'One Tree Hill' gets full-season pickup from CW [CORRECTED]
"One Tree Hill" fans, we know you've been on an emotional roller coaster this summer, and we totally feel your pain.
The veteran series got a last-minute Season 8 pickup from The CW back in May, but disappointment set in when, at the CW's Upfront Presentation, Dawn Ostroff revealed that the network had only ordered 13 episodes, not a full season.
"We don't know if they're going to come back yet for 22 episodes each," Ostroff said in May. "They may. We haven't really talked about exact numbers yet."
As recently as yesterday, star Sophia Bush was unsure of the series' future. " No official word about 22 episodes for Season 8 yet," she tweeted.
Rest easy, Ravens fans. Zap2it has confirmed that "One Tree Hill" has officially been picked up for a full 22-episode season by The CW. It's a good thing that we've got a full-length season, as this may be the last Tree Hill sees of original cast members Bush, James Lafferty, and Bethany Joy Galeotti, whose contracts expire this year.
Congrats OTHers! We'll be watching right along with you when it premieres Tuesday, September 14 on The CW. Don't forget to vote for Sophia in the Teen Choice Awards -- if she wins, she'll be auctioning off her surfboard for Global Green to help restore the Gulf coast!
