Chace Crawford is getting Casual.
The Gossip Girl alum has joined the Hulu dramedy for its upcoming third season. Crawford will recur as Byron, a self-confident student in Valerie’s (Michaela Watkins) elective storytelling class, who quickly emerges as the leader of the group.
Crawford is most known for his six-season run as Nate Archibald on Gossip Girl. He returned to the small screen in 2015 with a starring role on ABC’s short-lived drama Blood & Oil.
In season 3, Casual will have a new dynamic, with Valerie and Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) having moved out of Alex’s (Tommy Dewey) house, leading the quirky family to explore new jobs, interests, and relationships.
The show returns to Hulu on May 23.
