Will Chad Murray and Hilarie Burton Return for Final Season of One Tree Hill?

at . Comments

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.

Chad Murray and Hilarie Burton

“[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?

One Tree Hill to me was always about flmiay and friendships. I think the fans as well as the actors deserve the best ending possible to this show. Lucas and Peyton were a huge part to all the characters' story lines and I really hope Hilarie Burton and Chad Michael Murray can come back for all or at least most of the last 13 episodes. Otherwise, I doubt I'll watch the ending cuz I'd like to leave it as it ended, first in season 6, and then in season 8. I do agree that the show was good after Leyton left BUT it was not even CLOSE to how good it could have been had they stayed. So yes, I hope with all my heart that the actors have time and the ending is as great and happy as we all hope it will be .


Lucas and peyton should try to make it up to their fans,even if not for any oher thing but at least for their fans.We miss u guys


definitely chad and hilary should come back,this the ending season for the entire run...they should be part of it,they should insist to be part of it...its where they came from...and i think it will not give any harm if for the last time they will be part of OTH....As they say...to be able to go forward in life..one should not forget to look back where one came from...."


Well if we go by that hilarie is a season regular on WC yet hasnt appear except in one episode mayb she was filming for OTH well thats what im hoping


they must come back they are the reason i started watching one tree hill and its good for them to have a prolonged happy ending


Peyton & Lucas are the greatest love story ever told... if they don't come back for the last season i will be very disappoited. But i have this gut feeling they will, they know their fans love them. I'm very sad to see this show end but i can say i have learned so many things because of these special characters.


of course they need to come back!!!!!!!!!! oth is them!!!!!!!


Go to oth blog and vote for Lucas and Peyton to return season 9. We need 5000 votes.


I seriously hope they come back. I miss them so much. And I can't believe it's ending!!! :(


HELL YEAH of course we want to see Leyton back the whole point of OTH was about the 2 brothers.

One Tree Hill Quotes

Peyton: Imagine a future moment in your life where all your dreams come true. You know, it's the greatest moment of your life and you get to experience it with one person. Who's standing next to you?
Lucas: Umm, Kate Bosworth.
Peyton: Luke, come on, it could be anybody you know. Your mom, Haley...
Skills: Your boy Skills.
Peyton: Who's it gonna be?
Lucas: Brooke.
Peyton: Alright, if that's what you really want, then I have a way for you to get her back.

Happiness is not a destination. It is a mood, it is not permanent. It comes and goes and if people thought that way then maybe people would find happiness more often.
