One Tree Hill Spoilers & News: New Melrose Place Deal Sealing Fate of One Tree Hill

Melrose Place Fox

Inside sources confirm: One Tree Hill boss Mark Schwahn is in talks to write the pilot for the CW’s new Melrose Place.

According to one well-placed CW insider, Schwahn is “the biggest name” and “top candidate” available for the remake of the ’90s spinoff to Beverly Hills, 90210.

“The deal is not done yet,” another reliable network source tells me. “But it looks like it’s going to happen. I would be surprised if it didn’t go through.”

So what does this mean for the future of One Tree Hill?

All good things!

According to insiders, CW president Dawn Ostroff and her team have been so pleased with the creative direction of One Tree Hill, they are planning to pick up the series for at least another season or two. (Say it with me, fans: Holler!)

The CW suits also are making sure Schwahn will stay on as OTH executive producer even if he also works on the new Melrose.

What’s that they say about the cake and the eating of it?

Schwahn has asked that the network make a decision on season seven of Tree Hill before Jan. 1 (in order to plot out the final episodes of the current season), so news of a seventh-season pickup should come very soon.

Given his Tree Hill track record, Schwahn certainly seems a good man for the job. And as long as he doesn’t spread himself too thin, this is all fantastic news for fans. Agree? Disagree? Share your thoughts below…

    I can HONESTLY say i NEVER miss an episode, it IS my life.
    I would die, if OTH ended anytime soon.
    & i’m sure there are others out there thinking the same exact thing.

    So PLEASE keep going with this amazing show!!

    I love One Tree Hill but I only want it to continue if they will tell good stories. I used to love 7th Heaven but then it got bad after Season 7 b/c there was only so much of a story a show can tell. I hope that One Tree Hill only goes on if there is actually a story line otherwise I hope it ends this season with an excellent bang and be remembered as a show that was great not a show that wore out its welcome.
