Fans' wish for Crystal Reed to return to "Teen Wolf" has been granted. The actress is said to guest star on the Feb. 23 episode called "The Maid of Gévaudan."

In a phone interview with Buzzfeed News, Crystal Reed confirmed that she is returning to the show where her character was tragedically killed off. Reed's character, Allison Argent, died heroically at the end of "Teen Wolf's" third season, which saddened a lot of avid fans. Since then, there were clamoring and fervent hoping that they will at least see the actress back on the show, even for one episode. But the wait is now over as show producer Jeff Davis heeded fans' wishes.

Reed, however, will not be back as Argent. Her character is not set to rise from the dead. Instead, she will be playing the progenitor of the Argent family line, Marie-Jeanne Valet. It comes as no surprise that the said episode will be flashback heavy. In fact, this is precisely the factor that drew Reed back.

Reed was not that willing to return to "Teen Wolf." Producer Davis, who also wrote the episode himself, only managed to convince her when the storyline was presented.

Through the interview, Reed shared she was reluctant to return to the show despite fans wanting her to because her character died in such a beautiful way. For her, to bring Allison back may just tarnish the story. However, upon learning that she was not necessarily going to play Allison again and that it was an episode set in the 1700s, she immediately pounced on the chance.

"Basically, Jeff just said, 'France in the 1700s,' and I was in," Reed recalled. "He was definitely playing into my emotions. He knows that I have been dying to do a period piece and I love getting my head around different accents and different cultures. He didn't even have much of a character worked out other than it was based on the Maid of Gévaudan. And I knew the legend, so before really knowing anything further, I said yes," she explained.

Producer Davis described Valet as a peasant girl and a female warrior at the same time. Valet was the first to survive the beast attack. He added that Reed is just perfect for the role, and he is sure that by casting her, it will give young female viewers someone to look up to.

It seems that the banshee of Beacon Hills, as portrayed by actress Holland Roden, already provided a teaser as to this significant return early last year, just before Season 5 premiered. It can be remembered that during the ATX Television Festival held in Texas on June 9-12, she told People Magazine that "as far as actors coming back, there's always so many different forms which they can come back."
