We previously reported that Chad Michael Murray was hoping to return to Tree Hill for the final season of One Tree Hill and the CW have announced that this will happen.
The actor, who plays Lucas Scott, left in 2009 with his wife Peyton (Hilarie Burton) and their new baby. His character will make a return after his best friend Hayley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) contacts him for help.
Production on One Tree Hill’s upcoming and well rumoured final season was shut down due to Hurricane Irene at the weekend.
Murray will be joined in the final season by Deb (Barbara Alyn Woods) however it is unclear whether Burton will return. Producers asked Burton to return last season however at the time the show’s creator Mark Schwahn said, “Quite frankly, we just couldn’t make a deal. Hilarie now has a child and a family, and she’s doing some nice work [on White Collar]“
