No Comeback For Former ‘One Tree Hill’ Stars

Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton will not be returning as Lucas and Peyton in One Tree Hill, it has been announced.

Previously it was thought that the pair would make a comeback, if only for one episode, but executive producer Mark Schwahn has told TV Line that this will not happen.

“It’s not going to happen. We won’t be seeing them this year,â€? he said. “Quite frankly, we just couldn’t make a deal.â€?

“Hilarie now has a child and a family and she’s doing some nice work [on White Collar]. Chad was working on a movie down in Louisiana and there were some dates we were trying to work around, but it’s tricky when you try to line up all those stars sometimes.â€?

“Everybody had the best intentions, but at the end of the day it just didn’t work out.â€?

Perhaps the most shocking part of this is that One Tree Hill is still on the air. You learn something new every day…
