Ravenswood doesn’t premiere until October, but we’re already getting a good look at the cast! On Monday, it was revealed that newcomers Elizabeth Whitson and Brett Dier had been cast as twins Olivia and Abel in the upcoming Pretty Little Liars spin-off, but another casting has just been announced.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Merritt Patterson has joined the cast of the ABC Family show as Tess, the former best friend of Olivia. You might recognize her from Kyle XY — another ABC Family show — or Percy Jackson and the Olympians, as she had a brief appearance in that film.
Apparently, Merritt’s character will not be involved directly with the curse that plagues the small town near Rosewood, PA — where the Liars live — but will still appear as a series regular. Between Tyler Blackburn, and the other actors announced on Monday, the cast is coming together pretty well, don’t you think?
Ravenswood will premiere in October directly after the third annual Pretty Little Liars Halloween special, which will introduce all the Ravenswood characters.
