Zap2it is reporting that CW has given One Tree Hill a full season pickup for 22 episodes. When its renewal was announced in May it was given a 13 episode order with an option for a back nine.
Rest easy, Ravens fans. Zap2it has confirmed that “One Tree Hill” has officially been picked up for a full 22-episode season by The CW. It’s a good thing that we’ve got a full-length season, as this may be the last Tree Hill sees of original cast members Bush, James Lafferty, and Bethany Joy Galeotti, whose contracts expire this year.
Update: Zap2It later updated its story as follows:
CORRECTION, AUG. 3: A network source now says that word of a “One Tree Hill” full-season order was mistakenly confirmed last week and that Season 8 still stands at 13 episodes with a possible back nine to be ordered at a later date.
