The fifth season of "One Tree Hill" will be unprecedented in the annals of television drama, as the show leaps forward four years. Season four ended as the young characters graduated high school and season five begins post-college, four years later. Some of the characters have found success while others have failed. Some are the same, some are very different. And while their storylines will actively move forward, the show will also dip into the past, returning to incidents and events of the last four years, sometimes for a moment or a scene, other times for an entire episode.
The CW Network announced today midseason plans for the 2011-2012 season, including the final 13 episodes of One Tree Hill, the series premiere of Remodeled and the return of original episodes across the schedule, starting Thursday, January 5 with The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle.
The final season of One Tree Hill premieres Wednesday, January 11 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET). In its final 13 episodes, how will Brooke and Julian juggle parenthood and their very young careers? With Nathan traveling more as an agent, how will Haley's life change with a second child, an increasingly independent Jamie, and a busy café to run? Is a wedding in store for Quinn and Clay, or for Mouth and Millicent? And what's to become of Alex and Chase and their burgeoning romance? The series stars Sophia Bush as Brooke Davis, Bethany Joy Galeotti as Haley James Scott, James Lafferty as Nathan Scott, Robert Buckley as Clay Evans, Austin Nichols as Julian Baker, Shantel VanSanten as Quinn James and Jackson Brundage as Jamie Scott. One Tree Hill was created by Mark Schwahn and is executive produced by Schwahn, Joe Davola, Gregory Prange, Michael Tollin and Brian Robbins. The series is produced by Mastermind Laboratories and Tollin/Robbins Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.Read More

Sometimes an actor can be just so right for a part based on where they came from. Lee Norris grew up in the basketball-friendly state of North Carolina and attended the ACC powerhouse school Wake Forest, known for a rich legacy of college basketball greatness. Norris plays Marvin "Mouth" McFadden, who becomes a basketball commentator on the hit CW series One Tree Hill, which is currently airing its seventh season on Monday nights at 8 PM ET on the CW Network.
