After being on the fence for months, Chad Michael Murray has decided for the sake of the fans he will reprise his role as the long lost Lucas Scott in One Tree Hill’s final run on the CW Network.

Tweeting the surprising news, the thirty year old star, who left OTH back in 2009, revealed to fans Monday via Twitter:

“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 last time viewers caught a glimpse of Murray was at the end of season 6 when he departed the series alongside his on-screen wife Hilarie Burton, who played the character Peyton Sawyer, and his daughter.

Chad Michael Murray’s return will only be for one episode of the short season, that is scheduled to debut in the spring of 2012, but that should be enough for followers who didn’t foresee Michael Murray making a return at all. His alter ego Lucas Scott will reportedly be back in town after receiving a phone call from his best friend, and sister in law, Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti), who is in need of his help. Could it have something to do with the return of Karen’s Cafe? Or could it be the disappearance of Nathan? A possibility according to E! Online.

The news outlet could be on to something since Lafferty is only expected to be a part time cast member in One Tree Hill’s final season. When it comes to OTH’s season 9 fans can expect to see series regulars Paul Johansson, Tyler Hilton, Bethany Joy Galeotti and Sophia Bush all return for the final run. Does this mean Hilarie Burton will now reconsider?
