Rachel is seen getting gas in Sherman Oaks, CA on December 9, 2018.
Summer Roberts could ride again. Rachel Bilson said that she's open to the idea of an O.C. reunion. That's right, if the stars align just right and the Chrismukkah deities deign us worthy of all things good, the gang could be back together again on the sunny shores of Orange County. "I'm always open to things," Bilson told E! News. "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."
And while fans of the show can probably remember every last detail and Juicy Couture tracksuit, Bilson admitted that she's not 100% clear on where things left off in Newport Beach. When fans approach her, she says that she doesn't even recall what happened to Summer leading up to the series' finale.
"It's really nice that people loved the show so much and embraced it," she told E! News of her breakout role. "I'm still so grateful to this day for the opportunity and to have been a part of something like that."
Unfortunately for fans who like to imagine Seth, Summer, zombie Marissa, and Ryan all hanging out at South Coast Plaza and attending the Orange County Man of the Year awards ceremony 10 years after Phantom Planet's "California" played over the opening credits, Bilson says that the gang doesn't get together all that often. Plus, both Adam Brody and Ben McKenzie are married and have kids now, which could make the timing difficult if a revival really did materialize. Bilson does remain close to the show's creator, Josh Schwartz, however. It's easier on that front: He's married to her best friend.
The cancellation of networks' summer TV shows is continuing, this time, over at ABC. The Alphabet Network has decided the fate of the Rachel Bilson starrer, Take Two. Unfortunately for fans, that decision was to cancel the procedural. There is hope that it may not be done with its run quite yet, though.
Like many shows that were cancelled by their original network, Take Two may find a second life on a streaming platform. The crime procedural is being looked at by not one, but two streaming outlets, per THR. Those interested streamers were not identified.
Of course, there are arguably three platforms to choose from -- Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. Let's consider the contenders. Netflix tends to be seen as the savior of cancelled series. This year, the streaming giant stood in the gap to revive Lucifer after Fox cancelled it. That series had a three-season run and developed a robust fan following. Take Two has one season with 13 episodes under its belt.
That said, Netflix is already streaming a Rachel Bilson-led series. The platform currently has her CW series, Hart of Dixie, streaming. They would know if it is a considerably popular pick among subscribers. If it is, they could be interested in having a new series that stars her in it. Netflix is not the only streamer with a Rachel Bilson show on its roster though.
Hulu is streaming the series that made Rachel Bilson a breakout star. That's right, Hulu has teen drama The O.C.'s dramatic run. Why not pick up a show starring one of its prominent stars? It makes sense Hulu would. Plus, having saved shows like The Mindy Project, it lines up that Hulu would be interested in Take Two.
