Lionsgate TV said in a statement after looking into the accusations:

"We have concluded our investigation and Mark will not be returning to The Royals. The fourth season of the show has already completed production and will air as scheduled on E! in the spring."

As stated, season four will not be affected as it is already complete — and it's yet to be announced if the Elizabeth Hurley drama will be back for a fifth season. We'll keep you posted.

Good riddance! Can Donald Trump be next???

25 Female Cast & Crew Members On The Royals Accuse Creator Mark Schwahn Of Sexual Harassment — & Elizabeth Hurley Apparently Had NO IDEA!

no title

The ladies of The Royals know far too well what the ladies of One Three Hill went through under showrunner Mark Schwahn.

Earlier this week, Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton, Bethany Joy Lenz and more female cast and crew members of One Tree Hill released a letter accusing Schwahn of sexual misconduct during the hit show.

After OTH ended in 2012, Schwahn went on to create the hit E! series The Royals – and apparently, the inappropriate behavior came with him across the pond.

Hours after E! announced Schwahn was suspended from the political drama amid a sexual harassment investigation, series star Alexandra Park issued a statement saying that she too has "been exposed to this reprehensible behavior." She's not the only one, either.

In a statement signed by 25 female cast and crew members from The Royals, the women who worked on the show say Schwahn engaged in "repeated unwanted sexual harassment of multiple female members of cast and crew."

Wow. Was there any female colleague Schwahn didn't make uncomfortable over the years? As it turns out, at least one: Elizabeth Hurley.

The Ladies of One Tree Hill are sticking together.

In case you missed it, over the weekend, the scriptwriter took to Twitter to detail the sexual harassment she and her writing partner, Rachel Specter, suffered while working with Schwahn on OTH. While Wauchope never specifically named Mark in her accusation on Twitter, it was later confirmed that she was speaking about the industry vet.

Bush and company have admitted to knowing of Schwahn's unsavory behavior as they noted in their statement to Variety:

Lucas & Peyton To Return To One Tree Hill?!

Filed under: TV News

chad michael murray one tree hill return with hilarie burton

Because lets face it, they really just should!

With One Tree Hill officially getting a full season pick up, there's a lot of talk of original stars Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton returning. Now, before you get too excited, let's be clear that nothing is solid yet. However, there are rumors that the whole Scott family (remember they have a baby!) will return for the two-part wedding episode that was part of the original season order.

However, with six additional episodes tacked on and a possible end in sight for the show, perhaps their visit could be later! Thoughts Mark Schwahn, show creator?

"If schedules don't work [for Brooke's wedding], maybe we'll bring back Chad and Hilarie at a later date," he said. "If we get a full season maybe at the end of the journey, but those two characters are a big part of this world. We've talked about it, and there seems to be interest from all sides."

We surely hope that means Chad and Hilarie's side. We imagine they would be the only thing standing in the way of their own return.

We hope they have a bit of loyalty to the show and come back.

Do U?
