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.
