Onetreehillwedding_l It looks like One Tree Hill newlyweds Peyton and Lucas are about to embark on a permanent honeymoon. Sources confirm that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton, whose characters tied the knot in last night’s penultimate episode, will not be returning for the show’s seventh season next fall. The CW is expected to formally announce their departures next Thursday at its upfront presentation.  Murray and Burton have been engaged in rather high-profile contract negotiations for the past several months. Ultimately, a deal couldn’t be worked out and both actors will make their final appearances in next Monday’s season finale. To fill the void next season, a Hill insider tells me that two new characters will be introduced. Additionally, Austin Nichols (Julian) is being promoted to a series regular. What say you, Tree Hill fans? Pumped for OTH 2.0? Too upset to even think about it? Let loose in the comments section.

    I think its ridiculous that hilarie and chad are not returning. I understand they wanted more money, but, this is where they got their start. How about doing it for the fans? we all know theyre making ungodly amounts of money already. GREEDY
    If it wasnt for the one tree hill fans the show wouldnt be anything. some actors seem to forget that.
    I think those two are greedy, selfious, and completely full of themselves.

    I think it’s stupid that LEYTON isn’t coming back. And the way they left the show is pretty stupid! Who just takes off in a car ride?!

    I think it’s Chad’s fault though. They should’ve at least said where they were going!?

    I was so excited for the new season to begin, but when i realized that Peyton, Lucas and baby sawyer were not returning i was extremely disappointed. The show is ruined now!!! I have not missed a single episode in the last six seasons, but now I’m not so sure I’m going to continue to watch it. I hope they realize this was a bad move and put them back on the show.

    I was sad when I realized that Peyton & Lucas were not returning. They were a big part of why I watched the show. However I continue to watch the show because its a great show with a great cast.

    I was saddened when I noticed “Peyton” & “Lucas” weren’t returning to the show but I assumed it was just temporary. I can say it’s not the same without them. I will continue to watch the show every monday as I have the past 6 years (and yes I have a life outside OTH lol). But as I said before, it’s just not the same. It would be great if they had a better reason for not being on there other than “extended honeymoon”. At least bring them back for an episode…maybe to say “hey guys were back but we’re moving out of OTH”. At least then there’d be a reason for them not returning & we (the fans) would get a chance to say goodbye. Plus it would add to the storyline & bring back a lot of “LEYTON” fans!
