Plus, Sophia Bush weighs in on Brooke’s dad’s highly-anticipated arrival! What kind of drama do you think he’ll bring to Tree Hill?
There are a few more familiar faces returning for One Tree Hill‘s ninth, and final, season — plus a few new ones! Warner Bros. has confirmed that, not only will Barbara Alyn Woods reprise her role as Nathan’s (James Lafferty) pill-popping cougar mom Deb for one episode, but Richard Burgi will also recur as Brooke’s (Sophia Bush) oft-discussed-but-never-seen father!
Of course, these might not be the happiest family reunions — and they certainly won’t come without some drama. As Sophia teased during HollywoodLife.com‘s recent trip to One Tree Hill’s Wilmington, N.C., set:
“You’re going to meet someone who’s very relevant to Brooke’s life who you’ve wanted to see for eight years.”
This is obviously huge news for longtime fans of the series, especially those with a soft spot for Brooke… and her daddy issues. Seriously, if you thought Brooke and Victoria (Daphne Zuniga) had a rocky relationship as mother and daughter, just wait until dear ol’ daddy enters the picture.
