The Sun Setting on The O.C.

The Sun Setting on The O.C.

It all started with “Welcome to the O.C., bitch” but how will it end. 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.

“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.” 

I’m really sad to say goodbye to The O.C., especially in light of its creative resurgence this season. Seth, Summer, Ryan, Sandy, Kirsten, Julie…hell even Marissa hold a special place for me in my TV heart. Thanks to everyone involved with the show for such a great run.

GMMR will hold a fitting tribute to The O.C. prior to it’s final show. We need to say a proper goodbye to Captain Oats, don’t we?
But, it ain’t over yet.  All-original episodes of The O.C. will be airing from Thursday, Jan. 4 through the last episode on Feb. 22.

And on this week’s episode, look for Pop/R&B teen sensation Chris Brown to make his mark in Newport. Brown, in a multi-episode arc will play WILL TUTT, a lonely band geek at The Harbor School who befriends Kaitlin Cooper. As their friendship grows, a possible romance blossoms in the O.C.

    I’m sad… I stuck it out through last year, and was really enjoying this new season. Marissa’s death was a much needed change of direction for the show.

    There has been some question as to whether or not the CW would pick the OC up instead of Fox… I guess this means no? or was this never even an option?

    it’s too bad how the oc got treated this year. it brought the fox some fans and then they just kicked it to the curb.

    atleast they will have a proper goodbye and they’re letting the show come to an end instead of just pulling it during the middle of the season.

    i’m sad… i really am 🙁

    I’m sad. I’m mad. I’m so, so, so SMAD!

    The OC has been with me throughout my college years. It is so heartbreaking to think that it won’t finish with me.

    Plus, I’m angry that FOX is letting go of The OC. This season has definitely peaked over the last. It has gained the much needed revision and new direction that last season didn’t have. How can they just call it quits, when so many fans were getting back into it.


    What makes it worse for me is that the finale is two days after my birthday…talk about looming b-day clouds.

    This is terrible! After getting over a bumpy season three, this year has been a return to the OC we all know and love. There are so many possible story lines left, especially now with Caitlin and the amazing Taylor as cast regulars. And you can’t tell me that Julie Cooper-Nichol-Cooper-Roberts is done with her plotting and scheming!
    I blame the FOX network for putting the show against the #1 program on tv and waiting to start the season in November. Why not try adjusting the time slot before giving the axe?
    We will all miss the characters, drama, and witty comedy Josh Shwartz’s Newport had to offer!

    Probably safe to end it now before they revert back to it’s former suckiness. I will miss it terribly, though. They should have killed Marissa and casted Autumn Reeser sooner!

    RIP, bitch!
    You Will Be Remembered Fondly

    So… It is a little bittersweet to lose the show. On the one hand it is a fairly fun show to delve into the drama of high school (and now post-high school) on a weekly basis w. extreamly attractive people. So for that I will be sad. BUT at the same time… I feel like I may finally have a chance at regaining my testicles and going back to watching real manly shows like Greys Anatomy and Desperate Housewives

    There is a reason it was canceled:

    It was canceled for really bad ratings because it is not a good show.

    Maybe it once was, but it certainly isn’t now.

    I wish there was a way to link Seasons 1 and 4 into one beautiful season…with Marissa’s death thrown in the middle…

    But I’m also glad to see it go out on top. I wish Alias had done the same.

    I feel sad that it’s ending, especially now that Fox hasn’t really done much to help the show out lately, but… Chris Brown? Seriously?
    The good thing about OC ending is that I’ll finally be spared of all these crappy guest stars.

    It figures that just as soon as I get attatched to The O.C. yet again, it gets cancelled. If it had been shown the door last year, I can’t say I would have complained too much, but for it to get the axe at such a creative high point (besides the “Ryan’s Father” soap opera storyline, and Chris Brown) is just heartbreaking…

    I’ll miss Seth’s witty charm, Sandy’s eyebrows, Ryan’s well-rounded character, & the four best female characters on TV: Julie, Summer, Taylor & Caitlyn.
