Christian Chávez is back! The Mexican actor is making his comeback to showbiz with a new telenovela and musical project up his sleeves. This is huge news to devoted fans of the actor who took a 10-year hiatus from the telenovela biz.

Chávez is returning in "Despertar Contigo," a production by Pedro Damián for Televisa.. His problematic role, according to People en Español, is a young man who does not work or study. Although he has had some roles in the small screen, this is the first time the 32-year-old actor will appear in telenovelas since his role as Giovanni Méndez López in the 2004 to 2006 hit "Rebelde."

Prior to "Rebelde," Chávez first stepped into the novela scene with his character Fernando 'Fercho' Lucena in "Clase 406." Both teen soaps were produced by Damián. "It's my family, they gave me the first opportunity with "Clase 406" and then "Rebelde." It's awesome," expressed Chávez to People en Español on working with the same production team in the forthcoming novela. 

With the new TV project in the works, Chávez also spilled the beans on what fans can expect of his character in "Despertar Contigo." "He's a kid, who doesn't work or study. He's fun, but very problematic," he said. "He's jealous of his brother and that makes him be antagonist in different situations. He's also a mama's boy," he added, stating that his character will face many obstacles in the novela, but with a hint of comedy.

In the exclusive with People en Español, the former RBD singer also talked about his music comeback. "I'm currently recording a second single off of my EP titled 'Tóxico,'" he said. "Soon we'll film the music video. It's a very heartfelt ballad," he added. The last time Chávez released an album as a solo artist was in 2010 with "Almas Transparentes."

The actor, who stated that he feels at peace and happy with his family and friends, also said that with his comeback comes a mature and conscious man who still keeps his essence.
