Thomas Dekker admits it took a lot for him to return to TV, but what better reason than to play a warlock?

"I haven't done TV in a couple years now," he tells TVGuide.com. "It's a grind, it's a lot of hard work, but it's really rewarding and the show [Secret Circle] is great -- and I get to be a male witch."

The complete pilot report: Kiefer Sutherland, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Wonder Woman and more!
