Get ready to enter Ravenswood.

ABC Family announced today the launch of a Pretty Little Liars spin-off titled Ravenswood, set to launch in October. Moreover, the network announced it has picked up PLL for a fifth season.

In a nod to the passionate online fanbase that made PLL a success, something that was the subject of an EW cover story just weeks ago, the announcement was first made via the show’s official social media channels.

According to a release, Ravenswood will “center on a town, not far from Rosewood, PA (the home base of Pretty Little Liars), which has suffered under a deadly curse for generations. Five strangers suddenly 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 new series will premiere on following the annual Pretty Little Liars Halloween episode, and comes from PLL executive producer team I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick, Joseph Dougherty and Leslie Morgenstein.

Season 4 of Pretty Little Liars premieres June 11.
