After nine seasons on the air, One Tree Hill is coming to an end. That much was already known when The CW renewed the series for a final season last year. Now the network has announced that the show's final episode will air next month, on Wednesday, April 4, 2012.
The series will conclude on the aforementioned date with a special two-hour finale "event" from 8:00-10:00pm, which will include interviews with some of the show's stars as they reminisce over their favorite memories.
One Tree Hill began its run on September 23, 2003 on The WB Network, where it aired for three years before being carried over to The CW when The WB merged with UPN in 2006. The show ends after producing a total of 187 episodes.
