Chad Michael Murray left One Tree Hill after the 6th season wrapped and claimed when speaking with fans it was really because the show producers wanted to save money, yet show creator Mark Schwann said they offered him plenty to make him stay. Since whatever beef that was, he did return to the show briefly in season 9. From 2013-2015 he was on the show Chosen, yet hasn't attained the same star status he once held while on OTH. Though 2015 did also bring him a main role on Marvel's show Agent Carter on ABC, which potentially will have a second season in 2016. In 2014 he began dating his Chosen co-star Sarah Roemer and it was revealed that the couple married early in 2015 and are expecting their first child together.

Sophia Bush AKA the Queen of Tree Hill stayed with us until the very end and we will always love her because of it. As you obviously know, she's still killing the game on TV as a badass bitch on Chicago P.D. Her character Erin Lindsay has also appeared in crossover episodes on the shows Chicago Fire and Law & Order: SVU. She remains as close to her fans as ever, as she advocates for animals, people, and the environment as often as she possibly can, despite her busy-busy schedule.

If you're an avid fan of The Walking Dead, then you probably freaked out during the 2nd half of season five when Julian showed up. We don't really know much about his character, Spencer, but we're happy to see him again. Since OTH ended he's been popping up all over TV on shows like Ray Donovan, The Mob Doctor, and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Things didn't work out between Nichols and Sophia Bush (who dated on and off for a few years before and after OTH) and he's been with Chloe Bennett since 2013, after appearing on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D as her on-screen boyfriend.

You can't kill Dan Scott, so obviously he never left Tree Hill. Most of Paul's bigger work occurred before/while he was on the show, like John Q and Alpha Dog, but he's been busy since the show ended. Like some of his other cast mates, he's attended different OTH conventions and has guest spots on TV, like on Beauty and the Beast as well as House of Secrets. He's currently filming a Hallmark Channel film, Last Resort, with Teri Polo.

As an avid OTH fan, I'll never get over the fact Whitey didn't return for the series finale. But I guess it's because Barry Corbin has been really busy with his other TV work. Some of his most notable post-OTH roles are on The Closer, Suit Up, Cam's dad on Modern Family, and Anger Management.
