Catching Up With the 'Pretty Little Liars' Cast: What Are They Doing Now?
Troian Bellisario (Spencer Hastings)
Towards the end of her run as the studious Spencer, Bellisario did double duty as the director of an episode in the final season. Since then, she’s continued directing—most recently with an episode of Famous in Love
. Her acting career is strong, as well: She’s set to star in the 2018 films Where’d You Go Bernadette

Ashley Benson (Hannah Marin)
Benson has kept a low profile in the entertainment world since her days on PLL ended. Does this mean we could see her returning for the PLL spinoff? Any Hannah fan would be happy to have her sassy attitude back on their screens.
Sasha Pieterse (Alison DiLaurentis)
After seven years as the dead, then not-dead, queen bee Alison, Pieterse tried out the world of reality TV with an unfortunately short stint on Dancing with the Stars
Season 25. In addition to her upcoming drama movie The Honor List

and thriller Hell Is Where The Home Is
Ian Harding (Ezra Fitz)
With his days as heartthrob teacher Ezra Fitz behind him, Harding will be moving to the big screen as Nicholas Frohm in the upcoming comedy thriller Office Uprising
Tyler Blackburn (Caleb Rivers)
Formally Rosewood’s “bad boy” Caleb, Blackburn has also moved on to the big screen, appearing in the 2017 movie musical Hello Again
. He looks to be continuing in films, starring in the 2018 drama Asbury Park
Keegan Allen (Toby Cavanaugh)
Since wrapping his role as boy next door Toby, Allen has appeared in two episodes in TNT’s Major Crimes. He’ll next be seen in the biographical film Bukowski
, directed by James Franco, and he’s started a podcast about his life, Foreverland
. In April 2018, he’s releasing another photography book, something he considers to be his passion in life.
It’s been almost a year since Hannah, Aria, Spencer, Emily, and Alison concluded their seven-season battle with A.
After the besties emerged victorious, Pretty Little Liars closed the book on 160 episodes of mystery, drama, and romance. Now, one year later, the cast of the Freeform hit has moved out of Rosewood and on to new opportunities.
They'll be joining Janel Parrish and Sasha Pieterse.
