'Ravenswood' spoilers - from Tyler Blackburn, cast (Video)
"Pretty Little Liars" fans get a double treat on Oct. 22. That's when the show's annual Halloween special airs and the "Pretty Little Liars" spinoff, "Ravenswood," premieres.
"I think we are going to blow up Twitter on that day," "Pretty Little Liars" writer and executive producer and "Ravenswood" co-creator, I. Marlene King, told Rachel Smith, host of the "On The Red Carpet" TV show and OTRC.com, about the premiere of the show and the "Pretty Little Liars" fans' anticipation of "Ravenswood."
Smith also talked to the cast of "Ravenswood," including Tyler Blackburn, Nicole Anderson, Britne Oldford, Merritt Patterson, Brett Dier and Steven Cabral, about what's in store for their scary new show.
Check out five spoilers about "Ravenswood" below and watch the extended interviews with the "Ravenswood" cast above.

1. Viewers will see a lot more of Caleb (Blackburn) and learn about his past.
"The fans will be happy to know that they see a lot more of Caleb," Cabral said. Cabral plays Raymond Collins, the long lost uncle of Miranda Collins (played by Anderson) on the show. "He's the star of the show. So, they'll see a lot more of him and also go back into his history on his father's side, I believe."
Blackburn explained, "The town itself has the curse on it, but not every person in the town -- not every person is affected by it, but the five of us are and it has to do with our ancestry. So, there's a lot to uncover and it happens pretty quickly, you know, in the first few episodes. A lot goes down in the first few episodes."
2. Hanna and Caleb's relationship is not "immediately severed."
Since Caleb is at the center of the action on "Ravenswood," that means he has to leave Rosewood and Hanna (played by Ashley Benson) behind. But King explained that it may not be the end of Caleb and Hanna.
"It's definitely not immediately severed," King said of the teen couple's relationship. "Caleb and Hanna have a very special relationship and as we are making these episodes of 'Ravenswood' and still writing the first season, we are discovering ourselves, as creators, what that relationship is going to morph into."
3. Miranda is a kindred soul to Caleb.
King teased, "The characters of Caleb and Miranda, they meet in the Halloween episode of 'Pretty Little Liars,' but they do discover they have a connection that is just really magical and at the same time mysterious."
"As they get to know each other and we get to know them as characters, we will find out what draws them together and what draws them to Ravenswood," she added.
4. Caleb and Miranda's relationship might not be romantic.
Anderson is a self-admitted "Haleb" fan and told Smith that Hanna and Miranda actually bond a little during the "Pretty Little Liars" Halloween special.
"I think Hanna sort of reaches out and she gives Caleb permission to stay in town and look after me," Anderson explained.
The actress also said Miranda and Caleb's relationship "isn't necessarily about, you know, attraction, or teenage romance or anything like that. There's a much bigger scheme going on that's a lot bigger than them that keeps them together and so hopefully fans will appreciate their bond in a different way than Caleb and Hanna's."
5. "Ravenswood" is darker and creepier than "Pretty Little Liars.
Fans of "Pretty Little Liars" know that the girls' trips to Ravenswood were odd and the town had an eerie vibe, but it seems like the show's writers have taken the scary elements up to new heights.
Several of the show's stars described the series as "creepy" with "supernatural" elements. The cast shot their first scene together at a graveyard and Dier, who plays Luke Matheson, claimed he even saw a ghost while filming the show in New Orleans.
Blackburn teased, "I think they've even had to tweak some of the scenes because it was a little too intense."
"We will find out that Ravenswood as a town has secrets and as a town has mystery and intrigue and people are drawn to Ravenswood," King said about the town. "Our character, Caleb, is drawn to Ravenswood and I think that's going to draw viewers to Ravenswood too. It's such a unique place and it's a town that sucks you in and once you're sucked in, you have a very difficult time leaving."
