Emily is getting a new teammate and friend on the upcoming fifth season of ABC Family’s ‘Pretty Little Liars.’
According to The Hollywood Reporter, ‘Carrie Diaries’ actress Chloe Bridges will be swimming laps with Shay Mitchell’s character when the series returns this June.
Bridges is taking on the recurring role of Sydney Driscoll. Not only is she the newest member of Rosewood’s swim team, but she also makes friends with Emily. Uh oh, I sense a jealous Paige (Lindsey Shaw). I guess she should’ve thought twice about alerting the cops about Ali’s (Sasha Pieterse) whereabouts.
So, will Sydney just be a normal high school girl befriending Emily, or will she have a secret agenda, like most of the town? My money’s on the latter -- who’s really normal in Rosewood? This is pure speculation, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Bridges will pop up in multiple episodes, and we can expect to see her debut in the third episode.
In addition to Bridges, ‘PLL’ is also welcoming back a familiar face this summer. Now that his short-lived ‘Liars’ spin-off, ‘Ravenswood,’ is kaput, Tyler Blackburn -- and his hair -- will return to the series as the beloved Caleb Rivers. Haleb fans can rejoice, but now that Travis (Luke Kleintank) and Hanna (Ashley Benson) are locking lips, this might not be a happy reunion.
Season 5 of ‘PLL’ returns June 10 on ABC Family.
