"I'm back b--ches!"
No, that isn't Uber-A talking, it's Brant Daugherty, aka Noel Kahn, who is set to return to Pretty Little Liars when the Freeform hit's seventh season kicks off on Tuesday, June 21.
Daugherty took to Twitter to celebrate the good news with fans after a photo posted by showrunner Marlene King revealed the actor at a table-read. "There's a storm coming," Daugherty warned on Twitter of his character's return to Rosewood. "Prepare yourselves.
But will he return as friend or foe to the Liars?
Variety, who first reported the details of Daugherty's return, quoted a source as saying, "We still don't know whether or not he's good or bad, trustworthy or not."
Fans have yet to see Noel since the show staged its big five-year time-jump in season six, so Noel was last seen in season five, where it was revealed he was working with Alison (Sasha Pieterse) and knew she was alive the whole time the girls believed she was dead. (Oh, and in season six, we learned who he took to the senior prom: Bridget Wu.) During his time on the show, Noel wooed Aria (Lucy Hale), Mona (Janel Parrish) and Jenna (Tammin Sursok), so we're curious to see if he's kept in touch (or still has feelings) for any of Rosewood's ladies.
Daugherty, who also competed on Dancing With the Stars a few seasons back, will next be seen in Fifty Shades Freed, the third film in the hit Fifty Shades of Grey franchise.
Pretty Little Liars returns for its seventh season on Tuesday, June 21 on Freeform.
