It's time for Chad Michael Murray to start looking for a new job. Chad and Hilarie Burton, whose characters got married in the latest episode of One Tree Hill, will not be returning for the show's seventh season next fall.
Murray and Burton had been trying to negotiate new contracts for the past several months. A deal couldn't be worked, so the CW said bye bye to the duo. They will make their final appearances in next Monday's season finale.
Two new characters will be introduced next season to fill the void. Plus, Jake Gyllenhaal's best buddy, Austin Nichols, is being promoted to series regular.
