One Tree Hill renewal chances good?
It looks like the chances of One Tree Hill being renewed for a 8th season are good as Dawn Ostroff, president of entertainment at broadcaster The CW, reveals they’re “encouraged” by the shows performance so far for its 7th season.
It looks like the chances of One Tree Hill returning for an 8th season are pretty good. Broadcaster The CW recently handed out new season orders for dramas such as 90210, Gossip Girl, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries and yesterday announced Smallville had been renewed for a 10th season. Absent from the list of renewals was One Tree Hill prompting some to believe the broadcaster would drop the drama in favour of new series Life Unexpected. However, although it hasn’t been renewed yet its chances of being so looks good as Dawn Ostroff, president of entertainment at The CW, revealed she was “encouraged” the show.
“We’re encouraged. We think Mark Schwahn has done a great job with the show. The fans are the most loyal and dedicated I think I’ve ever seen. They have some 1.6 million fans on Facebook. Too early too tell, but creatively we feel the show is in a really good place.” Dawn Ostroff talking to Hollywood Reporter Live Feed.
One Tree Hill is currently in its 7th season and a few expected it to go get so far. In the shows early days it was up against the far more popular drama The O.C but when ratings fell for the drama after four seasons – and the departure of Mischa Barton – Fox quickly cancelled the series One Tree Hill saw ratings rise.
