Mona Vanderwaal is back from the dead and she is heading straight to "Dancing with the Stars."
Janel Parrish's character was killed off on Tuesday's midseason finale of "Pretty Little Liars," but sources have confirmed to the media that she will be heading to the ballroom when season 19 of "Dancing with the Stars" returns on 15 September.
Parrish's PLL co-star Lucy Hale confirmed the rumour with a tweet congratulating the actress for being a part of season 19 of the dancing reality show, the Examiner noted. "Congrats to one of the sweetest gals in the world for her exciting news about joining dancing with the stars! @JanelParrish I [heart] you!" Hale wrote.
However, the tweet has since been deleted.
Parrish's casting news was also confirmed by a HollywoodLife source, who added that another celebrity contestant will be the Olympian track and field athlete, Lolo Jones. "They both are on this seasons show 100%," a DWTS insider told the publication. "The cast and crew is very excited!"
Casting rumours also note that "Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson will be among the contestants on season 19 of the dancing reality show. The 17-year-old's mother, Korie Robertson, told Us Weekly back in May that the teen has always wanted to be a part of the ABC show.
"I think that our kids are really natural in front of the camera and they have fun with it," Korie said when asked about her kids' future in the entertainment industry. "Sadie I think wants to maybe be on a talk show and she wants to be on Dancing with the Stars!" she added.
Meanwhile, TMZ reported that it has obtained the list of celebrities ABC is hoping to rope in for season 19, and it includes 'Bachelorette' Andi Dorfman, ex-UFC fighter Randy Couture, "American Ninja Warrior" contestant Kacy Catanzaro and "General Hospital" actor Antonio Sabato Jr.
The network is also trying to land a female YouTube star. Though the identity of the YouTuber has not been revealed, many believe it could be Bethany Mota.
The official "DWTS" casting announcement will be made on "Good Morning America" on 4 September.
