Remember that time when Caleb Rivers broke up with his girlfriend, Hanna Marin, in an attempt to keep her safe from a deadly curse and all the ghosts clamoring for his life? Well, unfortunately, Ravenswood was cancelled and we’re still heartbroken, FYI. However, there’s a silver lining: Tyler Blackburn is returning to Pretty Little Liars as a series regular which means that Caleb is returning to Rosewood, home of the Brew and the A. ABC Family recently announced the wonderful news and we couldn’t be more ecstatic!
So when’s the notorious hacker coming back? He won’t be in the PLL Season 4 finale, but don’t worry because he’ll be back early in the show’s fifth season, which premieres on Tuesday, June 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. According to the general synopsis the network provided, Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) is going to play a major role in the upcoming episodes so it will be interesting to see her interact with Hanna’s on-again, off-again beau.
As for Hanna (Ashley Benson), she’s most likely going to be excited to have her handsome first love nearby. She and Caleb are super-cute together, and they’ve supported each other through a lot of tough ordeals, including when Caleb reunited with the parents who abandoned him as a child and when Hanna’s mom Ashley was framed for Detective Wilden’s murder. “It’s a sweet reunion,” teases executive producer Oliver Goldstick.
As thrilled as we are, his return probably will raise a lot of confusion and questions for Hannakins, especially since she currently seems to be falling for the hardworking, considerate and soft-spoken Travis Hobbs (Luke Kleintank). Travis, who drives a tow truck and came to the Liars’ aid when Em’s broke down near Ezra’s sketchy woodland cabin, bravely stepped up to the plate and served as a defense witness during Wilden’s trial. His testimony helped keep Ashley Marin out of jail and orange jumpsuits for the time being. He and Hanna have even gone on a dinner date and shared a few steamy kisses.
Yikes — what a dilemma! Expect lots of relationship drama is all we can say.
That said, are you glad Caleb is moving back to Rosewood? Do you want him and Hanna to get back together? Post your thoughts in the comments!
