Pretty Little Liars may be off the air for a few months, with the exception of a unique Halloween installment, but creator Marlene King has given fans a reason to smile.
"We have two new Rosewood hotties coming to town," King tells The Hollywood Reporter.
We'll meet a childhood pal of Aria's in 2012.
We've already discussed one: Shane Coffey, who will debut in January as the son of Byron's former colleague.
"We find out he's been away from Rosewood for a while, but he's returned to town and he was Aria's childhood friend," King says. "He's the first guy we're casting as our male pretty little liar."Elsewhere, Alexander Nifong will appear as a character named Sam for at least one episode.
"He plays a blind student at the blind school where Jenna did her rehabilitation in Philadelphia," King says, "and he's going to play a significant role in the show."
Wait, so does this mean Jenna will NOT undergo sight-correcting surgery? No, she will go through with it, the producer teases. But it will remain a "mystery" whether or not the procedure is a success.
