An avid watcher of One Tree Hill’s melodrama for years, The CW series sort of lost me when producers decided to skip the show ahead a whopping four years, and then again when Chad Michael Murray left the show. Now in its ninth and final season, One Tree Hill is preparing to air, and they have brought back Murray for a special storyline.

Spoilers ahead!

Although Murray is only back for one episode, the One Tree Hill and Gilmore Girls alum plans to make it count. Murray, who plays a writer named Lucas on the show, will show up to help longtime friend and confidante Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) find Lucas’ half-brother, Nathan (James Lafferty) who has been kidnapped.

Murray’s triumphant return to The CW happens at 8 p.m. tonight, but if you want a hint of what Lucas is going to get into this evening, you can check out a clip from the upcoming episode, courtesy of TV Line, which shows Lucas meeting up with Haley and her little family for the first time since leaving Tree Hill with Peyton at the end of Season 6.



One Tree Hill airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
