'Veronica Mars', 'American Horror Story: Coven' set for PaleyFest 2014

PaleyFest 2014 will be full of marshmallows this year.

No, not literally. But the annual TV conference will kick off its March 13-28 schedule with a panel reuniting the cast of Veronica Mars. The cast, including titular Kristen Bell, will surely have lots to tease: The Kickstarter-funded movie continuation of the tale will be released the following day. Other panels announced so far at the annual festival include American Horror Story: Coven and Pretty Little Liars. The full lineup will be announced Jan. 8.

But a reunion panel isn’t the only good news for Veronica Mars fans today. Pivot announced that it will begin airing reruns of the show, as well as repeats of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, in a new block featuring back-to-back episodes Mondays through Fridays at 10 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET beginning Jan. 13, 2014.

Executive producer previews 'Ravenswood': New characters, Caleb's family, and 'an adversary of some dark underworld'

The “A” team might wear black hoodies and send threatening notes, but the town of Ravenswood has darkness running through its veins.

Tomorrow, Pretty Little Liars spin-off Ravenswood debuts when PLL‘s Caleb finds himself in a new town where a curse connects him to four other individuals. But what’s the curse, and why were these five teens chosen? That’s what will be explored in the new series from the team that brought you Rosewood, “A,” and countless shocking revelations.

We talked with Ravenswood executive producer and co-creator Oliver Goldstick about what we can expect from the new series (hints: mystery, friendship, and Mrs. Grunwald):

'Ravenswood' First Look: Caleb goes for a walk in the cemetery

Just because Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) will soon be spending more time in Ravenswood than Rosewood doesn’t mean he’s given up his favorite hobbies — like hanging out in cemeteries!

Joining him on his stroll in the exclusive photo above (first seen in EW’s annual Fall TV preview issue) is Nicole Gale Anderson, who plays Miranda on the show, which is about a group of teens who discover they’re involved with an evil curse (aka: typical teen stuff). But for Blackburn, Caleb’s journey in the Pretty Little Liars spin-off, announced back in March, is about growing up more than anything. “Yes, he’s been helping the PLLs for a couple of years…but now this is very personal,” he says. “The stakes become a lot higher for him, and I really foresee him turning into a man now and having to really fend for himself and protect other people, too.”

As previously teased, with a curse looming over the town, Ravenswood will have a little more of a supernatural touch to it than Pretty Little Liars, and Blackburn couldn’t be happier. “I love supernatural stuff and this is like my favorite kind because it’s not horror or vampires or werewolves,” he says. “It’s definitely more spiritual and there’s a spiritual, eerie quality to it.”

Ravenswood premieres Oct. 22 on ABC Family. With a little more than a month to go, do you have any burning questions about the show or new characters?

'Vampire Diaries' music supervisor: How 'The O.C.' started a trend that could save indie music

If you want to hear about the latest Katy Perry song or find out when Miley Cyrus’ sure-to-offend new album comes out, all you have to do is open the page of any magazine, check out the homepage of any (and every) blog, or just head on over to your favorite form of social media and see what’s buzzing. But how do you discover smaller indie bands anymore? If they’re not creating chaos at an awards show or topping the Billboard charts, it’s not always as obvious as music fans would like it to be. Enter Chris Mollere, music supervisor for hit shows The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars.

Mollere recently spoke to Rolling Stone about how he sees his job as an opportunity to feature great bands, both known and unknown, on a possibly unexpected (but rather large) platform — television — a trend that he credits to the 2003 hit show The O.C.

The O.C. was where music really jumped out at me on TV,” Mollere said. “Easy Rider was one of the first movies to have a song soundtrack, but The O.C. was the show that changed that format on television and showed that you could do things like have a song with lyrics play during a scene with dialogue. Before The O.C., that was not an accepted thing. The O.C. also broke bands like Death Cab and the Killers. A placement on that show took bands to another level.”

'True Blood,' 'Teen Wolf,' 'Castle,' 'Graceland': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Happy Friday. It’s scoop time.

And over the weekend, perhaps in between watching those old episodes of the Sopranos that I know you downloaded in grief (as I did!), don’t forget to send in your scoop requests to spoilerroom@ew.com.

‘TRUE BLOOD: ‘PAM’S LOSING EVERYTHING SHE VALUES

True Blood premiered its sixth season last weekend on HBO, and while the reaction was somewhat mixed, I was glad to see one consistent feeling across the board: Gov. Burrell is one big slimy toad.

As you know, Burrell is the one leading this anti-vampire campaign, but quite soon, even more about his charge against the vamps will come to light — and some of it is a little disturbing. (One word: Experiments) “That is quite something,” Kristin Bauer van Straten says of the upcoming revelations about just how far Burrell’s gone to start developing defenses against the vamps. “It’s just all part of the theme that the tables have turned and the vampires are being hunted….[The humans] are figuring out how to fight back.” READ FULL STORY

Spoiler Room is back from summer vacation!!

For details on how I spent my weeks off, watch Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Summer Vacation. Actually, that has nothing to do with what I did, but I wish it did. (Also, I really love that movie.) The real answer to how I spent my time off is nothing you’d be particularly interested in.

Anyway, I’m back and have returned with a delicious heap of scoop. Enjoy! And don’t forget to send your questions for next week, people! spoilerroom@EW.com

'Pretty Little Liars' season 4 premiere generates nearly 3 million viewers (and lots of tweets!)

Pretty Little Liars scored itself some not-so-little ratings last night.

The show’s season 4 premiere was the show’s best summer debut ever, with 2.97 million viewers. (Read our recap of the episode here.) That number is up slightly from the 2.93 who tuned in for last season’s opener.

The episode also grew 31 percent in the 18-34 demo from the previous year and ranked as cable’s No. 1 scripted drama of the night.

The cherry on top of those solid numbers? The episode was the “most tweeted” season premiere for any TV show, generating nearly 1.3 million tweets, according to the network. (Yes, it beat The Walking Dead.) Such accomplishments, while noteworthy, stand to mean a little more to advertisers later this year when Nielsen and Twitter launch their previously announced “Nielsen Twitter TV Rating,” which will essentially enhance the social TV analytics already available today and have the Nielsen-approved stamp.

Liars‘ social media domination is anything but new, however. In fact, the show’s complete domination of social media was just months ago the subject of an EW cover story.

'Pretty Little Liars' season four preview: Keegan Allen on Toby's 'losing it' and the flashback that 'explains the whole show'

When Pretty Little Liars’ fourth season kicks off Tuesday, June 11, we will find the Liars right where we left them — looking shocked at whatever they’ve discovered in Wilden’s trunk. Along with that, the season premiere will also feature the reveal of the Queen of Hearts’ identity. And from there, the rest of the season is shaping up to be full of twists, turns, and threatening text messages. But one thing we can promise for season 4 is a deeper look into Toby’s past. After disappearing for much of the second half of last season, Toby is back and, according to Keegan Allen, it’s his turn to get answers and spiral downward. See what else Allen had to say about season 4: READ FULL STORY

Rumer Willis to guest star on season four of 'Pretty Little Liars'

Just in case the intrigue of red coat’s true identity or the mystery of what’s in the trunk isn’t enough, there’s a new reason why you might want to catch season four of ABC Family’s hit show Pretty Little Liars.

Rumer Willis is coming to Rosewood! Whether or not she will stay in town is another question, but ABC Family has confirmed that Willis is (as we speak) filming a guest spot for one episode, with the possibility for additional episodes. Willis will appear as Zoe, an organizer for a charity. We’re not quite sure what Zoe’s charity is up to, but let’s hope it raises money for troubled teens with cyber-bullying problems.

Regardless, Willis’ episode is slated to air in late July.

It’s been a busy day in Ravenswood.

First up in today’s news downpour: The Pretty Little Liars spin-off has found its Miranda in Beauty and the Beast recurring player Nicole Gale Anderson, who plays the younger sister of Kristin Kreuk’s Catherine on that show. Miranda is described in a casting breakdown as a “fiercely independent foster kid” who “uses her wits to cover her emotional scars.” Anderson, who also appeared on ABC Family’s Make It or Break It, is set to be a regular on the buzzy project, which will also star Tyler Blackburn.
