While it’s been 10 years since the The O.C. series finale aired, fans are still nostalgic for the California-set coming of age drama — and Bilson apparently is too. In an interview with E! News, the actress said would be down to revisit her role of Summer Roberts.
“I’m always open to things,” Bilson told E! News.
Despite the fact that Bilson is open to a revival of the early ‘00s series, she notes that things would definitely be different.
“I don’t know what it would look like with our characters being old now. We were riding skateboards on the pier; I don’t know what they do now as 30-year-olds,” said Bilson about the show, which also starred Ben Mackenzie, Mischa Barton, and Adam Brody. “But it would be nice to see everybody again.”
The last time we saw Summer she was happily with Seth Cohen (Brody), and when asked what her character would be doing now, Bilson painted a perfect picture.
“People always ask me that and I’m like, ‘What was she doing when we ended?'” the Hart of Dixie alum said. “I can’t even remember; it was so long ago. I’m sure she has kids with Seth. I don’t know! She’s on the beach.”
Summer and Seth sitting on a beach while their kids play is exactly what we always imagined their life to be like. Now, we just need to watch the scene unfold on TV in a reunion episode!
