Mark Your Calendars: One Tree Hill Returns January 8!
Finally, some official OTH news! The CW has confirmed that One Tree Hill will kick off its fifth season on TUESDAY, January 8, with a two-hour premiere. After the big premiere, the show will move to the 9/8c timeslot on Tuesdays following Crowned encores (Reaper will return later in the season). Here's the word from the network:
The fifth season of One Tree Hill will be unprecedented in the annals of television drama, as the show leaps forward four years. Season four ended as the young characters graduated high school and season five begins, post-college, four years later. Some of the characters have found success while others have failed. Some are the same, some are very different. And while their storylines will actively move forward, the show will also dip into the past, returning to incidents and events of the last four years, sometimes for a moment or a scene, other times for an entire episode.
It sounds like we'll be treated to some revealing flashback episodes. But what we want to know most is... who failed!? And who will have changed the most? Also, will the cast have new looks now that we've moved four years in the future? Yes, we're shallow like that, but we love makeovers.
So -- we have less than two months to go until the big premiere. Are you happy to have an official date, or is it still too long to wait? Who are you most excited to see in the premiere? Tell us your OTH-related thoughts, and let's start the countdown to January 8! Only 50 days to go...
