One Tree Hill may have ended years ago, but the characters that made up the show still linger in our memories as we hope and pray for a happy reunion one day. After all, there's been nothing quite like the rollercoaster ride of relationships and drama since the final credits rolled in 2012.
Yet, did you know that the show was also the birthplace of a number of relationships in real life too? Indeed, many members of the cast gave love a try during their time of the show, some with more success than others. Find out who below:
1. Chad Michael Murray & Sophia Bush
Perhaps the couple of One Tree Hill (on and off-screen), Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush began dating the year that the show began, getting engaged in May 2004 and marrying the following year. Here they are at the peak of their love story on-screen:
Sadly, just five months into married life, our hopes and dreams for the real-life Brooke and Lucas fell apart as their marriage crumbled following reports that Chad had cheated on his wife with Paris Hilton. Oops.
2. James Lafferty & Sophia Bush
Following her turbulent break-up with Chad, Sophia didn't beat around the bush and began something with co-star James Lafferty. In May 2008, they officially became an item before ending it exactly a year later.

3. Sophia Bush & Austin Nichols
Was it third time lucky for Sophia? The actress dated her third man from the series in the shape of Austin Nichols. In fact, they were first linked back in 2006 when Sophia's divorce to Chad was being finalized but nothing came of it.
After Austin joined the show as Julian though, they fell in love and remained in a relationship on-and-off for four years. Sadly, it wasn't in the cards and they waved each other goodbye just as One Tree Hill came to an end in 2012.
4. Kenzie Dalton & Chad Michael Murray
Yet, while Sophia was off dating a slew of other One Tree Hill cast members, Chad Michael Murray wasn't sitting at home twiddling his thumbs either. Actually, he also got together with someone involved with the show — an extra.
Soon after his marriage crumbled to tiny pieces, Chad began dating Kenzie after she appeared on the show as a cheerleader and just three months after being together, they were engaged. This continued on for seven years, before they decided to break up. These days though, it seems he has moved on with someone else and even has a baby.
5. Robert Buckley & Shantel VanSanten
For a few years, Robert Buckley and Shantel VanSanten appeared to be very happy. However, it wasn't meant to be and he soon moved on to #Glee star Lea Michele, with whom he's no longer with either.
6. Chelsea Kane & Stephen Colletti
In March 2011, these two were set up on a blind date by Chelsea's manager. When she joined the cast a year later, they were already going strong. After two years though, their relationship withered away and they were no more. Sob.
7. Scott Holroyd & Allison Munn
Long before they appeared in front of the camera together, Scott Holroyd and Allison Munn already knew each other — in fact, they were already childhood friends. Finally, they got together in November 2004 and by the time they were on One Tree Hill, they had already been together for five years. They married in 2007 and welcomed their first child into the world in 2011. Nice one, guys!
