One Tree Hill is not included on The CW's fall schedule. That's because the drama will return in January with its final run of 13 episodes.
But network bosses have news that might soften this blow for fans: Chad Murray and Hilarie Burton could very well appear on season nine at some point.
“[New CW boss] Mark Pedowitz is going to talk with them,” outgoing preisdent Dawn Ostroff told TV Line at the Upfronts. “I don’t think anything has been done yet, but now that everybody knows that this is the final 13 episodes... ”
“... that makes it more possible as far as cast members coming back,” Pedowitz jumped in.
Let's all hope the former and upcoming head honchos are correct, shall we?
