The actor will return to the Transformers universe in the franchise's fifth installment, Transformers: The Last Knight, where he will reprise his role as Lieutenant Colonel Lennox. 

Duhamel appeared in the first three Transformers movies but was absent from the Mark Wahlberg-starring fourth film, 2014's Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Wahlberg and director Michael Bay have already taken to Twitter, welcoming Duhamel back into the fray.

The eternal battle between the vehicularly inclined alien robots will wage on in The Last Knight, which is set to hit theaters in 2017.
