chelsea kane top 3 'One Tree Hill' Season 9: Chelsea Kane vs. Brooke and Haley“Dancing With the Stars” alum Chelsea Kane is crashing the party in Tree Hill! Kane, who we loved back when she was Chelsea Staub and hanging out with the Jonas Brothers on the Disney Channel, has booked an episode of the final season of “One Tree Hill,” EW reports.

Though Kane is the real-life love of “One Tree Hill” star Stephen Colletti, her story in the episode mostly intersects with Brooke (Sophia Bush) and Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti). Brooke and Haley reopened Karen’s Cafe in the Season 8 finale. Kane’s character, Tara, plays the owner of a rival restaurant.

Still no word on the return date for the veteran series, but as promised at the CW Upfronts, producers are welcoming back plenty of familiar faces in addition to new talent like Kane. Chris Keller (Tyler Hilton) and Dan Scott (Paul Johansson) are both on the books to return. Our fingers remain firmly crossed for other old favorites, like Chad Michael Murray, Hilarie Burton, and Bryan Greenberg.
