Quote:Maybe, Autumn Reeser will wind up with something else that showcases her talents! (And a small part of me is still wistfully hoping that if (hah, if!) Veronica Mars is canceled, Jason Dohring and Autumn will wind up on a show together. Hey, I can dream!
We’ve been hearing this for many months now (perhaps longer) but word on the street is that Fox has "officially" pulled the plug on The O.C. in its fourth (and final) season. Big surprise because just yesterday, the pilot pickup season kicked off and a spy dramedy from The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz was given the green light by NBC. Josh, 30, will be delivering a high-concept action dramedy about spies (in the vein of Grosse Pointe Blank) called Chuck.
Josh will also be executive producing The Gossip Girl, which is supposedly going to be picked up by the CW. He’s going to be a busy guy, that Josh. But without The O.C. on his plate. At this point, we can only wish for great acting gigs for the cast. All of them.
ETA: Exec producer Josh Schwartz released a quote on the cancellation.
"THE O.C. Season Four finale will also be the series finale. This feels like the best time to bring the show to its close," said Josh Schwartz, creator and executive producer of THE O.C. "Thanks to the hard work of our cast, crew and writers, we have enjoyed our best season yet, and what better time to go out than creatively on top. It has been an amazing experience and a great run. For a certain audience, at a certain time, THE O.C. has meant something. For that we are grateful."
