Chad Michael Murray Axed From One Tree Hill

Costars Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton, who tied the knot during last night’s episode of One Tree Hill, will not be returning for the show’s seventh season, EW confirms.

Translation: The CW could not afford to keep newlyweds Peyton and Lucas on their payroll.

Two new characters will be introduced next season and Jake Gyllenhaal‘s BFF Austin Nichols (Julian) will become a series regular.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of CMM and HB leaving OTH?

    They WANTED to leave ! It’s been like 2 years that Chad claimed he wanted Lucas to die hit by a bus or something ! He said 2 years ago at Monte Carlo Festival that he wished season 4 was the last, and that he wanted to do something else ! Plus, the show is not only about them. They wanted to leave. Both of them.

    I’m so sad….One Tree Hill won’t ever be the same! :( Maybe they completed their journey as characters and as a tv show couple. Good Luck to both of them! :)

    i still can’t believe..the show will be stupid without two main characters…I mean, come on, like the two of them and Brooke aren’t the best ones in the show?

    I could care less about Lucas leaving, he’s so annoying. And the only downside of P. leaving is that there won’t be any Brooke-Peyton scenes anymore. But I’m really happy that Julian is becoming a series regular!

    Okay of course it’s not gonna be the same without them, but my favorite caracters have always been Haley and Brooke, and I’m glad there’s even gonna be a season 7! I love One Tree Hill:)

    Lucas and Peyton are “the” main characters… I dont know how everybody else would see that but i always watched it because of them. its kind of sad that they leaving, and i guess the next season will be the last when the two were leaving.

    Samantha Says:

    I’m totally devastated :(( this show will never EVER be the same without them! Yes, there are other main characters, I know, but let’s face it: LP were THE main characters throughout the show. Nobody else got so much screentime like they did, simply because they are the heart of the show! It’s like you rip out chuck and blair or any other main couple from a show! It’ll never be the same and instead of just ending this show gracefully, they make them disappear! I’m seriously disappointed!!! :(

    This is sad. I really dont see any point on bringing the show back if they’re leaving. I mean I’ll still watch it, but it wont be the same without them. We’ll just have to wait and see how it goes. I am happy that Julian is series regular though. I love him!

    I think One tree hill can keep without them. it’s sad but it’s going to be a great season. Sophia bush stills there!!

    I’m totally cool with this. I think Lucas turned into a major whiner this season. The other story lines were way more interesting and the Brooke character should be the main character. She’s more dynamic and a better actor. I will miss some of the Peyton stuff, but I definitely won’t miss Lucas and his whining. I feel like they were phasing him out this season anyway. I’m super excited that Julian will become a regular. I love that character. I hope he and Brooke become the main focus next season.

    djl Says:

    they probably will end up canceling the show when they realize all the other character’s (except Brooke) are boring!
    and can somebody do something about all the lip synching on this show!? it’s not even close to looking real.

    It’s going to be a little weird without the two main characters, but I’m happy with Austin Nichols becoming a regular.

    They are my two favorite characters on the show. That really sucks that they wont be on next season but I’m sure they want to do something different.

    Sad that they’re leaving. and btw i love sophia, bethany and james and the rest of the cast but i think that they might be kinda happy ;p they’ll get more screentime ;d brooke and julian will become the main couple ;p and we will get to see more naley ;d

    Jane Says:

    Sooo happy. Chad has been saying for ages that he wants to leave… He’s gotten to be a real pain in the ass, and so has Lucas. I wouldn’t mind if Peyton stayed, but I won’t miss her either. I’m just happy Julian is a regular now!! Hopefully the show will focus more on Brooke, Haley, and Nathan (and Julian, but particularly the other 3). This season spent so much time on secondary characters, the core characters hardly had storylines. If the writers go back to the characters who have been on the show since the beginning (minus Lucas and Peyton, obviously), I think season 7 will do just fine… If not, I don’t think it will.
