Although, it's not much of a surprise.
It was recently announced that CW's One Tree Hill will be returning for its ninth season next year for 13 episodes.
Producer Dawn Ostroff confirmed that it will be the show's final 13 episodes and it will not be returning after its ninth season.
And looks like they'll be pulling out all the stops. CW will attempt to lure former stars Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton for the show's final episodes.
We hope they decide to come back. It'll be a great way to say goodbye to the long-running series.
