Chad Michael Murray Returning to 'One Tree Hill'

Chad Michael MurrayAt last, the balance in Tree Hill is restored. As The CW's 'One Tree Hill' enters its ninth and final season, the network announced today that one of its original stars will return.

Chad Michael Murray, who played lead Lucas Scott from seasons 1 to 6 of the long-running drama (which originated on The WB in 2003), is heading back to his North Carolina roots for an unspecified number of episodes during 'OTH''s final season.

According to The CW, Murray's Lucas will return to Tree Hill when Haley reaches out to him for help.

No word on whether Hilarie Burton, who played Murray's on-screen wife and baby mama Peyton, will also reprise her role, but TVLine is reporting that it's a no-go. Apparently, after production tried (and failed) to bring her back last season (which was expected to be the show's last), she wasn't invited back this time.

There's still hope, though -- 'One Tree Hill' doesn't return to the TV schedule until midseason.

Also paying Tree Hill a visit this season -- a hit man. Because all Eastern European assassins wind up in small coastal North Carolina towns.

After you finish your squealing, tell us: Are you excited for Chad Michael Murray to return to 'One Tree Hill'? Will you be upset if Hilarie Burton doesn't come back?

OMG OF COURSE IM EXCITED FOR HIM TO BE BACK, I mean who isn't? But yes it is sort of sad how Halrie hasn't been yet invited back or how she might not be coming back at all. The final season Gould have them all there together at the river court and telling each other how everything changed yet tree hill always brings the
back together. It will still a great season, i guess it'll just be sort of disappointing..

I think it will be awesome with CMM returning. It doesn't matter to me if Hillarie Burton doesn't come back. I didn't really care too much for her character. She was always so whiney. But, the story between the two brothers is what started it all. I'd like to see them come full circle and even see how things conclude with their father.
