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.
StarNews: Craig Sheffer reflects on his time in Wilmington, his new Hallmark movie and his role on “One Tree Hill”

Sheffer loved dining at Port City Chop House, where he often ordered shrimp on the half shell. He enjoyed margaritas from the sofa bar at Caprice Bistro and the spinach and ricotta rolled with tomato sauce from Circa 1922.
“The downtown area was great, man,” he said. “You know, there was a bar every two address numbers and a restaurant every three. You got to really know people.
While filming “One Tree Hill,” Sheffer stayed both in downtown Wilmington and at Wrightsville Beach.
“It was beautiful down there,” he said. “The beach is incredible. I like it so much more than the California beaches. The water’s so cold here and (there are) so many rocks on the water. And the people (in Wilmington) are just great. Southern people are just really laid-back and welcoming.”.
The experience would have been much different fo Sheffer had “One Tree Hill” filmed in Canada, as Sheffer said was a real possibility.
“They were deciding between Wilmington and Vancouver” to film the show, Sheffer said. “We didn’t know which one it would be. The studio , money wise, knew they could make it a lot cheaper in Vancouver. The (state’s film) incenntives weren’t quite what they are now. (Creator) Mark Schwahn and Joe Davola, the producer, fought really hard to get it in Wilmington and kept it in Wilmington.”
Talking with Sheffer about the show, it’s clear he’s more jazzed about the filming location than his even-keeled character.
“Keith is a very simple character,” Sheffer said, adding that characters like Keith aren’t the most fun to play. “I actually prefer more of a challenge. He wasn’t a hugely interesting charcter. But he was a good guy and he was just a really genuine human being with good intentions. And that’s a nice thing to play and come home at the end of the day. You don’t bring too much with you. We had some good scenes within the framework of a simple character, so there was some of that stuff to play, but also a lot of cheesy stuff.”
Sheffer said he enjoyed working opposite Moira Kelly (who played his romantic foil, Karen), but he said the highlights of filming were those scenes he shared with Paul Johansson, who plays Dan, Keith’s evil brother.
“That was the stuff where it was actually dramatic,” said Sheffer, whose characters was ultimately killed by Dan. “Those were the most fun scenes to play, and Paul and I always had a good time together.”

2:26 p.m. No alternate ending was ever shot for “One Tree Hill,” which closed on a big cliffhanger. Ostroff says it’s way too early to speculate on whether or not this one will actually be the last “One Tree Hill” season. She says they’d love to have another season.

* One Tree Hill may live on beyond this season, threatened revealed CW prez Dawn Ostroff. Same goes for Supernatural, which Ostroff said she is “feeling really enthusiastic about… Everybody on the show feels there’s a lot of juice left in the characters. We hope it goes on for more than one more season.”

I’m hearing that this is only a rumor and I haven’t seen it either confirmed or denied by any official or large media source. I still don’t see why Dawn would’ve said that but just hang in there and we’ll see!
CW President Dawn Ostroff confirmed today that we are getting the full 22 episodes. I can’t help it, it’s still gets me pumped! Woot!

Sophia Bush: So the CW said they might not renew us for Season8, now they say they’d be happy to have Season9?? Something’s fishy here…
It was widely known the show was on the bubble for Season 8 and fans had to put up a tough fight to keep the show around for an 8th season. Many fans have tweeted from Wilmington recently about this season being the last after hearing it straight from cast and crew alike. After Dawn’s comments were posted here earlier this morning from an interview with Wilmington newspaper Star News, many fans were baffled as well. I have to agree with Sophia. Something is indeed fishy here.
So I’m just curious. I know Season 8 hasn’t even started yet, but as of now would you support a Season 9?
Poll closed. The ratios stayed near the same. Only 20% give a whole-hearted no to Season 9. Could be biased because you voted on a fan site but I think that’s still pretty strong.
