Chad Michael Murray & Hilarie Burton's 'One Tree Hill' departures confirmed

Chadmichaelmurray_onetreehill_290 Though we've known for months that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton would not return to "One Tree Hill" this fall for the series' seventh season, The CW has just now officially confirmed the actors' exits.

A network rep tells me they will be welcoming two new cast members, in addition to Austin Nichols, as series regulars.
