There has never been a dull moment on the addicting TV series One Tree Hill since the show’s debut in 2003. Season seven kept the drama rolling all the way through each of the 22 episodes.

This season brought a handful of new characters to Tree Hill. We get to meet Clay Evans (Robert Buckley), who is Nathan Scott’s (James Lafferty) agent. He has his own bag of issues that come to the forefront when he gets involved with Quinn James (Shantel VanSanten), who is Haley James Scott’s (Bethany Joy Galeotti) older sister that has come to town after leaving her husband.

A popular actress, Alex Dupre (Jana Kramer), comes to town after Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) hires her to be the new face of Clothes Over Bros. We also meet Miranda Stone (India de Beaufort), who comes to shut down Red Bedroom Records and winds up discovering a major talent in Tric’s somewhat drink-psychic bartender, Grubbs (Michael Grubbs).

This season catches up with the residents of Tree Hill 14 months after Lucas and Peyton have left. Nathan finds himself in the middle of an affair/paternity scandal, Haley and Quinn receive heartbreaking news from their mother, and two familiar faces are now married. The latest season is filled with the ups and downs that challenge the characters of One Tree Hill and leave the viewers wanting more.

One Tree Hill: The Complete Seventh Season, which was released earlier this month, is packed full of extras including unaired scenes, behind the scenes vignettes, and a season seven gag reel that is not to be missed.

The commentary from episodes “I and Love and You” and “Almost Everything I Wish I’d Said the Last Time I Saw You…” is not to be missed. You get to listen in as Mark Schwan, producer Joe Davola, and James Lafferty, Robert Buckley, and Stephen Colletti (who plays Chase Adams) talk about what happens behind the scenes, as well as shots that were cut. It’s interesting to listen to why some shots made the episode, what shots didn’t, as well as getting to hear what the actors think about their co-stars.

The vignettes are fun to watch for any fan of One Tree Hill. “Return to Camp One Tree Hill” introduces the new faces on the show, as well as catch up with the cast as they shoot the first episode of the season. There are also interviews with the cast intertwined with the behind-the-scenes footage.

In “Spring Break with One Tree Hill” the audience gets to meet two fans who got to visit the set of One Tree Hill while the cast shot the season finale. During their multi-day set visit, the winners got to meet various cast members, work as production assistants, and much more.

Viewers get to follow Sophia Bush as she stepped into the role of director in “OTH – The Director’s Debut.” The camera follows Bush around as she preps and shoots her first episode of One Tree Hill. You also hear from her co-stars about what they thought about taking direction from one of their fellow actors.

Fans of the show will definitely love this latest box set of One Tree Hill. For new fans, with the extras they are able to meet the cast and the new characters and feel like they’ve been watching the show since season one.
