Exclusive: E4 has the rights to the final season of One Tree Hill and plans to begin airing the show’s ninth season within the next few months, sources at the channel confirm exclusively to TVWise. I’m being told that a firm premiere date has not been set, but they are zeroing in on sometime in March as the probable air date.
The series, which comes from Warner Bros. Television, was renewed by American broadcaster The CW for a short 13 episode swan song back in May.
The series stars James Lafferty, Bethany Joy Galeotti, Sophia Bush, Austin Nichols, Robert Buckley, Shantel VanSanten, Jackson Brundage, Lee Norris, Jana Kramer, Lisa Goldstein, Stephen Colletti, Tyler Hilton and Paul Johansson and revolves around the residents of Tree Hill. Original series star Chad Michael Murray is poised to make a return in the season’s seventh episode.
