LA - 1/03/07 - The sun will set for the last time on THE O.C. when the series ends its four-season run Thursday, Feb. 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The countdown has begun, with all-original episodes airing from Thursday, Jan. 4 through the last episode on Feb. 22.
THE O.C. stars Peter Gallagher (Sandy Cohen), Kelly Rowan (Kirsten Cohen), Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan Atwood), Adam Brody (Seth Cohen), Melinda Clarke (Julie Cooper), Rachel Bilson (Summer Roberts), Autumn Reeser (Taylor Townsend) and Willa Holland (Kaitlin Cooper).
Set in Orange County, California, THE O.C. premiered in August 2003. It follows a group of friends and families whose lives were changed by the arrival of an outsider - Ryan Atwood - to their ocean-side community of Newport Beach.
THE O.C. revived the teen drama genre while including humorous and heartfelt adult storylines. Shortly after its summer premiere, THE O.C. was a pop culture phenomenon - its actors are household names and its indie music (and subsequent six soundtracks) and hip California wardrobe are sought-after in stores. The show's Newport Beach locale also has become a popular tourist attraction as fans visit the real locations featured in their favorite episodes.
"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."
From Wonderland Sound and Vision and College Hill Pictures and in association with Warner Bros. Television Production, THE O.C. is executive-produced by Josh Schwartz, Bob DeLaurentis, Stephanie Savage and McG. Ian Toynton and John Stevens are co-executive producers.
Either that or she definately hangs out with Seth too much. During the 1/04/07 episode, Summer uses "frak" to describe the situation.
OK, obviously it is the writers that have been watching too much Battlestar Galactica. Hey, at least it is a good way to get around using "f**k."
Welcome to THE O.C. - Orange County, California - where the lives of a Newport Beach community have been altered forever by the arrival of an outsider who shook up their world.
When the series returns for season four, high school seems like a distant memory to the young graduates, who have been thrust into adulthood after the heartbreaking death of their beloved friend MARISSA (Mischa Barton).
Who heads to college to try to put the past behind them? Who stays in town because they can't let the past go? Will VOLCHOK (Cam Gigandet) go free for causing the tragic accident that killed Marissa? Or will RYAN (Ben McKenzie) decide that the way to heal is through revenge?
It's a battle for Ryan's soul as the Cohens struggle to keep him focused on the future, fighting the forces that threaten to pull him back into his old life. SANDY (Peter Gallagher) returns to the Public Defender's office, and he and KIRSTEN (Kelly Rowan) find themselves reaching out to another troubled teen, but this one is not a stranger. It's KAITLIN COOPER (Willa Holland), the number-one troublemaker at The Harbor School, and too much to handle for her mother JULIE (Melinda Clarke), who's off making some trouble of her own. The person most excited about leaving high school finds himself back there - as a teacher. And new cast member TAYLOR TOWNSEND (Autumn Reeser) finds herself with some unlikely new roommates - and family members.
As much as the arrival of Ryan has changed the lives of this community, so, too, has the loss of Marissa. This season hits the ground running with THE O.C.'s trademark mix of heart, humor, drama, action and romance. It's a new day on THE O.C. ...
From Wonderland Sound and Vision and College Hill Pictures, and in association with Warner Bros. Television Production Inc., THE O.C. is executive-produced by Josh Schwartz, Bob DeLaurentis, McG and Stephanie Savage. John Stephens and Ian Toynton serves as co-executive producers.
