One Tree Hill Renewed for a Shortened 9th Season?

The CW gave early renewals to several of its long-running shows recently, including Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, 90210 and America’s Next Top Model. But the fate of one long-running show – One Tree Hill – was up in the air.

TV Line’s Ausiello has just made the announcement that One Tree Hill has, in fact, been renewed for a ninth season. He said: “I’m willing to bet all of my Super Smurfs on it.” But don’t expect a full season order. The show will only be returning for approximately 13 episodes.

Let’s be clear that this isn’t official confirmation from The CW. Several One Tree Hill stars did recently sign contracts for a ninth season, including Sophia Bush, Bethany Joy Galeotti, Austin Nichols, Robert Buckley, Jana Kramer and Lisa Goldstein. But the network didn’t comment about the status. The current season 8 was only supposed to have around 13 episodes, but the season was extended by nine additional episodes when the show performed well earlier in the season.

The CW may be waiting until its Upfront presentation on May 19 to give official confirmation about this rumor, so it may be another week before we know the fate of One Tree Hill. The CW also hasn’t confirmed anything about the renewal or cancellation of two other shows: freshman series Hellcats and Nikita. The fate of these could depend on how well their pilots for next year are testing. I hear the Kevin Williamson-produced The Secret Circle is testing well, so there’s a good chance it could land a spot on the schedule for next year.
