One Tree Hill

The Core Five


FullSizeRender (3)

One Tree Hill is a teen/young adult drama series created by Mark Schwahn for The WB. The long-running series premiered on September 23, 2003, and ended on April 4, 2012. The main cast from Season 1-6 (left to right): Lucas, Peyton, Nathan, Haley e Brooke. The series chronicled the lives of five high school friends living in the fictional town of Tree Hill, North Carolina, whose lives collided when Lucas Scott joined his half-brother Nathan's high school basketball team. The initial animosity between the brothers, fueled by the influence of their often regretful parents, sparked a major confrontation which became thrice as fierce when three beautiful girls became further entwined in the brothers' lives. Lucas' best friend Haley James tested her loyalties and slowly started to fall for Nathan after breaking through his bad-boy persona; Peyton Sawyer struggled to choose between her head and her heart when it came to Lucas - even more so when her best friend, party-girl Brooke Davis, finally removed her facade and truly fell for the one-time outsider. All the lives of the five teenagers and their friends collided and drama was certain to follow.


After the series' sixth season, Lucas and Peyton depart Tree Hill and three new regular characters are introduced: Haley's older sister Quinn James, Nathan's agent Clay Evans, and actress Alex Dupre, who was hired by Brooke as the new face of her company. Over the course of the next three seasons, Quinn and Clay's relationship develops as Clay tries to come to terms with the death of his wife, Sara, while Alex causes conflict between Brooke and Julian Baker.

Throughout the nine seasons of One Tree Hill, audiences have been shocked and astounded as they dealt with their high school dramas, and later, faced the pressures of living adult lives.
