It’s official! Tyler Blackburn will finally make his triumphant return to ABC Family’s hit series ‘Pretty Little Liars’ as the beloved Caleb Rivers, ABC Family announced today.
Per ABC Family, “Blackburn’s character Caleb Rivers will return to town and back into the lives of his ex, Hanna, and her fellow Liars. He will return early in the season as a full-fledged series regular.
As ‘PLL’ fans know, Blackburn left the series during the ‘Liars’ Halloween Season 4 special. This then opened the door for him to star as Caleb in the supernatural spin-off entitled ‘Ravenswood.’
After just 10 episodes, it was announced in February that ‘Ravenswood’ was officially canceled by the network. Speculation soon commenced on whether Caleb would return to Rosewood and if he would be reunited with his true love Hanna (Ashley Benson).
As excited as I am to see Caleb and his beautiful locks return to the fifth season, will Haleb get back together? My guess: not at first, especially now that Hanna’s found comfort in the ever so lovely Travis (Luke Kleintank). And, how is he going to explain to Hanna what the heck happened in Ravenswood? Will anyone believe him that he experienced the supernatural, talked to spirits and had feelings for Miranda the ghost?
I think things just got even more complicated and mysterious in the town of Rosewood. Regardless, Blackburn is excited, as he tweeted, "Thank you all for welcoming me back! Season 5 of @ABCFpll is going be intense!!"
Season 5 of ‘PLL’ begins June 10 at 8/7c on ABC Family. You can also catch the Season 4 finale next Tuesday.
