SALT LAKE CITY — Seth and Summer from “The O.C.” reunited earlier this week, which is giving us severe early-2000s vibes.
Rachel Bilson, who played Summer on the Fox drama “The O.C.” from 2003 to 2007, shared a photo of herself and Adam Brody, who played Seth. The show centered around a troubled teen Ryan Atwood (Ben McKenzie), who moves to Orange County and disrupts the lifestyle of rich kids like Seth and Summer.
Brody and Bilson were reportedly heading to Los Angeles’ LAX together, which is fitting seeing as the main theme song for “The O.C.” was Phantom Planet’s “California.”
“Ran into my ol buddy from jfk to lax #californiaherewecome ,” Bilson wrote in the caption, which was a reference to the song “California.”
Bilson and Brody had a real-life relationship off screen during the show’s run. Brody later married Leighton Meester, while Bilson has been dating as a single mom.
Speaking of families, back in 2015, Brody and McKenzie both had babies around the same time, which I wrote about for the Deseret News. Brody and Meester welcomed their baby girl Arlo hours before McKenzie and his wife Morena Baccarin announced they were expecting a child, too.
