Earlier today, I announced that Deb Scott (Barbara Alyn Woods) will be returning to Tree Hill. For some more amazing news, Chad Michael Murray who plays Lucas will be paying One Tree Hill a visit.

Last we saw Lucas, he was driving off into the sunset with his wife Peyton (Hilarie Burton) and their new born Sawyer. Lucas will return to Tree Hill after Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) reaches out to him for help.
