ProductionEdit

I could never say no given what this has been. Every year it’s, ‘Do we think it can get picked up again? Do we think it can go?’ And every year… we pick it up. You never count Mark out. Every year he comes back, and he's made the show better.

—Dawn Ostroff on the possibility on continuing the series past season eight.[24]

The series was officially renewed for en eighth season on May 20, 2010.[25] It was also announced the show would move to Tuesday's at 8:00 p.m. Eastern/7:00 p.m. Central, as a lead-in to Life Unexpected.[25] The season premiered on September 14, 2010.[26] Entertainment Weekly first reported that there would be a crossover event with Life Unexpected. In the crossover, Haley and Mia traveled to Portland (where Life Unexpected is set) to sing in a music festival hosted by Cate's radio station. Haley and Cate met and were "surprised to learn that they share a similar back story [as] mothers." The CW was hoping that the crossover event would make One Tree Hill's viewers want to check out Life Unexpected. The episode aired October 12.[27]

The original theme song of the show, "I Don't Want to Be" by Gavin DeGraw and original credit format will return for this season. Mark Schwahn has decided to introduce a new style of the theme song every week by selecting different artists to perform it such as Kate Voegele and members of Fall Out Boy. This will be the first season in 3 years to feature the opening credits.[28]

On September 23, The CW ordered an additional 6 scripts for One Tree Hill, with its production order still at 13.[29] On October 22, 2010, the show was picked up for a full-season, which will total at 22 episodes.[30][31]

CastEdit

Everybody had the best intentions. But at the end of the day, it just didn’t work out.

—Mark Schwahn on Murray and Burton not returning.[32]

At the beginning of the season, Mark Schwahn said "there are a lot of people we'd like to bring back," specifically Paul Johansson and Danneel Harris.[33] Sophia Bush also revealed that she would like to see Harris return.[33] Sharon Lawrence signed on for a multi-episode arc to play Julian's mother who comes to Tree Hill to help plan Brooke and Julian's wedding. She has been described as a "monster-in-law".[34] Laura Izibor also joined the cast as a musician in the same capacity as Kate Voegele.[35] Kid Cudi will guest star in one episode for a concert Haley hosts at TRIC.[36] Dave Navarro will also guest star as himself.[37]

E! Online confirmed that there are plans for Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton to return to the series in Season 8. Schwahn has said that the actors busy schedules may prevent a return in time for Brooke's wedding, but hopes they can return later in the season.[38] On December 7, 2010, Kristin Dos Santos reported that Murray and Burton would definitely not be back for Brooke's wedding, but they are still expected to return.[39] However, in a January 2011 interview, Hilarie Burton stated that she will not be returning to the show due to her busy schedule.[40] Despite rumors to the contrary, Bethany Joy Galeotti has said she will be with the series until the end.[41] Paul Johansson reprised his role as Dan Scott for one episode.[42] Stephen Colletti was upgraded to series regular status from episode 14,[43] after appearing in a recurring capacity since season four.

Movieline reported that The Blind Side actor Quinton Aaron would appear in the 14th episode of the season. He played Tommy, a student in Nathan's business class, whom he formed a bond with.[44] Leven Rambin of Grey's Anatomy began a recurring role in episode 16. She played a young woman that Brooke crossed paths with as she explored adoption options.[45] Mark Schwahn confirmed that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton would definitely not be in the final few episodes of season 8. He said on the matter, "Quite frankly, we just couldn’t make a deal."[32]

StoryEdit

I think that's what the fans want. They want to see Lucas and Peyton come back one more time and they want to see everybody together again. I think that's a healthy reward for the fans, after watching for so long. At this point, eight seasons in, what I want is to see the fans get what they want.

—James Lafferty on a possible Murray and Burton return.[46]

Before season eight began, Mark Schwahn said there would be fewer crazy storylines and the show would return to its roots focusing on the core group of regulars and some guest stars, rather than the 30 or so from season 7. He was also hopeful for a Lucas and Peyton return for Brooke's wedding and the birth of Haley's baby.[28] He has also mentioned the new love triangle he was developing, "Alex (Jana Kramer) has moved on to a new guy and a new triangle. She took a liking to Chase (Stephen Colletti) after he and Mia (Kate Voegele) broke up, but in the final episode, Mia made it clear via text that she regretted the decision to end it with him. This season, viewers will see who Chase really wants to be with. The Chase-Alex-Mia situation is front and center at the beginning of the season."[28]

Brooke Davis is happier than ever; preparing to marry Julian Baker. Nathan prepares for his second season in the NBA; The Scott family are expecting their second child and Haley feels the baby will be a girl. Also, Quinn and Clay's lives hang in the balance.[47] Robert Buckley has said Clay will be suffering from a chest wound.[48] Both Clay and Quinn were later released and struggle with life back at the beach house. Entertainment Weekly reported that Victoria and Millicent will jeopardize the future of Brooke's company.[49] They began lying to investors about Clothes Over Bro's finances to fund the men's line, causing Brooke to be arrested.[50] She later made the decision to give up the company and her personal fortune in order to pay back investors in full, causing a new rift between her and Victoria[51] as Victoria only went to prison so Brooke could keep her company.[51]

Nathan abandoned basketball after finding out his back was getting worse.[51] Quinn goes after Katie Ryan when she returns to Tree Hill from a photography trip to Africa, where she had detoured to track Katie down.[52]

A major hurricane struck Tree Hill,[53] leaving Brooke and Jamie's life in danger.
