One Tree Hill Canadian Sources Provide Date, Cost, Artwork, Extras for ‘The Complete 8th Season

The 5-DVD set will be available just days before Christmas!

    Hope, heartbreak and a hurricane – all in One Tree Hill’s Season 8. So many plans glow with happiness in these 22 Episodes on 5 Discs packed with all the drama that makes Hill fans want to share every minute. Nathan begins an exciting new career. Haley joyfully awaits the arrival of Jamie’s little sister. Brooke and Julian invite all their friends to a wonderful wedding – and Skills makes sure this Tree Hill hitching goes off without a hitch. But darkness mingles with the light. After last season’s shooting, Quinn and Clay fight for their lives. A financial scandal sends someone to prison. And in an all-time-great episode, a ferocious storm pits loved characters in a thrilling life-and-death struggle against a raging river.

We told you last April that One Tree Hill – The Complete 8th Season on DVD hadn’t been announced by the studio, but still it was up for pre-order at Amazon.com! After months of no word from the studio, the other week we let fans know that we weren’t expecting that title to hit stores until December or January, due to the “mid-season” (January) broadcast debut plans for the show’s 9th (and final) season.

While the studio’s U.S.A. team hasn’t announced the title so far, today we received information from our retailer friends north-of-the-border about how Warner Home Video of Canada has begun soliciting One Tree Hill – The Complete 8th Season on DVD, with a release date provided of December 20th. Cost is CA$74.98 SRP (which makes Amazon.com’s listing sound correct with its US$59.98 SRP). That gets you a 5-disc set running 924 minutes, with widescreen video and English 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound for the audio. Subtitles include English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, and there’s also closed captioning as well. Plus bonus material: Featurettes “New to Camp One Tree Hill“, “The Directors’ Debut, Part II” and “Spring Break”. There will also be 2 Audio Commentaries, Unaired Scenes and a Gag Reel.

While at a CBS/CW event for the Television Critics Association summer TV press tour, CW President Mark Pedowitz confirmed to me that this would, indeed, be the final season of “One Tree Hill.”

That, of course, had been announced back in May when the network unveiled its new season, but “One Tree Hill” has a reputation for cheating death, so I was just making sure.

What was less clear back in May was how long this ninth and final season would be. The show got a 13 episode pickup, but many fans have wondered if the season could grow by a few more episodes.

That’s certainly not the plan, Pedowitz said. “Today, it is 13 episodes.”

It’s always possible, I suppose, that if the network feels the need to suddenly bump up “One Tree Hill,” now scheduled for a midseason bow around January or so, to earlier in the season to plug a sudden schedule hole, it’s possible the net could ask for more episodes. But the reality of filming (“One Tree Hill” will wrap by November, which means its final scripts would be in a few weeks before that) makes that possibility highly, highly unlikely.  And again, this is just me spit-balling here. Pedowitz stood firm on the 13-episodes plan.

Pedowitz, who took over the network reins from Dawn Ostroff, said he knew about the show’s strong fan following long before he took over at the CW.

And though “One Tree Hill’s” eighth season finale could have served as a series ender, Pedowitz said he wanted to give one last gift to the show’s passionate fans.

“We felt it would be really good for the viewers to have (another season),” Pedowitz said. “It’s a good show. The viewers loved it. So we thought we’d keep it going. The fans are very fervent about it, so we felt it was a great treat for them.”

For Britta and Ryan Gagner, “One Tree Hill” means true love.

The Wisconsin couple, married one year last month, said the show helped bring them together.

Britta and Ryan, both 30, had been friends for several years before they began dating in 2007. During the time that the spark between them was flickering, they would often fall asleep on her parents’ couch watching “One Tree Hill” together.

On June 15, 2010, they got married in Wrightsville Beach because they’d seen the area on the show. This week they’re back in town celebrating their one-year anniversary.

And how are they marking the occasion? By working a 12-hour shift Tuesday as extras on the set.

“We specifically came this week because we knew that’s when they started filming,” Britta said. “I like to do out-of-the-box things, and he goes along for the ride.”

While Ryan is a big basketball fan and seems to love the show just as much as his wife based on its athletic story line alone, he may have an ulterior motive.
