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.

“[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 Quotes

Lucas: I need you to trust me and believe me when I tell you that my heart is with you. Part of me feels like ever since we got back together you've been waiting, waiting to push me away.
Brooke: Oh great, so you kiss Peyton, again, and I'm pushing you away!?
Lucas: I love you Brooke, I don't know how else to say it.
Brooke: How about how you show it? I'm not pushing you away Lucas. I am holding on for dear life, but I need you to need me back. Okay, why wouldn't you tell me about the kiss and why didn't you call me while you were away and why won't you ever just let me all the way in? We have to go give our toasts now, about love.

Lucas: Peyton! It's you.
Peyton: What?
Lucas: When all my dreams come true, the one I want next to me. It's you. It's you Peyton.
