It's been five years since Josh Duhamel graced the silver screen in a 'Transformers' film, but it sounds like he's ready to make his return.

Mark Wahlberg, who will return for the franchise's fifth film, tweeted out the news of Duhamel's return to 'Transformers' earlier today, according to InForum:

The official 'Transformers' Twitter account and director Michael Bay also confirmed the news:

Duhamel starred as Major Lennox in the franchise's first three films, 2007's 'Transformers,' 2009's 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,' and 2011's 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon.'

According to his IMDb page, Duhamel will also star in the upcoming films 'This Is Your Death' and 'Spaceman,' which are both expected to be released this year.

'Transformers: The Last Knight' is expected to hit theaters in 2017.
