Looks like Chrismukkah came early this year! The O.C. is the latest in a long string of nostalgic shows made available again via online streaming.
On Monday, Nov. 2, Complex was the first to report that all four seasons of the beloved early aughts teen soap are now available on the CW Seed, the network’s Internet hub for all things comedy.
The series, which ran from 2003 to 2007, followed the teenage antics and dramas of show mainstays Ryan Atwood (Ben McKenzie), Seth Cohen (Adam Brody), Marissa Cooper (Mischa Barton), and Summer Roberts (Rachel Bilson).
It also gave exposure to many then-unknown musical artists, including Phantom Planet (their song “California” became the show’s theme song) and Death Cab for Cutie (whom Brody’s character always touted).
The O.C. was previously unavailable on streaming sites like Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon.
Other nostalgic shows that are now searchable on CW Seed include Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Backpackers, Hellcats, The Ben Stiller Show, Play It Again, and The Kelly Cutrone Project.
