'One Tree Hill' goes back to the future at downtown set


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- For years "One Tree Hill" has called a Wilmington storefront home. For the first half of the show's run, the location at the southeast corner of Front and Grave Streets served as the set for the fictional Karen's Cafe. When the show jumped ahead several years in its timeline a few years ago, Karen (played by actress Moira Kelly) had moved away.

The new storyline had Brooke Davis (played by Sophia Bush) purchase the space for a Tree Hill location for her Clothes Over Bros. clothing line. The storefront set changed with it.

Now, though, the set has gone back in time. This season, Clothes Over Bros. went out of business. A few weeks ago we spotted carpenters working at the set with the windows covered. This week spotted the old Karen's Cafe neon sign back in the window and the doors repainted to reflect the change as well. The show shot at the set last night, and today we got a sneak peak through the windows at the revamped site.

No word yet on how the change plays into the storyline, but after we posted photos yesterday on Twitter, "OTH" fans were, well, atwitter with excitement.

Stay tuned!
