Rachel Bilson's 'O.C.' Reunion Talk Makes Us Wonder What the Kids Would Be Doing Now

Rachel Bilson gave all teen drama fans out there reason to hope when she told Us Weekly that she would be open to an The O.C. reunion. "If everyone did it, I'm sure it would be fun," she said. At least she's not letting the awkwardness of potentially working with real life ex-boyfriend and co-star Adam Brody get in the way. Unfortunately, Brody, along with stars Ben McKenzie and Mischa Barton, have all been much less enthusiastic about a reunion. Still, we can dream right? Here's what we think Ryan, Seth, Summer and some of our other favorite characters would be up to today.

There's Hope!

Rachel Bilson gave all teen drama fans out there reason to hope when she told Us Weekly that she would be open to an The O.C. reunion. "If everyone did it, I'm sure it would be fun," she said. At least she's not letting the awkwardness of potentially working with real life ex-boyfriend and co-star Adam Brody get in the way. Unfortunately, Brody, along with stars Ben McKenzie and Mischa Barton, have all been much less enthusiastic about a reunion. Still, we can dream right? Here's what we think Ryan, Seth, Summer and some of our other favorite characters would be up to today.

Summer Roberts

Actually, that should probably say Summer Cohen, since those amazing final minutes of The O.C. finale showed Summer marrying the world's best boyfriend/husband, Seth. By now the two probably have beautiful children with great hair. After realizing completely out of the blue in Season 4 that her passion is the environment, she's probably still working as an activist in some way, saving the Earth in gorgeous designer outfits.

Seth Cohen

Oh, Seth. As previously mentioned, he married Summer at the end of the series finale, the only acceptable match for him besides me (which is probably what any girl who ever watched The O.C. believed). Anyway, after getting into the Rhode Island School of Design thanks to his "Atomic County" comic book, Seth probably became a comic book writer/artist. Maybe he also turned Chrismukkah into the national holiday it was always destined to become.

Ryan Atwood

Poor Ryan. He had a lot of stuff to work through, such as being abandoned by his alcoholic mother, watching his girlfriend shoot his brother, watching that same girlfriend die, dating Taylor Townsend and ... becoming a cage fighter? The third and fourth seasons got pretty strange. Luckily, by the series finale, Ryan was back on track and able to fulfill his dream of becoming an architect. He probably picked up right where the flash-foward left off, helping out a struggling kid the way Sandy Cohen helped him. But he and Taylor fizzled out, or so we can hope. Whatever nice Berkley girl he ended up with, no matter how happy they may be, we know Ryan would still be full of angst.

Marissa Cooper (R.I.P.)

This is an easy one: she's still dead. It's strange that Mischa Barton once told MTV News that she would consider an O.C. reunion, but didn't think anyone would ever do it. Um, hey Mischa? You died, remember? You asked to be written off the show to pursue a movie career. How's that going, by the way?

Sandy & Kirsten Cohen

When The O.C. ended, Sandy got just what he's always wanted: the hell out of the O.C. The couple moved back to Berkley, where they met, to raise the newest addition to the family, daughter Sophie. He's also shown to be a law professor, which is basically the perfect job for him and he would definitely still be doing. Hopefully by now Kristen would've figured out what she actually likes to do, since her father's business is behind her. Maybe she put all that fundraising experience to use and became an event planner.
