Nicole Gale Anderson has been cast as a series regular in the upcoming season of Pretty Little Liars spinoff, Ravenswood.
The 22-year-old star is known for her roles in Make it or Break it and Mean Girls 2. In Ravenswood she will play series regular, Miranda, a foster kid who relies on her wits to cover emotional scars.
As we reported earlier in the week, former Kyle XY and Supernatrual star, Merritt Patterson has also been cast, she will also play series regular, Tess.
Tess is Olivia’s former best friend who is not involved with the curse. She will star in the Ravenswood episodes that follow the Halloween instalments.
Meanwhile, Brett Dier and Elizabeth Whitson will star as twins, Abel and Olivia and Tyler Blackburn will play Caleb – he is set to leave Rosewood in favour of his new home in Ravenswood. He will be seen travelling to Ravenswood during the Halloween episode in October.
Abel has been described as a “lone wolf with an old soul whose trust is hard-won, but who is loyal to the end”. There is something dangerous lurking inside of him, however, once he trusts you, he will never let you down. Olivia on the other hand is more of a “happy spirit who has recently experienced hardship” which leaves her “questioning what’s important”. She is a former quirky prom queen who experienced a hefty fall from grace and she’s just beginning to learn who her real friends are.
Now, according to the official synopsis from ABC, five strangers will find themselves brought together by a fatal curse. Five series regulars have been cast thus far, are these characters our main crop? We’ll have to wait and see.
The official synopsis reads: “Ravenswood will center on a town, not far from Rosewood, PA, 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.”
Details surrounding the spin-off are currently under wraps, all we know at present is that the new town is riddled with dark twisted scandals and secrets. It will feature plenty of mystery, drama, friendships and suspense that will require dedication from fans.
