Brant Daugherty, who has become a frontrunner on “Dancing with the Stars,” will soon be returning to “Pretty Little Liars.”

The hunky star who plays the recurring character of Noel Kahn on the ABC Family drama revealed to reporters after Monday night’s “DWTS” that we’d see him on “PLL” again soon.

“I’m coming back to ‘Pretty Little Liars’,” Brant said. “I start filming next week.”

The actor said he found out the good news about Noel’s comeback from the show’s producer at a recent Halloween-themed media event.

“Marlene King told me right after we’d finished the red carpet. She gave me a big hug and said, ‘I’m so happy you’re coming back. We can’t wait to have you,’” Brant smiled.

But it means Brant will have to do double duty as he continues to excel on “DWTS.” On Monday night, he and partner Peta Murgatroyd earned an impressive score of 28 out of 30 for their tango.

“We’ll have to bring Peta to set,” he said.

Brant pointed out his DWTS co-star, Amber Riley of “Glee,” has dealt with the same issue lately. “They did it with Amber and ‘Glee.’ I think [producers] can make it work.”

Brant, whose “Pretty Little Liars” character has dated the key characters of Aria, Mona, and Jenna on the hit ABC Family show, told xfinityTV he couldn’t offer a storyline teaser.

“I don’t know anything. I haven’t read the script yet. I think they just sent it to me tonight while we were onstage [at DWTS].”

But fans can look forward to PLL’s typical ambiguity. Brant told reporters he sees Noel as “a little bit of both” a good guy and bad guy on the show.
