When Pretty Little Liars wrapped up its 6A season with the revelation that CeCe Drake (Vanessa Ray) was A, many PLL fans called foul, insisting that the long-running series had pushed the idea that Wren Kingston (Julian Morris) was the big bad villain. Even now, after most of the show’s fans have accepted CeCe as A, there’s still a feeling that Wren’s story has been left unfinished and not just by Pretty Little Liars‘ fans.
Design & Trend reports that the 6B season of Pretty Little Liars will feature the return of Wren and Julian himself teases that the character will unleash a darker side of himself.
“I’ve promised Marlene [King] that I will return at some point in the season to resolve my character — for myself and also for the fans,” the Pretty Little Liars actor said. “So as long as she’s still up for that, I will come back in some capacity. It would be cool.”
Among the things left hanging when Wren suspiciously fled to England so abruptly, was the situation between Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and himself, which Morris says should be somehow dealt with in season 6B of Pretty Little Liars.
“What I would love is some resolution with Spencer,” 32-year-old Julian Morris said. “I always thought — and this is how I played it — that he was in love with and loved Spencer, so it would be great to resolve that.”
“Although, obviously, she’s now with Toby, so I don’t know how he’d feel about that,” Morris said, seemingly hinting that there might be a love triangle to explore in upcoming Pretty Little Liars episodes.
Morris also acknowledges the discontent with the way season 6A played out, according to MTV News, but he still has hopes that Wren has a big villainous part to play.
“I know there was some disappointment with the reveal at the end of that episode,” Julian said. “However, it’s not the final season. The season now is the final chapter, and I think that’s going to be the big reveal. So it could still be Wren.”
In the meantime, Pretty Little Liars fans can catch Julian Morris in the Amazon series Hand of God.
“In a way that I grew up on Pretty Little Liars, I think a lot of the fans have as well,” Morris said. “So for me, it was about looking for a challenge of a character that was morally conflicted, that was more of challenge that I’ve been given before but equally as fun. And it is ultimately a whodunnit. It’s not ‘A’ this time around — it’s something a little darker.”
Pretty Little Liars returns with season 6B in January on ABC Family.
