From 2003 to 2012, One Tree Hill reigned as one of the most popular teen dramas on TV and has remained one of the most beloved shows since. No matter how many years go by fans can’t get enough of the series or its stars, and it is all thanks to the amazing stories and characters the show gave us. One of the series’ greatest strengths was its cast and no matter if a character was major, minor or came in later in the series, they all became an integral part of the show meaning there were a lot of characters to keep track of. It is impossible to rank everyone, but take a look back at the show and some of your favorite characters with One Tree Hill‘s 15 most popular characters ranked from worst to best:
15. Deb Scott
Deb Scott goes through one of the craziest character trajectories out of everyone on the series. After beginning as a professional working mom and wife to Nathan and Dan Scott, she eventually devolved into neurotics. Although Deb definitely had her heartwarming and most definitely hilarious moments, her attitude towards Haley and Nathan’s marriage turned a lot of fans against her. Not to mention she brought a loaded gun into Karen’s cafe which could have been a much worse situation than it already was. Watching Deb go from a well put together and respected woman to neurotic and having flings with her son’s friends may have been entertaining, but was unfortunate for the character.
