'Pretty Little Liars' Spinoff Series Announced

ABC Family is expanding the world of Pretty Little Liars with a spinoff, Ravenswood.

Ravenswood, from Pretty Little Liars executive producer Marlene King, will premiere in October. Additionally, ABC Family has greenlighted a fifth season of Pretty Little Liars just days after production on the fourth season began.

Ravenswood centers on a town not far from Rosewood, Penn., which has suffered under a deadly curse for generations. Five strangers find themselves connected by this fatal curse and need to dig into the town's mysterious and terrible history before it's too late for each of them. The series will follow this year's Pretty Little Liars Halloween episode.

King, Oliver Goldstick, Joseph Dougherty and Leslie Morgenstein are executive producing Ravenswood.

The news comes after the Pretty Little Liars season three finale,
