Chad Michael Murray Has a Vision for a Possible 'One Tree Hill' Reboot
The ‘OTH’ star has ideas pertaining to a new generation.
“I have an idea that’s been bouncing around in my head to do a new generation of this show, dealing with today’s issue,” Murray, who played Lucas Scott, told E! News. “There’s just so many things now that are so very different than it was back in the early aughts. So, you can do issues that are relating to children and kids that [they] are dealing in high school today.”
One Tree Hill, which took place in the fictional town of Tree Hill, North Carolina, was a coming-of-age teen series about two half brothers (Murray and James Lafferty) navigating their passion for basketball while dealing with intense family drama, complicated relationships and heartbreak. Additionally, the series touched on other serious topics such as sex, self-love, mental health, death, the transition from adolescence to adulthood and everything that follows.
While Murray can’t confirm if there will be a reboot or reunion, he believes it’s likely. “I can’t imagine that it won’t [happen] at some point,” he said. “We get asked all the time. I know I do. And I know Hilarie [Burton] does, and I see everybody at least once or twice a year.”
Stay tuned for more updates on a possible One Tree Hill reboot.
