Rachel Bilson has spoken about a possible reboot of The OC, revealing that she’d be keen to revisit the hit show.

The actress is known for playing Summer Roberts on the teen drama, and revealed she’d be ‘willing to revisit’ the role should the opportunity come along.

Originally running from 2003 to 2007, the beloved series was a pop culture phenomenon with an impressive cast including the likes of Ben McKenzie, Mischa Barton and Adam Brody.

The show – which was created by Josh Schwartz – also included the likes of Melinda Clarke, Tate Donovan, Alan Dale, Chris Carmack, Autumn Reeser and Willa Holland.

Speaking on IMDb’s Movies That Changed My Life podcast, the 39-year-old spoke about the chances of a possible reboot.

‘You know, I think there’s always those discussions and people saying if they want it and what not. I don’t know. It’s kind of hard to figure out where everyone would go,’ Rachel said.

‘I’m sure there’s places to go. There’s like a whole new class I’m sure they could come up with. I don’t know, you know? It’s one of those things where it’s hard to be, like, do you want to touch this, or do you want to leave it as is?’

The actress went on to say: ‘But I know that Melinda [Clarke] and I have both said we would, of course, be more than willing to revisit such a fond memory. And Josh Schwartz and [executive producer] Stephanie Savage can do no wrong, in my opinion.’

Schwartz previously played down the idea of a reboot back in 2019 – but fans can still live in hope that the show could be brought back at some point.

Elsewhere, Rachel recently insisted things are ‘totally fine’ between her and Rami Malek after he asked her to remove a throwback picture she posted.

The OC star went to school with Rami, with both of them attending California’s Notre Dame High School, and she shared a ‘super nerdy’ snap of the pair of them to social media as a little dose of nostalgia in 2019. However, Rami, 39, asked his friend to take it down, and Rachel, also 39, was rather taken aback.

The OC is available to stream on All 4 now.
