It’s a Wonderful Lifetime is back, meaning the holiday season is officially here! The holidays come with many perks—cookies, cozy sweaters, cocoa—but none are as addictive as made-for-TV holiday movies. This year, Lifetime is once again going head-to-head with Hallmark (and budding holiday competitor Netflix) to see who can release the most deliciously bonkers holiday movies.
Earlier this year, Lifetime revealed it would be giving us the on-screen One Tree Hill reunion of our dreams with The Christmas Contract. The movie stars FIVE former cast members of the beloved teen drama: Hilarie Burton, Danneel Ackles, Robert Buckley, Antwon Tanner, and Tyler Hilton. And now, the teaser for the movie, slated to premiere on Thanksgiving Day, has arrived.
There may be no Lucas Scott or Brooke Davis in sight, but we’ll take it.
Burton stars as Jolie, a web designer who’s dreading returning to her hometown for the holidays after a devastating breakup—especially because her ex is already bringing his new girlfriend home. Luckily, her lawyer best friend, Naomi (Ackles), devises a plan for her brother Jack (Buckley) to pose as Jolie’s boyfriend over the holidays, and in return, Josie will design a website for Jack’s new novel.
As if one on-screen reunion weren’t enough, Lifetime is also hosting a one-hour OTH reunion special featuring The Christmas Contract stars and some very special guests—including Stephen Colletti, Bevin Prince, and Paul Johansson—set to air right after the movie’s premiere.
So put on the Ravens jersey you bought for Halloween that one year, grab a second helping of pie, and have the ultimate One Tree Hill experience when The Christmas Contract airs on November 22nd.
