Barbara Alyn Wood played the over-the-top Deb Scott for the first six seasons of One Tree Hill from 2003-2009. Mother to Nathan Scott (James Lafferty) and once married to the villainous Dan Scott (Paul Johansson), Deb brought her own brand of drama to the hit show.
Update: The CW has confirmed that Chad Michael Murray will be returning to One Tree Hill during season 9. Fans have been eagerly awaiting and desperately hoping for this news. According to The CW, Murray’s character, Lucas, will return to Tree Hill when best friend and sister-in-law Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) reaches out for help. Murray himself confirmed the information via Twitter.

Other OTH news:
Since we first learned on June 26, 2011 that One Tree Hill would be granted one more season to wrap things up, news of returning cast members has been speculated and confirmed in the weeks that followed. Here’s a peek at who you can expect to see gracing the small screen when OTH returns in the spring of 2012.
- Tyler Hilton is slated to reprise his role of musician Chris Keller, who fans will remember created no small amount of trouble during the early days of Haley and Nathan’s marriage. In an interview with E! Online Hilton revealed that he will be a series regular in the final season.
- Paul Johansson will be bringing the bad back to Tree Hill full-time with his character of Dan Scott, E! Online giddily revealed in July. Sure, the last time we saw Dan Scott it seemed he had perhaps made some steps toward the positive, but this is Dan Scott…Trouble brews around that man.
- A killer coming to Tree Hill – On August 21, 2011 SpoilerTV revealed via Entertainment Weekly that a killer was coming to the sweet streets of Tree Hill, and no, we’re not talking about Dan Scott. Andrew Elvis Miller will join the cast of OTH as an “Eastern European Assassin.” Who knows what on earth that means, but my favorites better still be standing when the last credit rolls on season 9.
The only thing that would make the One Tree Hill season 9 news complete would be confirmations of returns from fan favorites Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton, Lucas and Peyton, respectively. Earlier today (August 29, 2011) Chad Michael Murray tweeted that he has “Big news for u guys & gals later this week! Sleep well. Goodnight…” It would seem that news is OTH related. Stay tuned…
