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.

“ONE TREE HILL”

Season eight of ONE TREE HILL saw the characters moving away from glamour, fame and wealth and instead dealing with the delicate balance that contemporary twenty-somethings face as they endeavor to build and define what their lives will be. Fashion designer Brooke Davis lost her company but found love with Julian Baker, was married and gave birth to twins. Haley James Scott supported her husband Nathan as he lost his NBA career to an injury, but she also won a personal battle with depression and ultimately gave birth to a daughter to compliment their son Jamie. Nathan’s friend and business partner Clay Evans survived an attack by the psychotic Katie to find love and happiness with Quinn James, who not only survived the same attack, but also vanquished the threat of Katie in a harrowing confrontation. Alex Dupré began a promising singing career and also a promising relationship with Chase Evans, who joined the Air Force and returned with a newfound maturity and perspective. And Millicent Huxtable began a broadcasting career, ultimately launching a morning show with her boyfriend Mouth McFadden.

In season nine, 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 Mouth and Millicent? And what’s to become of Alex and Chase and their burgeoning romance? Following a fictional four year jump in time, “One Tree Hill” has now spent four seasons exploring the experiences of twenty-somethings. Season nine will continue to grow and break new ground, as the show approaches the rarified air of 200 episodes.

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, Greg Prange, Mike Tollin and Brian Robbins. The series is produced by Mastermind Laboratories and Tollin-Robbins Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

I don’t know about the rest of you One Tree Hill fans, but I almost died waiting to find out if the show got picked up for a season 9 and… Woo hoo! It got picked up for 13 episodes! And after seeing how much you guys responded to my inteview with ShantelVanSanten (Quinn), I knew I just had to talk to her partner-in-crime, Robert Buckley. He’s handsome. He’s funny. And damn, he’s responsible for transitioning Clay from a Tree Hill newbie to an amazing character we all came to adore. That’s not exactly easy for an actor!

Rob and I chatted about the tonight’s finale, next season, his friendship with Shantel, rapping and a whole bunch of other awesome stuff. I dare say it was my favorite interview ever. Not only did he have me cracking up the entire time, but he was super charming and gave great answers!

Note: I interviewed Rob literally an hour before the renewal was announced (seriously, an hour!), so you’ll notice that we are still speculating.

Enjoy! And be sure to tune into the season finale tonight at 8 p.m. on The CW!

Also, check back later this week for my interviews with his costars Kate Voegele and Jackson Brundage!

Hi Rob. How are you?

I’m doing well, how about yourself?

Good. Thank you for talking with me today.

Yeah. It’s my pleasure.

So let’s talk about tonight. What can we expect from the season finale?

Hmm, the killer opening sequence followed by the show’s theme song with a new artist, probably some title credits (laughs). No. They’ve got me pretty tight lipped on how much I can give away. But I have to say, I don’t know how much of it is going to be the episode that I know or if they’re going to change the ending to make it more of a series finale.

Right. And we officially don’t know anything yet as of now? Is that right?

Yes exactly. We’ve heard nothing. So, you know, I’m pretty much in the same boat as a lot of the fans. I don’t know, really what is going to be the ending.

Do you think that fans either way will be happy with Clay and Quinn’s ending?

I do.

OK… You really can’t say anything about it, can you? (laughs)

Well (laughs), it’s also very relative. I’m on Twitter now and a lot of our fans are on Twitter as well and I hear what a lot of people want. Like, some people just want to see Clay and Quinn happy. Like, they won’t be happy until Clay and Quinn have a handful of babies. A clan of ‘Clinns’, if you will. You know, I think it’s a bit relative, but overall I was very satisfied with how they wanted to wrap up the season and I’m a big fan of Clay and Quinn, so I think the fans will be happy.

Great. Yeah, I’ve talked to Shantel and she said the same thing.  She also told us that you guys are best friends. Do you have any good Shantel stories to tell us?

Oh my gosh. Let’s see, what’s appropriate for print (laughs). No, no, I’m kidding. We had a really good time. We got thrown into it together obviously. We started in season 7 and it was not just starting a new job, but joining a show that is already successful, seriously, is like going to a new high school senior year. It’s not even like, am I going to find a prom date? It’s like, am I even going to fit in here? And, so her and I were in the same boat, living in Wilmington. So it was kind of like, we’re either going to sink or swim together so we might as well be, you know, pals. And we ended up having a really good time. Hopefully it comes across on the screen, but I think, for example, this season’s gag reel, I just saw the other day and there’s two really good moments in there of the two of us where you can see we’re complete, just goofballs around each other.

Haha. Cool! So, if the show doesn’t get picked up, do you have any plans? Or are you just sort of waiting?

Yeah, I’ll probably be moving back here to my parents’ basement. There’s a futon with my name on it (laughs). No, I don’t right now, because the truth is, my hope is that the show comes back. I have a great time doing it, so I’m really not trying to hedge my bets, I’m just seeing what happens with the show so if it comes back, great. If it doesnt, look and see what’s out there.

It’s OFFICIAL! One Tree Hill Season 9 has been officialy picked up for 13 episodes! More news on it will be coming your way without a doubt but for now don’t forget to watch the Seaosn 8 Finale TONIGHT at the CW!

Sometimes a TV show can be so much more.

If you don’t believe it, just do a quick search of Twitter using the hashtag #OTHS9 and you’ll see that the fan base for “One Tree Hill” is taking the possibility of a ninth season seriously.

And personally.

Among the tweets:

“I pray every day for #OTHS9 because Haley is just my life inspiration! Cannot believe it could be an end…”

“Please renew for a final season #OTHS9 Because After all this years I still love the show like the first day”

“I can’t wait until next thursday to get confirmation on #OTHS9, or what I hope will be confirmation on #OTHS9. #icantwaitanylonger”

Official word about the fate of the long-running Wilmington-made series is expected during The CW network’s annual fall TV programming lineup announcement, also called the “upfronts,” on Thursday. But insider rumblings have already started pointing to a renewal for at least a partial season 9.

The network is staying tight-lipped in the meantime.

“We have no additional pickup news,” CW spokeswoman Cyndee Ellefson said on Wednesday. “Our schedule will be announced next week.”

With the season 8 finale showing at 8 p.m. Tuesday, word about the series’ future is likely to begin circulating at least a couple of days before the upfronts. Reports of creator Mark Schwahn filming several ending scenarios are popping up online.

While many in the industry are hedging their bets on a return of “One Tree Hill,” local film officials say you can never be sure what the networks will do.
