Chad Michael Murray Coming Back to 'One Tree Hill'
Chad Michael Murray, the teen heartthrob with the prominent middle name, is coming back to his old stomping grounds at "One Tree Hill."
According to TV Line, Murray, who played Lucas Scott on the series from 2003-2009, "will return to Tree Hill after Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) reaches out to him for help."
This is going to make for quite a reunion in the ninth and final season of the show.
Tyler Hilton (Chris Keller) and Paul Johansson (Dan Scott) are reportedly returning, and even "True Blood" stud Joe Manganiello (aka Alcide) has gotten in on the reunion fun, telling Digital Spy the he "would love" to return to the show. Manganiello played Owen, a love interest of Sophia Bush's character Brooke.
Which only leaves Hillarie Burton (Peyton), who rode off into the sunset with Chad Michael's Lukas and their baby Sawyer just two short years ago.
She'll be coming back, right?
Not so much. According to show creator Mark Schwahn, who tried but failed to make a deal to bring Burton back, “Hilarie now has a child and a family, and she’s doing some nice work [on White Collar].”
So it goes. Lord know you can't get everything you want on "One Tree Hill"....
