California here we come! Hit 2000s TV show 'The OC' could be getting a reboot!

The show ended in 2007, but reports suggest the team working on the reboot of 'Gossip Girl' are now eyeing up 'The OC' as their next project.

An anonymous source revealed some potential storylines and dished the dirt on why the reboot hasn't happened already.

"The idea of a reboot was off the table for most of the past decade mainly bc Ben McKenzie (Ryan) & Willa Holland (Marissa's little sister Kaitlin) had series-regular roles in shows filming far out of town (NYC/Vancouver), and Josh Schwartz (creator/showrunner) didn't think it could 'work' w/o Ryan in particular (esp. since the show never really recovered after Marissa was killed off"

They went on to add "There's also already a rough sketch circulating of where the show would pick up; Seth & Summer, more or less happily married in Newport and living in their old 'hood (actually filmed in Malibu but nvm lol), with their kid(s)-could be one or two-starting out as freshmen at Harbor."

"Obviously lots of plot possibilities from there: the original show didn't shy away from serious issues, and this would be a great way to delve into broader issues of classism and racism. Also helpful in this case that Adam & Rachel were older than their characters, and could believably play 40ish parents with a 15-year-old(ish) kid."

We'll have to wait and see if this ends up happening or not - but we'd love to see where these characters all ended up!
