An ABC.com blog entry by series creator Jenny Bicks confirms as much as anything can that Men in Trees' five unaired Season 1 episodes will not see the light of day until the fall, where they will be used to kick off a "more fattening," 2 7-episode sophomore run. Until then, Bicks says, "We will absolutely be on the air starting in June, with reruns all summer," though she is reluctant to hint at a time slot.

Why did Trees not wrap up its freshman run this spring? Bicks says it speaks not at all to the quality of the unseen episodes, but rather "has everything to do with ABC wanting to use Thursday nights to showcase new shows" such as October Road and Notes from the Underbelly.
