Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke launch The OC rewatch podcast

The 2000s teen in me needs this!

I think we’ve all gone back to binge watching our comfort shows since the start of lockdown, sure what else would we be doing besides our 5km walk?

Most of my re-watches have been my favourite shows from the 2000s, with everything from reality shows like America’s Next Top Model and The Simple Life to Gilmore Girls and of course The OC.

The O.C was one of the biggest shows when I was a teenager, but unlike Gilmore Girls it sort of fell off the radar for a bit, but not any more as Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke have just launched The OC rewatch podcast!

Rachel Bilson who played queen bee Summer Roberts on the show and Melinda Clarke who played Marissa’s mom Julie Cooper are planning to reunite for a rewatch podcast, titled ‘Welcome to the OC, Bitches!’ and we are here for it!

Following several social media posts hinting at something OC related a brief teaser was announced stating;

“Join the original OC bitches, friends, and co-stars, Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke, for a trip back to the early 2000s.

Zip up your Juicy Couture tracksuits and grab a seat by the pool while they deliver the ultimate O.C.-rewatch podcast.”

There has been no details yet in regards to the first installment of ‘Welcome to the OC, Bitches!’ but I will be keeping my eyes firmly peeled on Bilson and Clarke’s social media for when it drops.

Until then I’m going to do just as the teaser suggested and get my Juicy Couture tracksuit out of retirement, put on way to much lipgloss and get ready for a major nostalgia trip.

I’m also guessing that there will be lots of behind the scenes gossip too, I can’t wait for this!
