Can you believe it's been 17 years since One Tree Hill first aired?! (17 years, 10 months, 10 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did One Tree Hill end?
When One Tree Hill came to an end after 9 years in April 2012, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Haley James Scott (Bethany Joy Lenz), Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray), Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton) and Nathan Scott (James Lafferty). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would an One Tree Hill reunion disappoint people?
One Tree Hill aired from 2003-2012 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Lafferty said he's not sure if One Tree Hill would work today. “I don't want to see old Nathan Scott,” he told a journalist (Lafferty turned 36 in July). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for an One Tree Hill movie?
In a recent interview, Hilarie Burton said she can't imagine an One Tree Hill reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Tyler Hilton (who played Chris Keller) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did an One Tree Hill movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an One Tree Hill film, Chad Michael Murray stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about an One Tree Hill reboot?
Recasting One Tree Hill for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of an One Tree Hill reunion, an One Tree Hill movie, or an One Tree Hill reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
