One Tree Hill fans will no doubt recognize a heartthrob from their past when Chad Michael Murray joins the cast of Riverdale in a major recurring role as the leader of the cult “The Farm.”

Fans of the hit series have been wondering for some time about the man called “Edgar,” who runs the cult that has so completely absorbed Alice Cooper (Madchen Amick) and now has absorbed the captives from the Sisters of Quiet Mercy Convent. There is no end to the intrigue with this show.

Murray shared his excitement on Twitter on February 8, along with an E! News article about his role, telling fans to “Hang on tight coz it’s gonna be a wild ride.”

There has been no word yet as to which episode “Edgar” will finally make his appearance, but assurances are that it will be this season!

We want to hear from you: let us know in the comments how you feel about this casting choice!

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
