Despite the fact that One Tree Hill has now been off the air for four years, it’s loyal fanbase has no plans to forget the series. After nine amazing seasons, the show cultivated a large and extremely passionate group of fans that keep One Tree Hill conventions and reunions running year after year. From Friday, July 22 to Sunday, July 24, InsideOTH hosted their 2016 fan convention in none other than Wilmington, North Carolina where the series was filmed. As a thanks for being so passionate and loyal, many of the stars cleared their schedule and reunited for the convention. Unfortunately some such as James Lafferty (Nathan) and Sophia Bush (Brooke) couldn’t make the trip but many did including, Antwon Tanner (Skills), Chad Michael Murray (Lucas), Bethany Joy Lenz (Haley), Paul Johansson (Dan) and even Hilarie Burton (Peyton). Thankfully many documented the entire weekend on social media, leaving those who couldn’t attend with these awesome photos and videos from the reunion!
14. Karaoke Party #1
Before the convention actually kicked off on Satuday, a lot of the cast came together for a Karaoke party in front of fans. A couple of days before the convention, Antwon Tanner teased fans by sharing a video of Hilarie Burton in which she talks about the upcoming convention and karaoke party, and what duet they should do together. It seems they chose Deniece Williams’ “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” resulting in this hilarious video:
13. Cast on Stage
With so many stars from the show attending the convention, it’s difficult to get a lot of group photos. Luckily a photo of many of them on stage was captured right before the group sang “Happy Birthday” to James Lafferty who couldn’t attend. This photo includes Lee Norris (Mouth), Cullen Moss (Junk Morretti), Antwon Tanner (Skills), Paul Johansson (Dan), Shantel VanSanten (Quinn), Bethany Joy Lenz (Haley), Hilarie Burton (Peyton), and Chad Michael Murray (Lucas).
12. James Sisters
All of the James sisters were lovable and gorgeous, and fans absolutely loved the addition of Shantel VanSanten as main character Quinn James from season 7 on. Luckily, she and her on-screen sister played by Bethany Joy Lenz were able to reunite for this adorable Quinn and Haley photo which VanSanten captioned, “I MADE IT! @inside_oth Sisterly love with the beautiful @joylenz xoxox.”

In fact, in one Q&A panel, Murray even repeated the famous line, “It’s you, Peyton. It’s always been you.” There was also this photo taken of the pair talking to the crowd and joking around on stage together.

8. Skills and Deb
One of the funniest and most unexpected relationships to form on One Tree Hill was definitely the one between Deb Scott and Skills.

The two were more than happy to see each other again at the convention with both sharing photos together. Barbara Alyn Woods shared this one with the caption, “So great to see my BABE!!!”

6. Haley and Skills
One of the show’s best episodes was season four’s “Pictures of You” which gave fans a closer look at Haley and Skills’s friendship. It isn’t hard to believe that the two are friends in real life, sharing a funny photo together. “#insideoth love this girl. We look good sis,” Tanner captioned the pic.
5. Skills and Hilarie
After Hilarie Burton and Chad Michael Murray left the series, Antwon Tanner said how he regretted not having more scenes with Peyton considering he was Lucas’s best friend. Luckily the two get lots of quality time at conventions and reunions.
4. OTH Collage
Thankfully for fans who couldn’t attend the convention, Shantel VanSanten loves taking pictures and loves Instagram. She made sure to get some awesome pictures with many of One Tree Hill’s male stars and put them in one great collage!

3. Awkward Trio
Deb Scott was once married to Dan Scott, and then went on to date one of Nathan’s friends, Skills. Luckily, in real life the three are good friends, and Antwon Tanner poked fun at their awkward history, captioning a photo of the three, “Who wouldn’t want to share this beautiful woman.”
2. I Don’t Want To Be
Without a doubt, one of the best videos to come out of all the events and panels was from night one’s Karaoke Party. Much of the cast took to the stage to sing a rendition of One Tree Hill‘s beloved theme song, Gavin DeGraw’s “I Don’t Want to Be.” Michael Copon (Felix) and Antwon Tanner took the lead but much of the cast can be seen hanging around the back.
