ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars Spinoff- Ravenswood



The secret has been reveAled. No, not who A is, but that ABC family is following in The CW’s lead and creating a spin-off of its largely successful show, Pretty Little Liars. With the announcement of Ravenswood, ABC Family also announced that PLL has been picked up for a 5th season. Yeah, after that finale it better have been picked up or there would have been a million angry fans.

So when can we expect Ravenswood and what can we expect from it? Ravenswood, created by PLL executive producers, Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick, Joseph Dougherty, and Leslie Morgenstein, will piggy back off of the annual PLL Halloween episode in October. Ravenswood is a small town in PA, right next to Rosewood, that has been suffering from a long and deadly curse. Five strangers will come to investigate the occurrences when they find themselves personally affected.

If your like me and you like spoilers and trying to figure out what will happen before it happens, you might want to look into Google and see that a movie called Ravenswood already exists and it is about a girl who went missing 10 years before hand and in 2012 a sheriff decides to look for her. Marlene King teased that someone in fact is missing in the beginning of the show. Maybe thats where the idea stemmed from?

Will this show be another all girl casting or will the group of 5 strangers be mixed? Who would you like to see as part of the new Ravenswood team??? Will any of the PLL stars be connected? What will this deadly curse be? Will the show feature anything mystical (like The Vampire Diaries) or will it solely follow a pattern that PLL has followed: ugly and confusing twist and turns that keep our brains churning. Will the two towns ever connect?

With so much buzz and excitement around Pretty Little Liars and The Vampire Diaries, are producers taking things too far by creating spin-offs?? First, TVD creates The Originals. Now PLL creates Ravenswood. Will fans get bored and need something new? My guess; no. The writers are very talented and creative and the idea of Ravenswood is recycled but fresh at the same time. With The Originals, that idea could go down the toilet really quickly, as there can only be so much happening with the mystical world until it all starts to make absolutely no sense and fall into “The Secret Circle.”

Here’s who I’d like to see in Ravenswood.

Sarah Hyland of Modern Family. Although she’s already 21, she fits the description of what I think a girl from Ravenswood would definitely look like. ( I mean have you seen the girls in Rosewood?) Those big bug eyes and that Alison charm. Yep. She’s a dead ringer for Ali with a flair of Mila Kunis.

Jason Earles, better known as Jackson on Hannah Montana. Come on, you have to have a career after that show. Plus that blonde hair, those blue eyes, he’s like Toby. Granted he’s married and 34, but ABC family has a way of making people much younger than they really are.
Coming off of Nickelodeon and straight to ABC family would be a neat transition for Victoria Justice. Plus, I’m sure the producers would love her with her keen resemblance to TVD star Nina Dobrev.
Hunter Parish. The 23-year-old actor has the look that could transform him from Showtimes Weeds right to Ravenswood, PA. Just look at that brood.
Who would you like to see on Ravenswood this October?

Torrey DeVitto, Yaya DaCosta Leaving ‘Chicago Med’ Ahead of Season 7



Chicago Med Lemons and Lemonade

Someone rush over a crash cart because this news has crushed us!

Chicago Med is losing two incredible cast members ahead of the NBC drama’s seventh season. 

Torrey DeVitto, who plays doctor Natalie Manning, and Yaya DaCosta, who plays nurse April Sexton, will not be returning in the fall, per Deadline.

DaCosta is leaving to lead Lee Daniels’ Our Kind of People, which nabbed a straight-to-series order at FOX. 

DeVitto, from Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill fame, will star in an upcoming indie film titled Skelly. 

She even confirmed the news to her fans on social media, writing: “Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag…All good things must come to an end.

It has been such an honor and pure joy to bring Dr. Natalie Manning to life for all of you on Chicago Med for the past 6 seasons. But it is now time for her and me to bow out and say goodbye.

Thank you to all you loyal watchers who adored her as much as I did.

I can’t wait to share what’s to come with all of you. New adventures await!”

Both DeVitto and DaCosta have appeared in the #OneChicago franchise since Med’s premiere in 2015.

Per the publication, their contracts were up at the end of season 6 and both actresses decided not to renew. 

The rest of the cast ( S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles, Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead, Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi and Marlyne Barrett as nurse Maggie Lockwood) is expected to return pending contract negotiations.

All three Chicago shows were renewed for three additional seasons back in 2020 — Chicago Fire through season 11, Chicago PD through season 10, and Chicago Med through season 8.

The current storylines have seemingly been setting up for the actresses’ exits as Manning found herself in hot water after stealing medication to help her mother, while April decided to return to nursing school. 

We’ll definitely miss DeVitto and DaCosta, but we wish them the best of luck in future projects!
