Lucy Hale is ready to be reunited with her Pretty Little Liars castmates! ET's Katie Krause spoke to the 30-year-old actress about her upcoming virtual reunion with Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario, Tyler Blackburn, Ian Harding, Shay Mitchell, Janel Parrish and Sasha Pieterse, the proceeds of which will go toward Feeding America.
"All of us are gonna be there I believe... We won't physically be in the same place, but since we wrapped, I haven't seen a lot of their faces," Hale says. "A lot has happened, and there's babies, and marriages, and I just can't wait to catch up. And do it all along with everyone watching. [It's] such an amazing cause. I'm looking forward to it."
Hale revealed that it was "a no-brainer" for her and the rest of the cast to sign on for the reunion, largely because, due to the current quarantine, "none of us are doing anything right now, so we have no excuse not to."
"It'll just be good to connect with people. I just want to have conversations. And not only with people that I haven't seen in two years, but [with] all the fans that are calling in," she says. "I think it's just gonna be a lot of positive energy and a lot of love. And hopefully we can just distract each other for... a couple hours. So hopefully we can just have a good time and kind of just forget about everything for a second and check in with everybody."
While fans should certainly be excited to see the PLL cast back together again, many are still hoping for them to return to their characters in a movie or show, something that Hale thinks is "possible."
"We're in a quarantine that we thought would last a couple weeks. Anything is possible at this point," she says. "I don't rule anything out, [but] I feel like we'd need a little more time to pass. I feel like we would get more out of it if we were, like, 10 years down the road."
"I feel like they're gonna do a spinoff or something before then. I don't know. I'm so protective of this show," Hale continues. "So I feel like when the time comes that they want to do it with a whole new cast, I might have to produce it because I'm way too protective of it."
Whether or not the cast signs on for a new show or movie, Hale has certainly thought about what her character, Aria, would be up to with her longtime love, Ezra (Harding).
