Keep reading to find out what we know so far about Lucas’ return to Tree Hill.

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.

Murray unfortunately won’t be accompanied by his onscreen wife Burton (Peyton) since according to some sources, she wasn’t invited back.

Murray tweeted when the news was announced,

“The secrets out ;) Im excited 2 say that “Luke” will b reuniting with the amazing OTH cast, Producers & Crew 4 an ep! This is 4 u great fans.”

The CW also send us an email confirming the scoop:

August 29, 2011 (Burbank, California) ? Chad Michael Murray (@ChadMMurray) will make a guest appearance in his original role as Lucas Scott during the final season of ONE TREE HILL, which will return mid-season on The CW.

Murray’s character was last seen driving off into the sunset with his wife Peyton (Hilarie Burton) and their new baby Sawyer. Lucas returns to Tree Hill after Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) reaches out to him for help.

ONE TREE HILL was created by Mark Schwahn and is executive produced by Schwahn, Joe Davola, Greg Prange, Mike Tollin and Brian Robbins. The series is produced by Mastermind Laboratories and Tollin/Robbins Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

    It’s stupid that they haven’t invited peyton back, they should try and finish the season off with the original cast hope by some miracle she is able to come back, even if for just one episode.

  • Jessica Valure

    I’m excited, I only watched the show for Lucas anyways and of course Peyton sucks she’s not coming back I just hope their marriage is not over cause that would suck. I love Chad Michael Murray and will watch the episode when he comes back yay

  • Kylietremmel

  • Herheys31491

    Please please please bring Peyton back! The show hasent been the same without her. We also never really got to see Lucas and Peyton as a family with sawyer.

    Have your viewers happy for one last season invite Peyton back! Even if it’s just for one episode. The way they left was so sudden an upsetting. I love the cast now although Quinn and Clay get annoying sometimes. Hilarie Burton needs to come back. I love her. She was always my favorite. <3 Bring Peyton back & Sawyer if possible! Can't bring Lucas without Peyton. & you know it. && how could anyone dislike Peyton. -_-

  • Www Iiwastoyoung

    Why is Lucas coming back but not Peyton, I mean they already didn’t have her come back for Brooke’s wedding and now Lucas is coming back without her, don’t get me wrong I love Lucas but he is nothing without Peyton.
    PS. To all the girls that say that they are happy Peyton is not coming back, you must not love the show because Peyton was a big part of the show. You can’t really be hating on a fictional character come on if the writers put Leyton together you can’t hate on Peyton

  • carol

    Peyton HAS to come back with Lucas!!!!!!   :(
