Rachel Bilson is "open" to a revival of The OC and we're hoping and praying the others are on board.

The teen drama was one of our all-time favourite shows to watch on TV, so that's why we're pretty excited about Rachel saying she's open to taking on her role as Summer again.

Speaking to E! News, the actress said: "I'm always open to things. I don't know what it would look like with our characters being old now.

"We were riding skateboards on the pier; I don't know what they do now as 30-year-olds.

"But it would be nice to see everyone again," she finished.

We don't know about you, but we would love to see what Summer and Seth are doing ten years on.

When asked what she thinks the love birds are up to, Rachel said: "People always ask me that and I'm like, 'What was she doing when we ended?' I can't even remember; it was so long ago.

"I'm sure she has kids with Seth. I don't know! She's on the beach."

She added: "It's really nice that people loved the show so much and embraced it. I'm still so grateful to this day for the opportunity and to have been a part of something like that."



The ravages of time can be a cruel mistress for the Hollywood starlets desperately trying to preserve their youthful exuberance. 

Still, it seems that Rachel Bilson – FOREVER Summer Roberts to us – isn't a mere mortal.

That's because, and close-to a decade after the The OC wrapped up (we're still not over it) she looks the exact same.

Indeed, while hitting a chic Target fashion event in New York with BFF and wife of Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan, Rachel looked all sorts of totally gorge. 

Although the actress, now 34, maintains that she's decidedly low-key when it comes to a beauty routine since the birth of her daughter 18months ago.

Chatting to Allure magazine recently, she said: “In my own life, it’s a little bit of mascara, a little Chapstick, and I’m ready to go. 

“Maybe I’ll add a little eyeliner in there to spice things up. Maybe a little bronzer.”

She added that her daughter, whom she and her long-term actor partner Hayden Christensen, 35, named Briar Rose, doesn't even recognise her is she's sporting a lot of slap.

“If I ever have anything on – like if I have mascara on – my daughter just stares at me for, like, five minutes: ‘Who are you?’ Ms Bilson laughed.



We all remember him as Sandy in The OC, and now Peter Gallagher is taking on another big role.

The actor has been cast to star in the TV remake of Cruel Intentions and he will play the father of Ryan Phillippe's late character.

If you want to know NOTHING about the remake, stop reading now – but if not, go ahead. Peter is set to play Edward Valmont, a sexy, powerful and ruthless billionaire who owns a string of hotels.

He's into some sketchy business – some legal, and some not so much – but when he finds out he has a grandson, he's determined to show him what impossible wealth can do.

Since Sandy was such a nice guy, it'll be hard to see Peter playing a 'baddie'. But one thing's for sure, this remake is looking to be very, very good. 


The cast and crew of Friday Night Lights will come together once again this June for a special reunion hosted by the 2016 ATX Television Festival, it has been announced. 

The Panther Field reunion will take place in a massive football field in Texas (appropriate) and will feature a pep rally and live music throughout the day. 

BUT, no one has been announced as attending yet so, you never know; it could end up being a full cast reunion OR there'll be a bunch of random people who we're kinda in the show like Becky's dad.

And anyway, in more reunion news, the TV festival is also planning a writers' room reunion with The O.C. (*screams*) creator Josh Schwartz.

A special reading of the pilot episode has been planned but again, no one knows who will show up just yet.

We're hoping Seth turns up and is just as geeky and cute (and hot) as he was before.



It's certainly been a busy day for the cast of Californian teen drama The O.C.

Literally minutes after we discovered that Adam Brody had welcomed a baby with wife Leighton Meester, we were treated to yet more O.C.-themed baby news.

Ben McKenzie is also set to become a dad… but not quite as soon as his former co-star. The actor is expecting his first child with girlfriend and fellow Gotham star Morenna Baccarin, with the baby due early next year.

Morenna's rep confirmed the news today, though signs of a gently blossoming baby bump were visible under her dress at the Emmys this past weekend.

Ben and Morenna looked every bit the glam Hollywood couple as they walked the red carpet together – and we're loving that scarlet Reem Acra gown.

Brazilian beauty Morenna was previously married to TV producer Austin Chick, with whom she has a one-year-old son named Julius.

Although they only met for the first time on the set of Gotham last year, Ben discovered soon after that he and Morenna had in fact been co-stars before… during his days on The OC.

Speaking around the time the couple first met, Ben told The Daily Beast that he had no recollection of the short-lived previous work together.

"They just hired Morena Baccarin on Gotham to play my love interest, Dr. Leslie Thompkins, and she said, ‘Hey, I did an episode of The O.C.!’ and I was like, ‘What!?’” he admitted.

We're glad to see they know each other a little better now!


The OC may have ended in 2007 but fans can snap up a slice of nostalgia in California… once they have a few million to spare.

The iconic Italian-style villa which houses Seth Cohen and Ryan Atwood in the hit teen drama is up for sale for $6.25m (€5.5m). 

However we were disappointed to hear that not only is the inside of the house totally different to what we saw on screen, but the house itself isn't even located in Newport Beach.

Nope, it's in Malibu, an hour and a half away.

While the exterior of the house looks exactly as we remember (that porch holds many memories), the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom mansion definitely doesn't have any of the other features we associated with Seth and Ryan.

First up, there's no poolhouse, so where's bad boy Ryan gonna get his privacy?

Secondly, as the house is set on four acres of parkland it seems very unlikely that Marissa Cooper lives right next door. Boo.

If you do have the funds to shell out on this fine piece of Californian real estate though, you won't be left disappointed.

As well as ample bedroom space, the house boasts a chef's kitchen, a library, a sunroom, a spa, a formal dining area, and an INCREDIBLE pool. 

That's it, we're moving to Malibu.


Everyone's favourite teenage television show turns 12 this week. Yep, it's been a full 12 years since Ryan got thrown into jail, Seth became a stoner, Summer became an environmentalist and Marissa gave us all wardrobe envy.

Ah, memories!

There was a lot of drama on the show (we won't even mention the final season) but it was always there to entertain us. And yes, maybe we felt like we were kinda part of their squad too.

To mark the occasion, we look at the main characters and what they're up to now.

Mischa Barton played Marissa Cooper on the teen drama, and she definitely had her fair share of ups and (many) downs but we couldn't help but love her on-off romance with Ryan.

Ultimately, however, her (#spoileralert) untimely death shocked audiences. And let's face it, the show was NEVER the same after Mischa's departure.

Ms Barton has also been apart of almost as much drama in real life: in 2007 she was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs and then just last year she got entangled in a major legal battle with her own mother. Barton decided to sue her mum for allegedly taking her money and kicking her out of her own home. 

Talk about drama!


Ben McKenzie played hunk Ryan Atwood (swoon) on the show, and he stole the hearts of many females around the world. Although, and while he was also often the OC hero, he still had his fair share of troubles (thanks, Marissa).

Nowadays, we're happy to report that Mr McKenzie has returned to our TV screens: he has adopted the role of James Gordon on the show Gotham.

Still, Ben is a Hollywood actor who likes to keep his life private away from the cameras. In saying that, we can confirm that he is currently single (so yes, we're all still in with a chance!).


Adam Brody played Seth Cohan on the show and made us adore him with his quirky attitude and cute moments with Summer. Since the show ended, Mr Brody has kept himself busy with a film career in lieu of small-screen success.

And although he's yet to star in a major role, the world went crazy when it emerged that he and Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester were dating. Now they're married – tying the knot in a cosy private ceremony in February of last year.


Rachel Bilson played pint-sized stunner Summer Roberts on the teen drama and turned from superficial princess to crazy environmentalist in just one season.

In 2011, Ms Bilson was cast as the main character in TV show Hart Of Dixie but it was then cancelled in May of this year.

She started dating Star Wars actor Hayden Christensen in 2007 and after a very much on-off relationship the couple ended up having a baby girl, Briar Rose late last year.


Praise the musical gods!

Not only are we being gifted with the news that a Clueless musical is in the works, now one of our most favourite TV shows of all time is having a musical adaptation.

Creator of Cruel Intentions: The Musical are developing a new take on the hit Fox teen drama The O.C. There’s even a Twitter account for the new musical.

We can hardly contain our excitement. Christmukkah has come early for all the of the shows many, many loyal fans.

Director Lindsey Rosin and producer Jordan Ross shared a snap of the score on Friday with the lyrics to the song Paint the Silence. Die hard Ryan/Marissa fans will remember that song was playing during an oh-so important moment for the pair.

The series ran for 4 seasons from 2003-2007 (although to be fair most Marissa fans ignore season 4 entirely).

There’s no word as of yet who has been cast to play either Ryan (originally played by Ben McKenzie) or Marissa (Mischa Barton). A few of the other favourites have been cast though. Drew Sheely will appear as Luke “welcome to the O.C b***h” Ward and Christine Lakin will be Kirsten Cohen.

‘What about Seth and Summer?’ you cry. Or even Princess Sparkles and the famous daring Captain Oats? We’ll just have to wait and see, unfortunately.

The O.C: The Musical will begin its run at the end of August this year, it hasn’t yet been announced where though. Is it too much to hope that Dublin might be a worthy spot for the new show?

We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed and indulging in some marathon re-watches in the meantime. And yes we will be practicing all of the words to the theme song while we’re at it.



It sounds like it is all over for Entourage actress Autumn Reeser and her husband, as TMZ report she has filed for divorce.

Autumn, who also starred in The OC, married Jesse Warren Strutzel five years ago and the couple have two sons together, Finneus (3) and Dashiell, who will be one-year-old tomorrow.

According to TMZ, Autumn wishes to share custody of their two sons, but does not want to pay her future ex-husband any spousal support.

Autumn recently had a mini-OC reunion with her co-star Rachel Bilson on the final episode of Hart of Dixie, which we were super excited about! 

Rachel has since given birth to a baby daughter, Briar Rose, with her partner Hayden Christensen. 




Rachel Bilson and Autumn Reeser had a mini reunion of The OC and it was the cutest thing ever!

Autumn, who played Taylor Townshend in the teen drama, shared a photo of herself and Rachel Bilson to her WhoSay account.

Rachel, who is visibly pregnant in the sweet snap, is expecting her first child with partner Hayden Christensen soon.

Autumn is joining the cast of Rachel’s current TV show, Hart of Dixie and captioned the photo: “Love this girl, such a pleasure to work w/ her again!! A mini #OC reunion on the finale ep of @CWHart of Dixie.”



Mischa Barton broke our hearts today, when she admitted that if given the choice again, she would "probably not" have starred in the hit show, The O.C.

What?! The actress said she was skeptical from the start when it came to starring in the hit teen drama.

"It's something I came so close to not doing. I had a really great thing with film. People say be grateful for what you have but it certainly not the kind of thing I was expecting it to be. I've kind of seen it all”

Mischa didn’t have an easy time after leaving the show though. She was arrested for DUI in 2007 and in 2009, the actress was admitted into a psych ward after she threatened to take her own life.

But Mischa says she doesn’t care about how she’s perceived in the media, but admitted that the pressure fame placed on her, was difficult.

"It's really tough when you are young in this business. People blow a lot of hot air at you. That's the main thing. Keep your head on your shoulders—even when you think your head is on your shoulders, sometimes it isn't. It's just one of those things when you are growing under a microscope and changing and that evolution is human. That humanity aspect means flaws—which people don't want to see."

We guess that makes sense, but you will always be Marissa Cooper to us Mischa!




Rachel captivated us all while playing Summer Roberts in The O.C and currently stars as Dr Zoe Hart in Hart of Dixie.

The actress’ style mirrors her bright and bubbly personality, as she loves wearing bright colours and always looks so cute.

This relaxed maxi skirt paired with a plain black t-shirt is so simple but stylish and we love the red dress – so slinky and sexy.

We really want to get our hands on a tuxedo jumpsuit and we also love how feminine that final dress is, especially with the gorgeous shoulder detail.

Keep up the good work, Rachel!
