Don’t Freak Out, But Rachel Bilson Just Said She’s Up For An ‘O.C.’ Reboot

Starts freaking out

Last month, we finally had confirmation of the Gossip Girl reboot we’d been praying for for years and now it seems another of our favourite teen dramas could return to our screens.

Rachel Bilson, who played Summer Roberts on The O.C., just revealed that she’s on board for the iconic early aughts show to get a reboot, telling InStyle US that she would “absolutely be open to it.”

“The O.C. gave me everything. I love it and I’m still super close to [showrunners] Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, so I’d follow them wherever they go. If they backed it, I’d 100 per cent be up for it,” the 37-year-old said.

Rachel’s promising comments come just a few days after she made headlines for running into her former co-star and real-life ex-boyfriend, Adam Brody, at the airport in New York. The actress posted their encounter to Instagram with the caption, “Ran into my ol buddy from jfk to lax #californiaherewecome🤓”

The actress also revealed that while she can’t believe it’s been 16 years since the show first started, a new generation of teenagers are now watching it for the first time. 

“I recently ran into Olivia Wilde [who played resident O.C. rebel Alex Kelly], who told me that she was meeting all of these young kids on the campaign trail, and she said, ‘There’s an O.C. resurgence of kids rediscovering it now.’ I thought that was so cool.”
