Welcome to memory lane, b—h!
With The O.C. hitting Hulu in April, the one-time Fox show is back in the pop culture conversation as new fans discover the series for the first time. So when The O.C. creators gathered at the ATX Festival in June, EW talked to them about the show’s legacy and the moments they’ll never forget, from the Spider-Man kiss to Anna’s airport farewell.
See what executive producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas, and writer Leila Gerstein had to say about the show that gave us Seth Cohen, Chrismukkah, and so, so much more. (Spoiler: Schwartz really did hate water polo players.)
