One Tree Hill Spoilers: Replacing Lucas and Peyton

at . Comments

How is One Tree Hill going to explain Lucas and Peyton's sudden absence from the coming season now that stars Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton aren't returning?

This burning question is eating away at One Tree Hill fans.

The answer from the producers? Damned if we know!

A show rep suggests that it will involve a bit of rebooting" "Obviously, we have new stories to tell, but at the same time, this season really feels like classic One Tree Hill."

Lucas and Peyton's departure is tough to swallow ... and work around.

How is that going to work, exactly? "Some characters might be in an episode for just one scene, but it's a scene that serves the story and the serialized nature of our season."

So basically, they haven't figured it out yet.

But we can be sure that by "classic" One Tree Hill, that means more cheesy One Tree Hill quotes than you can stomach! Not that we're complaining. Not by any means.

One Tree Hill Quotes

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.

Remember tonight, for it is the beginning of always. A promise, like a reward for persisting through life so long alone. A belief in each other and the possibility of love. A decision to ignore simply rise above the pain in the past. A covenant, which at once binds two souls and yet severs prior ties. The celebration of the chance taken and the challenge that lies ahead. For two will always be stronger than one. Like a team braced against the tempests of the world. And love will always be the guiding force in our lives. For tonight is mere formality. Only an announcement to the world of feelings long held, promises made long ago in the sacred space in our hearts.
