The real OC is a beautiful backdrop to this universal story and this year we go back to the heart of the drama…that wistful last year of school."
Beginning July 23, fans can log onto MTV.ca/Newport to view cast bios, check out cast photos, get their first look at the new season and watch full episodes from previous seasons.

Meanwhile, former best friends compete for the affection of a younger beauty.
