OTH SEASON 3 Well, the WB has finally released details on what will be the 2005 Fall Line-up. One Tree Hill will be back for a third season, and more episodes. Rumor has it the station has ordered 26 episodes (three more than this year). The show will also be making a switch to Wednesday nights @ 8PM ET.

"After a remarkable sophomore season, the One Tree Hill phenomenon continues living up to its rep as "one of the fastest growing shows on television."

In the upcoming season, this multi-generational drama finds half brothers, Nathan and Lucas Scott uncovering even more scandalous secrets about their family and friends. The lustful passion of Lucas and Brooke (real life couple Chad Michael Murray & Sophia Bush) remains unspoken, but ready to ignite at any moment. Nathan (James Lafferty) finds himself suddenly alone - and single - after a volatile year of marriage to Haley (Bethany Joy Lenz). The love Peyton (Hilarie Burton) has for young single-dad Jake (Bryan Greenberg) will be put to the ultimate test as his custody battle explodes, leading to accusations and arrests.

The responsible adults of Tree Hill are finding their lives even more tumultuous. Dan's (Paul Johansson) maniacal mind has a few surprises for estranged wife Deb (Barbara Allen Wood). His competitive ego shows no boundaries when it comes keeping to "model family" together. It seems the tangled web of Tree Hill winds tighter every season.
