Pretty Little Liars Exclusive: Meet Alison's Mom!

Prepare to be rocked, Rosewood.

ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars has cast Less Than Perfect alumna Andrea Parker as dearly (?) departed Alison’s mother, who happens to be nothing like her scheming daughter — at first!

Parker makes her PLL debut in the sixth episode of the cable sudser’s second season (premiering Tuesday, June 14) as Jessica DiLaurentis, Ali’s seemingly sweet mom who returns to Rosewood to oversee a charity fashion show being held in her daughter’s honor. With all four Liars assisting with the festivities,  the MIA momma is initially overjoyed to reconnect with Ali’s longtime friends. (Obviously she hasn’t heard that they are now kinda sorta suspects in her murder.)

Of course, nothing — and no one — is as it seems in this treacherous little town, so expect Jessica’s motives to come into question very quickly.

No word yet on just how many episodes of PLL Parker will take part in, but she was cast as a recurring player, so look forward to seeing a healthy dose of the mystery matriarch this summer.

          • How am I ruining it? By voicing my opinion. I watch it because I know it’ll be the only adaptation of the books there will be, but I’m allowed to say the show sucks.

  • I disagree 100%
    I read the books and i’m an avid follower of the show.
    The books and the show do have differences but that’s because the show isnt directed by Sara Sheppard.
    Different artists have different interpretations.
    You just have to keep an open mind.

    • Well, the books are different from the show. The admitted that they are different from the show.

  • This is just a little error I found in this article. Isn’t June 14th going to be the start of the THIRD season?!?!? The 1st and 2nd seasons already came and went right? I watched them too.

    • No its the 2nd season. ABC Family airs the seasons in 2 parts: summer & winter.

    • No, the episodes so far have only been the first season (: Season 2 begins June 14th (Tuesdays @ 8)

    • no it’s the 2nd season. season 1 was just in two parts. because of the success of the first ten episodes, ABC Family ordered 12 more episodes to be added to season one. :)

    • It is the third season I don’t understand why a lot of people are saying it’s the second I’m guessing a lot of people didnt watch the first season that’s why they think it’s the second season but everyone it is the third season duh

      • No, it’s the second season. The first season was in two parts. So it’s the second season, “duh”. Please, don’t act like an expert when you have no clue what you are talking about.

  • I thought they had her mom with blonde hair in the first episode at her funeral? They are changing her and they changed spencer’s original parents and the original Ian from the first episode too.

  • If you have not read the books then listen up. Allison killed Allison. She has a twin named courtney and she tool over allisons life and Allison killed her. Also allisons is going to come back but she pretends to be courtesy and she tries to kill the PLL. Your welcome.

    • ABCFamily has announced about SIX BILLION TIMES that A and Allison’s killer are not the same as they are in the books. Nice try, though.
