CW Slots ‘One Tree Hill’

November 19, 2007 2:39 PM

One Tree HillThe CW announced the premiere date for the return of “One Tree Hill” and gave some hints about the fifth-season storyline.

The story will pick up four years after the events in last season’s finale. The show will have a two-hour premiere Jan. 8, then take its regular time period of Tuesdays at 9 p.m.

Of course, that’s the “Reaper” slot, so here’s the deal there: “Reaper” is a repeat tonight. The show will air two more originals this year. “One Tree” will go into its time period. The CW plans to air the remaining episodes of "Reaper," possibly giving them a shot in a different time period.

Tempting to write a grim “Reaper” prospects headline here, given the show’s ratings performance, but the network and the entertainment press have a lot of affection for that show and The CW hopes to make it work.

One Tree Hill Fan:

I can't wait for season 5! It's been a looong time...

Cassandra Schwartz:

I'm very happy to see that One Tree Hill is coming back. I really don't watch any tv while it's not been on. I'm a fan that has seen every second of One Tree Hill and I feel that there is enough of demand of fans that would prefer OTH over Reaper or a lot of the new shows that has been brought out. I can't wait....Thank god we are getting OTH back.

Jenna:

So glad to hear!! Been waiting for this season to start. After last seasons scare of possibly not being picked up by the CW, So Happy to hear OTH comming back!!

Kelly:

YEYYYYYYYYYYYY ONE TREE HILL!! I CANT WAIT!!

Reaper started to lose me a couple weeks ago. If you're gonna label something a comedy, it should be funny.

It got much less funny over the course of its episodes.

Kristen :

i just started watching One Tree Hill on soap net this year and i got hooked, ive watched all 4 season and i cant wait until the 5th season starts. I would def rather see OTH then the reaper...

Tammy:

I watched last nights episode and am sooo Glad one Tree Hill is back. There is finally a show that talks to people in there late 20's. I love the idea that not everyone got all that the wanted (like Mouth)it gives the show a stronger reality. I can relate to this show, and I am sure millions of others can as well. I loved the old One tree Hill, and feel like I have grown up with it's character's in a way. What TOOK SO LONG! :)

I love one tree Hill, smallville, supernatural...I don't know what happened when they changed WB to CW, but alot of great shows are gone to be replaced by REAPER! I miss Gilmore Girls and all the shows that gave character to the network. Please leave one tree hill on as long as possible, I am glad you are makeing a come back!! YEAH
