WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- As "One Tree Hill" approaches the end of its run, an original cast member prepares to return to the Wilmington-shot drama.
The CW announced Chad Michael Murray will make a guest appearance in his original role as Lucas Scott during the show's final season, which will return mid-season. Murray's character Lucas Scott 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.
Since then, the remaining cast has rarely referred to Lucas and Peyton, and what happened to them has never been made clear to viewers.
