Breaking News: One Tree Hill Renewed For 8th Season

18 05 2010

The CW has renewed One Tree Hill for an 8th season, according to Entertainment Weekly’s Michel Ausiello.

Ausiello reports The CW also renewed Life Unexpected, starring Shiri Appleby (Rene, Beverly Hills 90210) and Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek).

Ausiello says the renewals for OTH and LUX are for “at least 12 eps apiece.”

The network also reportedly ordered Nikita, featuring Melinda Clarke (Julie, The O.C.) and executive produced by McG (executive producer, The O.C.) , and Hellcats with Matt Barr (Ian “Psycho Derek” Banks, One Tree Hill; Keith van der Woodsen, Gossip Girl) and Robbie Jones (Quentin, One Tree Hill) as well as Ashley Tisdale, who once guest-starred on Beverly Hills 90210.

Per Ausiello, Melrose Place, which featured Laura Leighton (Sophie, Beverly Hills 90210) and Daphne Zuniga (Victoria, One Tree Hill), “is officially dead.”

The news is now being confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter as well as E!’s Kristin and other sources.

I have confirmed that the OTH folks do not yet know how many episodes the network will order, and Kristin reports that there is “no official word on what kind of episode orders OTH  and LUX have received, but we’re hearing they’ll split the season down the middle with 13 each.”

This presumably means Sophia Bush is out of the ABC pilot Southern Discomfort, since OTH takes priority. ABC has not yet announced whether they will order the pilot as a series or recast her role.

The CW will present their fall schedule to advertisers and the media Thursday morning in New York City. Honored to share I will be in attendance and tweeting from the event. A recap will be posted on TDW late in the day.

Well, I’m glad for Life Unexpected at least. This weeks OTH was a great wrap up for me (then again, I couldn’t care less about Quinn and she makes Clay someone I have to fastforward through).

Thing 3

Yes finally, the end of OTH…
I’m just curious to see how it will end. Although i will miss the show…its time for it to go

Great news! My fingers are crossed for an awesome season next year.

I’m glad OTH will get a proper ending, but it should end after this next season. I know they can’t bring back Lucas and Peyton, but I would love to see it end with all the main characters and their families on the rivercourt like in season 4.
Also, I’m so happy for Robbie Jones!! I LOVED him as Quentin in OTH so I will definetly be watching his new show!

YES!!!! 🙂 12 episodes is good enough to plan a proper OTH ending.

I do not know whether to be ecstatic or neutral. OTH was a bit of a cliffhanger….I just hope Quinn dies….or Clay….both would be too cheesy. Though I wouldnt mind it. Theyre both so lame. Quinn is the worst.

Quinn is okay but she’s no P. Sawyer 😉
