Sophia Bush teases One Tree Hill reboot
Sophia Bush is open to making a ‘One Tree Hill’ reboot.
The 38-year-old actress hasn’t ruled out a return to the teen drama – in which she played Brooke Davis – and teased the cast have been in talks about a possible reboot.
Asked about the possibility, she told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “I mean, I can’t spill all of our secrets, but I’d say never say never.”
Sophia was a part of the show’s run from 2003 to 2012 with Bethany Joy Lenz and James Lafferty, as well as Hilarie Burton and Chad Michael Murray, who both left the drama after season six.
The ‘Chalet Girl’ star recently reunited with Hilarie and Bethany – who played Peyton Sawyer and Haley James, respectively – for their new podcast ‘Drama Queens’.
They decided to launch their own series after Sophia noticed fans were rewatching ‘One Tree Hill’ during the coronavirus lockdown.
She explained: “I noticed that on social media, all these people were saying they were [rewatching] ‘One Tree Hill’ … And I was like, ‘Is this our moment? … Should we do this now?’
“So I called Hilarie and I said, ‘You tell me if this is crazy, but you left first, so I’m asking you first. What do you think?’ She was like, ‘Yeah, I’m in. Call Joy.’ I was like, ‘All right, I’m adding her in.’ I called Joy and we were just like, ‘Yeah, let’s do this.'”
Together, they sat and watched ‘One Tree Hill’ for the first time since 2003 while their fans listened.
Sophia added: “We’re starting at the beginning, not having seen the pilot since it aired in 2003. It’s so good.
“We just watched the second episode and all of us were crying at the end. We were like, ‘Wait, it really holds. It really works.’ We just haven’t experienced it like that [before].”
