things we learned from the cast and producers below.
1. This is the season of answers.
King told OTRC.com before the panel that this season is about answers.
“Our fans have been so patient, they’ve been so loyal. They’ve been trying to find out the answers to questions for so long and this is the season,” she said. “We decided we’re not going to wait until the final season of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ to reveal all these answers, we’re giving a lot of answers this season and we think the fans have earned it so that’s what I think we’re really most excited about.”
King also said during the panel this is the season we find out whether Alison is alive or dead and what happened on the night she died. Janel Parrish also previously told us that during season 4, viewers will find out who “Red Coat” is and what was in Detective Wilden’s trunk.
2. Caleb’s move to Ravenswood and what it means for his relationship with Hanna.
Tyler Blackburn, who plays Caleb on the show, has been cast as one of the leads on the upcoming “Pretty Little Liars” spinoff “Ravenswood.” So what does this mean for his relationship with Hanna? During the Panel, Blackburn was a little mysterious about the subject and said that things with Hanna sort of end with an ellipsis.
The Pretty Little Liars mid-season three finale featured a reveal of massive proportions as Toby was unmasked as a member of The ‘A’ Team! The moment not only came as a surprise to fans, but also to the actors as well since two alternate reveals — It’s Caleb! It’s Paige! — were filmed to help keep the secret.
Now, for the first time, ETonline can exclusively present those unaired moments, which are also featured on the upcoming season three DVD. Check out their turns above, and keep watching to hear the cast recall their reactions to Toby’s unmasking! Pretty Little Liars: The Complete Third Season hits DVD on June 4.
Two weeks ago, ABC Family debuted the official poster for season four and now, The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts the first footage of the new summer episodes with a brand new promo.
The 30-second teaser, which officially debuts on ABC Family the week of May 13, picks up moments following the aftermath of the fire that threatened the four Liars’ lives. “She set us up,” Aria (Lucy Hale) says to her friends. Who is “she”? Likely the troublesome and omnipresent “A” or Red Coat, who is proving to be just as problematic for the girls.
“I need to find out who Red Coat is,” Mona (Janel Parrish) tells the foursome. “She tried to kill all of us.” Is Mona newly reformed? Is she back on the Liars’ side now?Later Aria, Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) recite yet another text from “A,” but this time Mona’s in on it as well. The offending message? “The truth won’t set you free. I’m going to be bury you with it. — A.” Before Emily gets a worrisome text (or photo?): “Oh my god …”
Flashes of a teary Aria in camouflage, the girls in various states of distress (are you surprised?), Toby (Keegan Allen) hiding in the bushes, a tarped body, a crazed driver and Emily pushing someone to safety. What was in the trunk of Detective Wilden’s police car? Is that why the Liars are all dressed in black?
