Lucas Scott is going to be back on our TV screens full time!

One Tree Hill alum Chad Michael Murray just joined Marvel's Agent Carter, and this isn't just a small role or cameo, either...he's going to be a series regular!

Marvel announced on Friday that Murray has been cast in the major role of Strategic Scientific Reserve Agent Jack Thompson, who meets Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) when she takes on a new role at the SSR in New York City.

Hold up, Lucas Scott...in a non-sports uniform? This just keeps getting better and better.

Murray isn't the only new face that has joined ABC's midseason show.

Marvel also announced that Dollhouse fan-favorite alum Enver Gjokaj has signed on as a series regular. Like Murray's Agent Thompson, Gjokaj will play Agent Daniel Sousa, another suit that Agent Carter meets at the SSR.

Agent Carter follows the story of Captain America character Peggy Carter after the war ends in 1946. When all the men return from fighting abroad, the once-important and high-ranking Carter finds herself marginalized. Working for the covert SSR, she must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark, all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America after losing the love of her life—Captain America himself, Steve Rogers.

The only bad part about this casting news? It makes the wait for Agent Carter's midseason premiere that much harder to bear.
