Now, how will the young couple juggle parenthood and their careers?
The show enters its eighth season with more than 150 episodes under its belt. And the best is yet to come. This season finds Brooke Davis happier than ever. Recently engaged to Julian Baker. As Nathan Scott prepares for his second season in the NBA, the Scott family is expecting their second child and Haley feels as though the baby will be a girl. How will she balance her pregnancy while raising Jamie and pursuing her music career? Also, the lives of Quinn and Clay hang in the balance, the result of a brutal attack by Katie, which affects all of their friends and family.
Now in its seventh season, One Tree Hill jumps ahead 14 months ahead in the journeys of its beloved characters. Joining the cast are Austin Nichols as Julian; Shantel VanSanten as Hayley's sister, Quinn; and Robert Buckley, as Nathan's sports agent.
In a small North Carolina town, two estranged half brothers carry on very different lives. Basketball prodigy Nathan Scott has inherited the throne of high school popularity once held by his father, Dan, while Lucas Scott, also a talented player, stays an outsider. Spending nights shooting hoops on a riverfront court, Lucas remains the son Dan never acknowledged. Now, Lucas' and Nathan's paths intersect for the first time, and in the middle of the crossroads stands Peyton Sawyer, Nathan's beautiful, edgy girlfriend who just may have more in common with Lucas.
The plot of ONE TREE HILL takes an unprecedented four-year jump forward in time. Some characters will be very familiar; others will be radically different. Some relationships will have become stronger; others will no longer exist.
Lucas and Nathan have a little in common, but they share the same father. The star of the basketball team, Nathan was raised to inherit his father's popularity and wealth, while his half-brother, Lucas, was raised as the only child of a single mom. Although Peyton was Nathan's girlfriend, she felt an instant connection to Lucas. And Peyton's best friend, Brooke set her sights on Lucas as well.
Season three finds many questions still unanswered. Entering senior year, Lucas realizes his life is as messy as ever as he considers his feelings for Brooke and Peyton and, with basketball season approaching, his attempts to reconcile with Nathan grow more urgent. Nathan must decide whether to trust his heart with Haley, or if they should both move on. Haley, too, struggles to find a way to balance music, school, love and friendship. Peyton is recovering from the loss of her boyfriend, and her confusion and anger upon learning the truth about her mother.
Lucas and Nathan are bound by the fact that they share the same father. As Nathan is increasingly brought into the world Lucas knew before he joined the high school team, the two boys begin acting like brothers, not enemies, for the first time.
Aside from basketball, Nathan Scott and Lucas Scott have little in common -- but the two young men share the same father, Dan. After growing up in opposite worlds in the same small town, the half-brothers find their lives colliding.
