Season Three Spoilers
Posted May 28, 2005 @ 6:36 PM
PLEASE do not come here just to guess what might happen; this is for posting concrete spoilers or hints, and discussing how those may or may not bear out.
I'd love it if everyone worked together to make sure this doesn't devolve into speculation about the show that's based on people's personal wants and not on actual information leaking out.
Thanks in advance for helping this thread toe that line.

05/23 - I know Caleb really is gone for good, and the jury's still out on Trey. The younger peeps were nowhere to be found at Fox's upfronts, but I did chat with Melinda Clarke, Peter Gallagher and our beloved Kirsten, all of whom claimed to know nothing. Hmph. However, Melinda did say that Tate Donovan will be back next season. Hurrah! And that "I think now, what will be really interesting is to see Julie Cooper stand on her own two feet, WITHOUT a man, for once. She's going to be a force to reckon with. Source: Kristin on E!Online
05/21 - When the series returns for season three, Seth, Summer, Ryan and Marissa will celebrate their senior year at Harbor High. And the return of JIMMY COOPER (Tate Donovan) to pull his family together after the emotional events of this season will see one family grow strong again – while another is challenged as the Cohens face Kirsten’s problems head-on in THE O.C. Source: FOX (Thanks Ashlee for the tip.)
05/10 - Regarding plans for next year, Schwartz says, "Year three, for us, is going to be senior year, so obviously that's a huge event in these kids' lives, and for their parents as well. So we'll be dealing with all sorts of things, like what does the future hold, college, graduation, all those kind of gigantic, kind of epic events in high school life." Source: Zap2it

Does anyone know if TD will be back as a series regular again or as recurring?

Only really it should have been done this year, because is no way they were in 10th grade during the first season! Not that I'm better or anything, because they took them from being in my (superior!)Class of '05 to the (stupid!)class of '06 or anything.
I really hope there's actually going to be a continual storyline about applying to college...instead of just the, "Oh, we're all going to UC Irvine. How nice!" It's so not natural, for anyone in Gen Y, where the massive amount of competition for college makes even slacker kids like me pile on extracurriculars, to not be stressed out about applying for college. I wanna see them take the SAT's. Visit colleges. Take AP Classes and wanna die. Deal with the annoying guidance counselor that wants everyone to go to college, whether they want to or not. Deal with some of them burning out early. See the competitive battle alot of kids wage with each other over what college they go to. (For example, in my own life, I got told that going to a private 4-year liberal arts college was shitty, from this guy that got into U Penn. I, in turn, comfort myself by saying at least its not community college.)

That sounds like the most boring television show ever.

I'd like to add that based on the fact that this post about AP's was so boring, a season of AP classes would be exponentially more boring.

Navi Rawat said in an interview:
"Josh had approached me with a script in his hands, and I was anxious to see what happened next...I think for viewers it is going to be an interesting approach on what Theresa and the baby's standing is...The Cohens are in for a rough year...which will make for interesting actions from the viewers, but Josh said over-the-top drama is on a down slope for this season, after such a dramatic season 2, he thinks it is time to return to the "original OC!"

"Well, who was the little minx at Newport Beach this year? It was Alex. She had Seth going all bad boy to impress her, then fell for Marissa- who tried playing for the other team but was dumped cold. Don't give up on Olivia yet, though; word is Alex will be back to create more heartache..."

If that's the case, then I don't think Ben Mckenzie knows. He was just interviewed on T4 in Britain (shown today)and when asked if she'd be back, he said he didn't know as she was doing movies and stuff and he wasn't sure they could get her back even if they wanted to.
Don't give up on Olivia yet, though; word is Alex will be back to create more heartache..."

I haven't read Dolly in about *counts on fingers* five years or so, so things may have changed, but I wouldn't bank on them being correct. They could well have accurate information, but in my experience mags like Dolly usually published spoilers well after they had become fairly common knowledge on the net.
browan469: Hmm. Anyone know how reliable the magazine Dolly is? Because if the rumor they wrote in theiir June 05 issue (I'll write the little article below) I am going to be SO.HAPPY.

Kristin said in this weeks column on Eonline.com that she spoke with Navi Rawat about coming back to the O.C. and this is what Navi had to say:
"The thing about that show is I'm not contractually obligated to it in any way," Navi tells me. "They just kind of call me if they need me. They called and wanted me to do the one that was on a few weeks ago [where Ryan runs into Theresa in Chino], and they left it so open-ended, I feel like they'll have me back again to wrap up that storyline. I love doing the show. The people there are really nice, and Mischa and I are good friends. So, I would definitely go back."
The whole "wrap up the storyline" makes me wonder.... If it is "wrapping up" that means ENDING it, which means Ryan may not be a baby daddy.

It was a very indepth interview ranging from information about the OC to his new movie JuneBug.
Regarding the OC, he mentioned very little about the upcoming season but gave a few minor hints:
1) THEY ARE NOT IN HIGH SCHOOL NEXT SEASON (He was not sure how Josh was gonna put them in college, but they are done with high school.)
2) THE THERESA PLOTLINE COMES BACK HEAVY (He knew very little about this, but when they go back to shooting in July that's one of the main storylines.)"
From another thread...

I wouldn't be surprised about the Theresa thing kicking into full gear next year, though.
