Rachel Bilson Wants An 'O.C.' Reunion, But She's Not Sure How The Show Would Work Today
If you're obsessed with all the ongoing television revival news, you've probably been holding your breath, waiting to see which other early 2000s shows may get a second chance. Go ahead and exhale a little, because, according to a recent interview with E! News, Rachel Bilson wants an O.C. reunion as much as we all do. However, there’s a catch: She's just not quite sure what it would look like.
During the interview, the actor admitted to not keeping close tabs on her old cast mates, but that wouldn’t stand in the way of her potentially signing on to bringing the beloved Summer Roberts back to the small screen. In fact, her appreciation for being part of such a successful show is just enough reason to want to revive it. While speaking with E!, Bilson explained, "It's really nice that people loved the show so much and embraced it. I'm still so grateful to this day for the opportunity and to have been a part of something like that."
As for picking up where the kids of The O.C. left off, that could potentially have several kinks to iron out. She said,
I don't know what it would look like with our characters being old now. We were riding skateboards on the pier. I don't know what they do now as 30-year-olds. But it would be nice to see everybody again.
Bilson already reunited with former O.C. co-star Chris Cormack on CMT's Nashville and spends a lot of time with the show's creator and executive producer Josh Schwartz — seeing as he's married to her good friend. "I hear things through people, and I know people are doing well," the actor reassured E!, however. "Everyone's growing up."
It seems safe to bet that a grown-up version of The O.C. would be a total hit with its early 2000s fans. It'd be cool to see what the SoCal gang has been up to over the years, and surely fans would take a revival any way they could get it.
