One Tree Hill One Tree Hill

Get ready for another One Tree Hill time jump.

"There is a really cool device in the finale ... where we're jumping through months," star Austin Nichols says. The episode will fast-forward through time, rather than make fans wait an entire hiatus like they've done in the past.

The CW show moved ahead four years between Seasons 4 and 5 in order to skip over the college years and avoid having to send the Tree Hill gang to some local college, à la Beverly Hills, 90210.

So does this type of finale signal the end of the series? With no pick-up yet, Nichols says, "If it [is] in fact a series finale, it will be very satisfying." Still, the actor is hopeful. "I know that there are seeds planted if there's going to be another season," he says. "Everybody feels lucky to be a part of something that's been on so long, so we'll see."
