Tyler Hilton: Returning to One Tree Hill! (Major Update!)

at . Comments

Tyler Hilton is heading back to One Tree Hill.

The singer/songwriter/actor teased this return on Twitter this week, writing that he's "doing something soooo exciting," and now Zap2It confirms: Hilton will reprise the role of Chris Keller for at least an episode or two.

Keller has not been seen on the show since season four. That's a decade in OTH time! Look for him to get involved with Haley, giving her a hand with Red Bedroom Records with Peyton still out of the picture.

One Tree Hill will return with its final season some time in January.

UPDATE: TV Line now reports that Hilton has been made a series regular! He'll return on the final season premiere.

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.

One Tree Hill Quotes

Nathan:You're Haley James, right?
Haley: I'm sorry. I'm best friends with Lucas.
Nathan: Well, then I'm sorry too.
Haley: Forget it, I'll find you someone else.
Nathan: Look, there is no one else. All right? I'd be fine with it if there was.
Haley: If there were.
Nathan: See, you're helping me already.
Haley: Look, I can't help you. And on top of that, I won't help you. Okay?

Remember tonight, for it is the beginning of always. A promise, like a reward for persisting through life so long alone. A belief in each other and the possibility of love. A decision to ignore simply rise above the pain in the past. A covenant, which at once binds two souls and yet severs prior ties. The celebration of the chance taken and the challenge that lies ahead. For two will always be stronger than one. Like a team braced against the tempests of the world. And love will always be the guiding force in our lives. For tonight is mere formality. Only an announcement to the world of feelings long held, promises made long ago in the sacred space in our hearts.
