The characters on "One Tree Hill" have survived to another season of adulthood.
The CW network says it will pick up six of its shows for another season, including "One Tree Hill," which is filmed in Wilmington.
The CW said the combination of "Gossip Girl" and "One Tree Hill" on Monday nights has been successful.
Series creator Mark Schwahn agreed in October to head a seventh
season if the network wanted one. But the actors' six-year contracts end after this season, and it's not clear how many will return.
The "One Tree Hill" characters went from high school at the end of season four to adulthood when season five began, skipping their years in college.
