HUGE OC NEWS!

According to Kristin over at eonline.com

MISCHA BARTON IS LEAVING ‘THE O.C.’ THAT’S WHAT SOURCES CONNECTED TO THE SHOW TELL ME, THAT SHE MAY APPEAR AS A GUEST STAR NEXT SEASON, BUT WILL *NOT BE A SERIES REGULAR. A REP FOR FOX SAYS HE, QUOTE, “Can’t confirm or deny, but viewers will have to tune in to find out on May 18.” IN THE MEANTIME, I CAN TELL YOU WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY THAT A MAJOR CHARACTER *IS BEING KILLED OFF IN THAT FINALE. IT COULD BE MARISSA, IT COULD BE ANOTHER ‘OC’ STAPLE. THIS IS A HUGE TWIST THE PRODUCERS HAVE BEEN PLOTTING FOR SIX MONTHS, AND *WHO IT IS HAS BEEN KEPT UNDER WRAPS BY SHOOTING MULTIPLE ENDINGS AND LEAVING CERTAIN PAGES *OUT OF THE SCRIPT. THIS DEATH WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING ABOUT ‘THE OC’ FOR NEXT SEASON.

Personally, anything that shakes up the OC can’t be a bad thing. This season has been generally awful, and it will take some major changes to get me excited about the show again.

    I have been saving up all the episodes this season because it started off so crappily. I have eps 6 through current. lol If she does leave and it comes back next season, I’ll catch up this summer. If it isn’t renewed or she doesn’t leave, I might not. Just can’t stand her or her storylines. bleh.

  • Kristen Veitch and Michael Ausiello have both said that someone will come CLOSE to dying, but not actually dying. As for Mischa, I don’t think I could watch without Marissa’s drunken breakdowns – just not the same.

  • Tim

    I’m glad. I have been calling for her to leave the show for a while. They have just ruined her character completely.

  • I might actually start watching again. Who knows!

  • PISSED

    I love mischa barton..the show will fail without her. if you take mischa barton out of the OC, the show will fail miserably

  • Caitlin

    kay well i will really be pissed of to if marissa leaves because i think that her charecter adds alot of drama and thats what the shows about!! i am reallly exited that kaitlin and taylor are going to be in it next season personally though i think that ryan sucks and should be killed of the show !!

  • Caitlin, I agree…. I think Marissa gets way to much negative buzz… I like her and think Ryan is the lamest character on the show!

  • cleo

    Huge OC news? They killed The OC. Idiots!

  • Lulu

    OK at first i was sad..but come to think of it,its true that if Marrissa had stayed..whats actually left to do with her?She’s already had drugs,she’s already been alchoholic,she’s already killed someone,got kicked out of school and much much more..whats left for her to do? Seriously?
    And i sooo don’t agree with all you guys! THe third series was by far the best..Marrissa and Ryan on the rocks,Johny getting injured and then dying,Kaitlyn comming back,Seth getting into drugs ect ect…3d series ROX!
    I can’t wait for Kaitlyn to be in the show..and i think she’s gonna help the show recover from Marissa leaving! But i’m a bit worried the 4th series might not be good,not because of Marrissa but because of everyone going their seperate ways! I think Summer And Seth aer the best..and Tayler is just great..i’m looking forward to seing how they pull it together at college!
