“Pretty Little Liars” season 5 is about to go into production, and in addition to “Ravenswood” cast member Tyler Blackburn returning to PLL it sounds like some of the other “Ravenswood” cast members will be visiting the show set as well! Here’s a note from “Pretty Little Liars” executive producer Marlene King:

We have a way to sort of visit a mini version of Ravenswood and I think we’ll probably try to do that, so that even as writers we have a little closure on that story. We didn’t have much of a chance to get that story told, but we’ll find some closure there. We’ve certainly talked about it [the cast guest starring]. The [Ravenswood] kids are all fantastic and they have become good friends with Caleb, so it’s certainly possible that they would come into his life when he returns to Rosewood.

Luke Matheson, we hardly knew you. Brett Dier has booked his first role since the untimely cancellation of ABC Family’s Ravenswood, and we have to admit: it sounds pretty interesting!

Deadline reports that the former Ravenswood star has joined the CW’s new pilot, Jane the Virgin, which means we’ll be seeing plenty of shirtless Brett on our TV screens. Brett will play Michael, a cop and protagonist Jane’s (Gina Rodriguez) “steadfast boyfriend who has secrets of his own.” So it looks like the 24-year-old is finally ready to put his high school days behind him.

Jane the Virgin follows Jane, a “hardworking religious girl who, due to a series of outrageous events, is accidentally artificially inseminated.” Um, what? We have a hard time seeing how that could happen, but then again, this is the CW — and stranger things have happened. Israeli actress Yael Grobglas will play Monica, who is “left reeling when her husband’s sperm is used to inseminate the wrong girl.” Now that’s awkward. This show sound too crazy not to be on TV! Hopefully, this pilot gets picked up by the network so we can see Brett back on our screens — we were beginning to miss his humor and studly good looks.

Tyler is such a class act. Here’s what he had to say about the shows cancellation.

News of Ravenswood’s cancellation sent a flurry of supportive tweets in star Tyler Blackburn’s (Caleb) direction. So, how did he react to the cancellation and all of the fan love that came with it?

“Thanks for all of your supportive tweets!” Tyler tweeted Sunday, following the news that Ravenswood would not be returning following the 10-episode first season it recently ended on a quasi-cliffhanger. “Onward and upwards. You never know when you’ll see me on screen again.”

Will one of those screens be Pretty Little Liars? Word on the street is that the character of Caleb may be returning to the show from whence he sprang. It will be a bit awkward to reintegrate him back onto the show given that both Ravenswood spent a good part of its narrative energy trying to convince viewers Caleb needed to stay in the ghosty town (spoiler: it didn’t work). However, he hasn’t been absent long enough from Pretty Little Liars, where the Liars’ love interests often disappear for strings of episodes at a time while our girls concentrate on the “A” game, for it to affect that show so much.

Even if Tyler doesn’t return to Pretty Little Liars (which we think is a big if), we doubt this is the last time we’ve seen the hunky young actor grace our screens, especially given his go-get-em attitude. In fact, we’re excited to see what all of the Ravenswood actors do next. Though the show never really clicked as a compelling story, it introduced us to some talented young actors. Until we meet again, Ravenswood crew.

Unfortunately earlier today news broke that ABC Family decided to drop Ravenswood from it’s lineup as seen below.

The Pretty Little Liars spinoff starred Tyler Blackburn and recently ended its 10-episode run Feb. 4 with 1.4 million viewers.

Ravenswood was given a straight-to-series order early last year, but has never been a ratings performer like its mothership since debuting in October.

So that may bring people to wonder what is going to happen to this website. Megan and I will be keeping the site open as a tribute to a show that we felt was wonderful and different; we will continue to keep you up to date with the casts future projects and their lives. Just because Ravenswood was cancelled doesn’t mean that we can’t continue supporting the cast!

Luke Benward, star of the Disney Channel Original Movie ‘Cloud 9′ and ABC Family’s Ravenswood, made an appearance on AfterBuzz TV’s long-form interview show, Chatting with Cathy, Tuesday afternoon. In the interview, Benward talks about taping auditions with Miley Cyrus and discloses how he was nearly cast for the role of Luke on Ravenswood before they offered him his part as Dillon. The teen actor also expresses his obsession with the Star Wars franchise, desire to be in the upcoming films, as well as revealing which A-list actor’s career he hopes to emulate.

Benward, who landed his breakout role in ‘We Were Soldiers’ at the age of 5-years-old, says he fell into acting. Although the only thing he remembers about the audition for the role is getting out of school early, the actor does remember being on set with Mel Gibson. “Mel was an amazing man and incredibly kind with us kids. He would do magic tricks at lunch,” says Benward, “He would wrestle with us between takes. It was a great experience.”

Growing up, Benward’s family lived outside Nashville, TN, a long ways from most movie studios. His mother, an actor as well, used to put Benward and other local child actors on tape for auditions. “I booked How to Eat Fried Worms, when I was really young off tape,” the actor says. “We did a lot of taped auditions…if you want to see the kitchen we taped in, go look up Miley [Cyrus'] Hannah Montana audition, because my mom put her on tape for that. It was in [my family's] kitchen.”

The auditions worked for both Cyrus and Benward: he booked two Disney Channel pilots and several movies. Most recently, Benward starred as William Cloud in the DCOM ‘Cloud 9′ and as Dillon on the ABC Family teen drama, ‘Ravenswood.’

Benward explains how he landed the role on the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ spin-off. “I originally went in and tested for the character of Luke. I was there with Brett [Dier]…I got the feedback that [the producers] really liked me, but that they felt that I was too young looking to play Olivia’s brother. About a week later, they were like, “Hey, does Luke want to test for another character. It’s just him right now…he’s the only one in our minds for it.” I went in and they told me this character is the boy next door but he’s going to have a twist.”

Moving forward, the 18-year-old says he hopes to emulate the career of Leonardo DiCaprio. “I’m a big Leonardo DiCaprio fan. And if I could have a career like his…he’s amazing. And not only his career, his public persona and how he carries himself.”

In addition to revealing which actor he looks up to in the industry, Benward also shares his dream role. “I watched the [Star Wars] movies when I was growing up and then rewatched them like five or six years ago. I was just obsessed.” Benward says, “I want to be in [the new movies]. I want to be in Star Wars. That would be amazing.”
