‘One Tree Hill’ – Will There Be A Season 9?

Update: One Tree Hill is now officially renewed for season 9 <= check the link for more info!

During an interview with Ology, Dawn Ostroff, CW president talked about the possibility One Tree Hill season 9 renewal. To find out what he has to say, the chances of getting a 9th season of One Tree Hill and how you can help, keep reading.

According to Ostroff, the network isn’t ruling out the possibility of a season 9, considering how well the ratings are holding with the way things are going creatively.

”We have a big wedding coming, and the episode is going to be fantastic. Mark Schwahn — bless that man. I don’t know how he does it. He’s as enthusiastic about the show today as he was when we formulated the CW. He loves what he’s doing and is still able creatively to keep the show in a place where the fans are really satisfied. He seems really satisfied, and we’ve been thrilled with it.”

When asked if the ninth season was going to be One Tree Hill’s last season, here’s what she said:

“Possible. I could never say no given what this has been. Every year it’s, ‘Do we think it can get picked up again? Do we think it can go?’ And every year… we pick it up. You never count Mark out. Every year he comes back, and he’s made the show better.”

But as of now, nothing has been set. The show hasn’t been cancelled and it hasn’t been renewed either ( it has decent ratings which suggests renewal). We will probably find out the fate of the show during the CW upfronts which is scheduled on May 19th.

If you want to OTH to be renewed for another season, here’s how you can help:

    One Tree Hill died a long time ago , when lucas and peyton left. Im glad that brook is finally gonna have her own baby and get the chance to be pregnant. But there is no real story line….I think they need to end the show now before they totaly destroy all the seasons…it was a good run but its time to move on.

  • Pinksparkle32

    wrong! one tree hill is the best show ever and should be renewed. I think it deserves to have AT LEAST one more season and they should say upfront that its the final season so we don’t have to suffer and we can enjoy the last season and Mark Schwan will make it amazing! I know it!

  • Deanna

    one tree hill should have another season its by far the best show i have ever found an loved! its basically my dream life i love this show please dont leave us hanging do one last final season an would be awsome if you could bring luke and peyton back some time in the final season please let there be a season 9!

  • Renea120

    I absolutely love one tree hill… everything about it… I seriously feel like I know them. I thought the show wouldn’t be any good without Lucas. I was wrong. OTH is so amazing… I really hope the show will continue onto season nine… everything Tuesday at 8 I make sure I have nothin to do but watch the best show that was ever made!!. Mark is a really talented man.. the way the show plays out, the words they use, just everything about that show…. please continue one tree hill…I’m sure I speak for a lot of people when I say it would be very disappointing if the show doesn’t go onto season nine.

  • Shanny972008

    One tree hill is the best thing that i have ver watched

  • Federhofer

    Ive been watching one tree hill for a long time now and every year it just keeps getting better so please dont take it off air

  • Chunkmoster7

    yes, there should definably be one more season. Its Brookes time to shine! And with Haley just having her baby girl. Lucus and Payton should come back and this is my one and only favorite show.

  • Ima Star

    lucas and peyton leaving gave ONE TREE HILL a breath of fresh air!!
    this show is so much more than the vintage 90210 and can EASILY surpass its running time… to the pucas fans – SHUTUP – the LOYAL VIEWERS ARENT GOING ANYWHERE!! we love it more now than we ever did before :P

  • ALLIFREE70

    i am so tired of so called ‘fans’ whinging about peyton and luke leaving! oth is awesome. there is no other show like this on tv now which is really sad. and you would never be able to count the amount of people it has helped, and continues to help. how rare is that.

  • Jodie

    oth is the best program ever, cant belive brooke is finaly gonna get her baby she has always wanted 1 i think it should keep on going. i would be over the moon if it does

  • evanescence918

    OTH is the most amazing show ever! i remember a few years back when my sister talked non stop about it and convinced me to watch, uBest dscision of my life! even though lucas and peyton left, the show is still the best an it deserves one more really great season. even tho there are nine seasons and its a lot there r still so much loyal fans and they don’t want to see the show go yet. ONE MORE SEASON PLZZZ!!!!!

  • Catygon

    Love this show and still want more! Please continue!!!

  • http://twitter.com/Melissalu20 Melissa McMahon

    Please Give us another Season of OTH, Brooke is FINALLY pregnant and we want to see all of it! One more episode can’t summarize it all. We need a last season ! Season 9 OTH !!

  • Jojo

    I really think that there should be the 9h season it’s too early to stop it now yes peyton and lucas are gone and it’s not the same without them but i still don’t think you should stop the show because of that i am really starting to get excited now !!!

  • Allstie7

    best show everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1070701042 Charliee Spragg

     i adore one tree hill and my friends are all good fans i think it is going really well and they should make a new season but try to bring lucas and payton back, and have jamie ill in hospital or something to get peple tacked again but i genrelly really enjoy it and so do all the people around me

  • Jes12182

    One Tree Hill is the best show ever I own all 7 seasons and will get season 8 when it comes out  on dvd. i think there should be a season 9… 

  • Gellie_169

     PLEASE PLEASE PLEASEEEEE make another season at least bring it to an end..i lost track & stopped watching it for a while due to school & work but i caught up online, i watched all the seasons iv missed & it only continues to get better…i can honestly say im in love with show. so dont fail us CW & do the right thing & give us a season 9! :D

  • ann

    please let there be a season 9 of one tree hill i agree brooke deserves her time to shine with the baby shes always wanted and we watched jamie grow up now its the newest member to the scott familys turn. i wouldlove to see payton and lucas come back but onlyat the endof the finale season just to see the whole cast together again. 

  • Randi

    I love one tree hill, please please do a season 9 at the very least. Yes lucas and peyton are gone, but what better way to start the new season with a “special” visit so peyton can meet brookes twins……please please don’t end the show

  • Lally

     this show makes me happy…so please continue…

  • Cosmogirlabh

    Oth is amazing and I absolutely love it! I agree have a special visit with everyone together so all the kids can be together and have the opportunity to meet each other! Plus Brooke deserves to shine with her baby boys! Please have a season 9

  • Kriss Tinne

     One Tree Hill Is better thanks to Nathan And Haley!!!!

  • Camz0329

     OTH should definitely continue!!!!!!!! I have been watching this show since the season started and I have loved it then and even more now that it just isnt the typical high school story. The seasons have been getting better every season and it should continue!!!!!! This last episode of season 8 was so inspiring and memorable that it should have a continuation!!!!! 

  • Vai Moananu

    i love one treehill and all charaters – im sooo pleased that brooke finally found happiness!! this is the best show ever and highly recommend season 9 with peyton and lucas back and votes for quinn n clay to get married  

  • Sledat49

    I definetly think One tree hill should come back with a ninth season. They left the end of the eighth season with soo many possibilties and ways to make it interesting to pick it back up for a ninth season in the fall. Clay and Quin, Mouth and Millie should definetly look at the possibility of getting married and Chase and Alex should start to get more serious!

  • britt

    I can watch One Tree Hill Forever!!
    Thank you Mark Schwahn :)

  • Smokey6823

    I think Oth is by far the best show to come to tv in a long time I have faihfuly watched every season and enjoyed them all i am sad that Lucas and peyton left the show and if this is going to be the inal season i think thy should come back for it there story was and epic one and it sucks they just disappeared

  • Sweetii Brii

    Since One Tree Hill aired for the very first time, I was there watching it and become hooked right after the 1st episode had finished! To this day, it remains my favourite TV show, and I have grown up with this show. Not to mention, it is a part of my life that I don’t want to be taken away any time soon!!!!

    There, without question, needs to be a season 9 which gets the show going… again….. and shocks us all in a way we Tree Hill fans never thought could happen! Mark is trully one hell of a talented man, and I know he will not let me down:D:);)!!!!!!!!

  • kelly

    i love this show!Never get tired of the episodes, i really hope they keep it going for the ninth season!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1201546708 Mandy Louise Dixon

    im gona be totally honest and said when season 7 came out and lucas and peyton wasn’t in it i thought it wouldn’t be the same but i love the whole nathan and haley story lines and the other 3 couples in it i think it would be a same not to see how brooke handles mother hood and maybe it would be nice to bring lucas and peyton back for a couple episodes xxx 

  • Smiley3

    One Tree Hill is anamzing and will all ways be my fav. I watched it with my Sister all the time. She used to make me watch it with her. I hope there will be a season 9,10, and so on. I love the show.

  • Sydty24

    One tree hill is one of the most inspiring well put together shows out on television. I definitely think it should go on for the 9th season. This show is amazing. Even without Lucas and Peyton it is still amazing. Great life lessons. Great aspirations. A wonderful, fun loving show. It needs to stay on air.

  • Jennifer92

    one tree hill NEEDS to come back for another season. even tho lucas and peyton aren’t in it anymore, it’s still a great show. definitely my favorite show ever. KEEP ONE TREE HILL!

  • alexy

    bring lucas and peyton back !!

  • vix

    one tree hill is perfect! i have never been so in love with a tv series that i feel every characters’ emotions when they get hurt. i have been watching one tree hill for 5 years now, i am 17 and addicted! despite peoples opinions that the departure of lucas and peyton was the end to one tree hill, i believe that it was a bit hit and miss at the beginning. however i think one tree hill is able to stand without chad and hilarie as new characters have been introduced and new and better story lines have cropped up and always never fail to make me gasp, gawk, and giggle! admittedly i would LOVE peyton and lucas to come back as they were pivotal characters and the relationship between julian,brooke and peyton and lucas would be interesting. either way one tree hill cannot end anytime soon as i am sure many peolple will back me up that they need it a little while longer in their lives. one tree hill cannot end now as it is loved too much by too many people. xxx

  • James

    This show has changed my whole world. When this show first came out i was like nahh but I kept watch and I fell in love with the show and this show is the reason why i have the love of my life next to me everyday and its also the reason why i started playing Basketball and 1 year lter won a State Championship game…. I own all the seasons so far that are out and it would break me to se the shoe end the way it lft off not saying it was bad because it was great but make a season 9 and plz for the love of god ive heard way to many people say this and I feel the same way PLZZZZ!!!!!  Bring back ( Lucas ) & ( Payton )……. they are the show period… Thks (CW) you changed my life with this show.

  • James

    Bring Lucas and Payton back they are the show period….yes I mean season 7 & 8 were great without them but One Tree Hill will never be One Tree Hill without the 2 thats just it…..  But still love the show

  • James

    Yes Yes Yes Yes….. You are very true my friend and you have said it all….

  • Bsktbllt32

    I really like this show. Yes I was disappointed when lucas and peyton left but they kept the story line going with so many other things! I love this show and will continue to watch until they end it which hopefuly that wont be for a while.

    It is ridiculous that the CW Network made it really clear
    to the Vice President Dawn Ostroff to only have 13 episodes on One Tree
    Hill  but the CW Network also made an
    announcement saying it’s only 13 episodes when Mark Schwahn and the One Tree
    Hill cast and Crew really want a full Season 9 On One Tree Hill  One Tree Hill Cast and Crew including Mark
    Schwahn wanted  2000 episodes on One Tree
    Hill   when all of the One Tree Hill fans
    so excited that the One Tree Hill got a renewal for OTH Season 9 Now all of the One Tree Hill fans are very upset right now becuase One Tree Hill should have a
    full season 9 on the CW Network  no way
    to 13 episodes

  • nakari

    one tree hill is a awesome show i thought i was going to b crap after lucas and peyton but surprisingly it wasn’t they should have the new generation come on the seen but with more drama

  • Rebadownton

    Please bring back Lucas and Peyton One Tree Hill is not the same without them

  • Egypt

    BRING BACK ONE TREE HILL!!!!!!!

  • Damon

    There are many things that could have made this show die but lucas and peyton leaving was not one of them however it was a big downfall to how the main character (chad) is just unexplained off the show you have to come to realize that they should have made a few episodes or somethings at least explaining them leaving or how they left… I hope that Chad and Hilarie return because this show changed my life and yes indeed i still love it but it was in fact not the same without them.

  • JAckkkk

    One tree hill is my life! I made my mom go to Wilmington just to see the set! You can’t end it ! Me and my friends are obsessed with it ! I cried last season because I thought it was over! You guys should really bring back Peyton and lucas! I think you guys can keep it going! Everybody in my school loves it, I legit think every teenager loves it you just can’t end it !

  • Kristin M

    I love One Tree Hill and think it still has alot of potential with the new characters like Quin and Clay, they have made a few good story lines so far and could make a few more great ones, like maybe a proposal or a pregnancy – but i think they shuld defo bring back Peyton Lucas and Sawyer its really not as good without them as they have been there since the first season , but the producers really need to get a new season even if it is the last just for closure , about how Brooke and JUlian cope with twins and how Jamie , Haley and Nathan cope with there new child and Nathans new career , but i really didn’t like how they ended the last episode of season 8 as they went through a year in just 40 minutes , just sorta ruined it all as they could have made a few long storylines out of it and i really want brooke to get clothes over bros back !

  • Metschulat

    I agree! I love the show and would hate to see it go, but if it’s going to go, at least send it off with some class for the fans. Let us know it is the last season and give us a chance to send it off properly. The suspense is killing most of the fans!

  • Lucasmomma09

    Ive been a fan of one tree hill since the beginning and even tho they got rid of peyton and lucas I keep watching. but I think they should keep it going and bring them back and have a season or 2 of all the kids older in high school. To see if they handle the world of parenting better than their own parents!

  • Kylietremmel

    i agree its my fave and besides meeting some of the stars when on tour two thumbs up way to go ninth season

  • Slgraham

    they shold carrie on with the show. it did get boring when Lucas and Peyton left, but still one of the best. For the last season I think they should bring Lucas and Payton back as it was them at the start of the show and two of the main acters. (:

  • Stephanie

    One Tree Hill should never be canceled! Its the best show ever! I think i would cry if it wasnt on anymore. My whole family watches it together. Ive watched it ever since it came on in 2003 and i cant imagine it not being on anymore. Its such a good show. Even if lucas and peyton arent on it anymore its still an amazing tv show and should never go off the air! :((((

  • sharon

    i think there should be 1 more season of oth it is a great show and if it is going to be canceled it needs to be sent off with a big bang and lucas and peyton back on the very last episode

  • Naebug1988

    please bring back one tree hill there is so many unfinished storey that need to be told..like how are quinn and clay how are nathan & his family did dan die or go back to jail lucas and payten and there family and the big shocker brooke julian and the twins so you cant end the best show that i have ever watched i have seen and reseen every show since it started please dont end it now

  • Guest

    I think they should doo one more season where peyton and lucas come back and theyy all have a get together and meet the new babies and everything just one more season with all the characters atleast!

  • Boobear

    Long Live OTH!!! :-)

  • Tiana

    One Tree Hill should of ended when lucas and peyton left with there baby. Seasons 7 and 8 werent the same with out them. There wasnt a point anymore because the show was mainly about lucas and peyton and since they are gone then One Tree Hill should too.

  • Gfeland

    no I dont want one tree hill to be done or. have to watch a nrw show!

  • Kristy

    I miss One Tree Hill.. I think it should have atleast one last season to end it off… One tree hill makes me happy! & it’s my fav tv show ever! :)

  • Adrieanna Kucher
