Chad Michael Murray: Returning to One Tree Hill!

by at . Comments

One Tree Hill has taken up Chad Michael Murray on his offer.

A few weeks after the show's original star said he'd be open to an appearance on the final season of this CW hit, the network has made the wishes of Murray and millions of fans come true: he'll reprise the role of Lucas Scott on at least one episode in 2012.

No other details have been announced, except the revelation that Lucas' return will coincide with Haley reaching out to him, but there's plenty of time for spoilers to leak out. One Tree Hill doesn't return until January.

Lucas was last seen driving off into the sunset with his Peyton - played by Hilarie Burton, who will NOT return - and their new baby, Sawyer.

ok this is kindof exciting, you can't have the last season without the lead actor. i just hope they don't have lucas leaving peyton and sawyer because that would suck!!! c'mon! can't wait for this season now!!!


Hilarie Burton is currently signed on with White Collar and hence might likely not be committed to now appear on another Network such as the CW. But an analogy is like Michael Rosenbaum's non-spoken word to never appear on Smallville which he eventually did in the final. And thanks to the support and death threats from fans, they managed to get him back. The Power of Pestering... we are all children.


So happy with this new!! Now we just need Hilarie Burton to come back.


@moviefreak is right if peyton won't come back it is pointless for lucas to return and for what- one episode? if they both won't appear and make things right again like they used to be then the OTH I loved ended with them going away- there is hope if they come back but now when you say hilarie won't come back( is it official?) I just stopped looking forward to seeing the last season


That makes me happy! He was the heart and soul of the show! He interacted with everyone and had such a great evolution! Hope they do a proper storyline with him! He diserves it! It would be perfect if P.S. Could appear to but for start he is enough!
Can't wait to watch it! ;)


Why isn't hilarie burton returning?!
Has this been made official? She has to come back too..
Otherwise lucas can stay wherever the hell he is..
