Season 7 Repeats
This season, One Tree Hill introduces new characters and stories to complement an established core of beloved faces.
Navigating their twenties without a road map, the denizens of Tree Hill are finding more questions than answers. But sometimes the search for answers leads you to great places - places you were meant to be. And sometimes simply finding the right person to ride shotgun on your journey is the most important piece to the puzzle.
In season seven, our characters struggle to keep their dreams alive, their friendships intact, and their lives full, in the place they call home.
Having finally professed her love for Julian (Austin Nichols), Brooke (Sophia Bush) tries to reconcile her desire for a stable home life with the uncertainty of dating a film producer.
Meanwhile, as his NBA career flourishes, Nathan (James Lafferty) navigates the pitfalls of being in the spotlight, with the help of his charismatic sports agent and friend, Clay (Robert Buckley).
Equally busy recording for Red Bedroom Records, Haley's (Bethany Joy Galeotti) attempt to juggle motherhood, a career, and a famous husband are complicated when her free-spirited sister Quinn (Shantel VanSanten) returns with a surprising revelation.
Jamie (Jackson Brundage) remains the brightest spot in Nathan and Haley's lives as they refuse to let him get lost in the shadows of their successful careers.
Millie's (Lisa Goldstein) relationship with Mouth (Lee Norris) is challenged when she forms a friendship with the new face of Clothes Over Bros, starlet and train-wreck, Alex (Jana Kramer).
Skills (Antwon Tanner) must choose between a settled life with Lauren (Allison Munn) and his desire for a new and exciting career.
Finally, with the knowledge that his weakening heart could fail at any moment, Dan Scott (Paul Johansson) struggles to find forgiveness in what little time he has left on the earth.
One Tree Hill was created by Mark Schwahn and is executive produced by Schwahn, Joe Davola, Greg Prange, Mike Tollin and Brian Robbins. One Tree Hill is a Mastermind Laboratories and Tollin/Robbins Production in association with Warner Bros. Television.
