Keep that bed warm, Haley! Daddy’s comin’ home!

Here’s some news that’s sure to make baby Lydia — and longtime “Naley” fans — smile: Zap2it has confirmed that, despite his absence during most of season nine, James Lafferty will be back for One Tree Hill‘s series finale.

As HollywoodLife.com already told you, season nine will feature the return of several fan-favorites, including Chad Michael Murray as Lucas Scott, Tyler Hilton as Chris Kellar, Paul Johansson as Dan Scott, and even Barbara Alyn Woods as Deb Scott.

I realize that news of Nathan’s “return” to the Tree Hill probably sounds weird right now, considering he hasn’t technically “left” yet, but trust me — a lot about the show’s final season is going to be weird. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Tree Hill fans, which other characters would you like to see make surprise appearances on the show’s final season?
