‘Pretty Little Liars’ season 3 spoilers: Look who’s returning for winter premiere!

Ashley Benson“Pretty Little Liars” is inching ever closer to its return to ABC Family on Monday, January 7, and we have something exciting to go along with: proof that a familiar face from the show’s past is returning!

Specifically, we are talking here about none other than Hanna’s grandma Regina, who has not made much of a presence on the show in the past year. (As a matter of fact, this is her first season 3 appearance.) So what is the woman doing back around Hanna now? The photos do not really paint much of a picture at all, though we have a feeling that her presence will in part create some sort of balance in the life of Ashley Benson’s character. (After all, she needs it.)

We know already that this winter premiere is going to be a dramatic one, as the primary highlight is going to be the grand return of Mona back to Rosewood after her stay in Radley. Just in case you have not seen the full synopsis yet for “She’s Better Now,” you can check it out below:

“Radley Sanitarium has given Mona a clean bill of health and she is headed back to the halls of Rosewood High, much to the Liars dismay. With their former tormentor now back in their everyday life, Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer take very different views of the “new” Mona. Sure she made their lives a living hell, but is she really cured? And what other secrets could she be holding onto? It is up to Mona to prove to the Liars if she has changed or not.”

Are you glad to see Regina back, especially when it comes to giving Hanna’s life a little more dimension? If you want to read some early scoop on the season 3 finale, you can do so over at the link here.
