I have yet another season 9 update for all you One Tree Hill fans!
First off, it is still unclear on whether or not OTH will be returning for a season 9. The CW Upfronts are a few weeks away and it is very very unlikely that we find out if there's going to be a season 9 before then. So keep you fingers crossed and check out one of my older posts to find out what you can do to help get a season 9! Also check this post to read about what Mark Schwahn has to say about season 9. At the moment, rumors are that OTH has been unofficially picked up for 13 episodes, but again nothing has been confirmed and nothing will be until the CW Upfronts.
Now onto some good news. If OTH does in fact get a season 9:
Cast members that already signed on for another season:
- Sophia Bush (Brooke),
- Austin Nichols (Julian),
- Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley),
- Rob Buckley (Clay),
- Lisa Goldstien (Millie),
- Jana Kramer (Alex),
- Shantal VanSanten (Quinn).
Not confirmed yet:
- It is very likely that James Lafferty (Nathan) plans to come back part-time, so we might have to see less of Nathan if there is a season 9.
- Jackson Brundage's (Jamie) contract heavily relies on Lafferty and Galeotti and since they're both coming back, it's safe to assume that Jamie will be back too.
- Stephen Colletti (Chase),
- Lee Norris (Mouth),
- Antwon Tanner (Skills).
Now for some more news regarding Chad Murray and Hilary Burton, Murray teased fans on Twitter:
“Return to OTH? I don’t know. Maybe next season for u guys," he wrote. "I Love that Lucas is missed. Give [series creator] Mark Schwann the credit. He built him.”
And as for Burton, she says
"I'm never ever gonna say never. I love that crew so much, I miss them and Wilmington."
So there's a good chance you'll be seeing them in what will probably be the FINAL season of OTH if it does in fact get renewed.
