The duo, who interviewed each other on Entertainment Tonight for their upcoming Welcome to The OC, Bitches! podcast, shared “a reboot would be awesome.”
“I know we talked about definitely getting together personally, as a reunion … all of us getting together,” Bilson, 39, said during the interview. “I think we have spoken to some already, everyone’s onboard for that.”
“But a reboot would be awesome,” she continued. “I think that’s in the hands of Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage [creators and executive producers]. There’s still a ways to go, so maybe they’ll figure it out! That’d be fun.”
The podcast, Welcome to The OC, Bitches!, will feature “former cast members, writers, musicians, and many people that made The O.C. the cultural phenomenon that it is today” the duo revealed.
“Grab your bikinis, your Juicy jumpsuits, and your flip phones because every Tuesday, we’re going back to the early 2000s,” Bilson told fans in a promo for the upcoming podcast.
