A Mysterious One Tree Hill Reunion Project is Coming This Christmas

One Tree Hill superfans, get ready to freak TF out! The OTH cast is cooking up something for a release this Christmas, and since it's been over six years since the show wrapped up, we could not be more excited to figure out what it is.

You may have noticed a few of your favorite actors were using the hashtag #Christmas2018 six months early this year – and that's because, from what we can tell from their social media posts, several of the castmembers are teaming up to work on a mystery project set to release at the end of this year. While only Hilarie Burton (Peyton Sawyer), Danneel Ackles (Rachel Gatina), Antwon Tanner (Antwon “Skills” Taylor), and Robert Buckley (Clay Evans) were pictured at this One Tree Hill reunion, we're hoping that Chad Michael Murray, James Lafferty, Bethany Joy Lenz, and Sophia Bush were lurking somewhere else on set while the photos were being taken. Mysteriously, all the photos were deleted from Instagram – but not before TVLine snagged some screenshots!





Robert joked that it was “Always great making new friends on set,” and Antwon mentioned that he was “On set working with some oldies but goodies.” All of the stars who posted photos said it was coming #Christmas2018. Will it be a One Tree Hill holiday special? That just might be the best present we get this year – though only if the whole gang is reunited on-screen. Others have speculated that they all just happen to be working on a made-for-TV Christmas movie for a network like Lifetime or Hallmark. But, seriously, what are the chances that they'd get so many OTH stars for one single flick?

All of these actors getting together for a formal One Tree Hill revival would be a bit of a surprise considering Hilarie quit the show early after showrunner Mark Schwahn allegedly repeatedly sexually assaulted her during her time on the show. In 2017, she and 17 other OTH cast and crewmembers accused him of on-set sexual harassment in an open letter signed by Hilarie, Sophia, Bethany, and several others. However, all of those women have been part of OTH panels throughout the years, so it's possible that without Mark's involvement, they would return to their beloved characters.

Only time will tell what Hilarie, Danneel and the others have in store for us – we just hope we don't have to wait until December to find out!
