First Look: ONE TREE HILL Season 5 – “4 Years, 6 Months, 2 Days” later

Check out the first pictures from the new season five of ONE TREE HILL.

It is a bold move for One Tree Hill to move about 5 years in the future, but it could be a smart one too if the storylines get more compelling.

From the looks of the pictures, Jamie is all grown up, although I cannot see any signs of Nathan. Haley alone in a bed… could that mean trouble?

It looks like Lucas became the cool uncle we always knew he would be.

I’m not sure yet if I am excited about this change, but I am hoping it’s a step up from last season of One Tree Hill. Like I mentioned before, I will give the first episode a chance and if it’s really, really good, and only if it’s really good will I keep watching.

I also previously mentioned the One Tree Hill Fast Forward episodes here.

One Tree Hill season 5 premiere January 8th with a two-hour episode starting at 8pm on The CW.

For now, you can enjoy more pictures from the first episode “4 Years, 6 Months, 2 Days” of One Tree Hill‘s 5th season and the episode description below.

Episode Description: “4 Years, 6 Months, 2 Days” – Four years after the season four finale, Tree Hill is a new place. Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) is a struggling writer who is about to embark on a new coaching career with Skills (Antwon Tanner). Peyton (Hilarie Burton) is at the beginning of a budding music venture, while Brooke’s (Sophia Bush) fashion line is at a crossroads. Meanwhile, Nathan (James Lafferty) and Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) are young parents trying to find their way. Much has changed in four years, but in many ways, the journey is just beginning.
