Plus, find out what’s in store for Chase, Mia and Alex in the coming weeks!

We may not yet know whether or not One Tree Hill will be back for a ninth season in the fall — but we do know we’ll be seeing a whole lotta Stephen Colletti if it does! “It’s in my contract to do another season,” he tells HollywoodLife.com. “I’m in. I’m forced to. … No, I’d be excited.”

And it sounds like Chase’s love triangle with Alex (Jana Kramer) and Mia (Kate Voegele) is still very much in tact this season, even though it seemed pretty clear at Brooke (Sophia Bush) and Julian’s (Austin Nichols) wedding reception that he’d chosen Mia.

“Chase is just having a whirlwind with this love triangle,” Stephen tells us. “He’s not that kind of guy. He’s not someone who’s a player. He’s trying to figure out which way to go. You’ll see in the next few weeks, he takes a step back. There will be a resolution. There will be some settling down.”
