Is there any new Teen Drama on the horizon?

With the demise of The O.C., the long gone Dawson's Creek, there doesn't seem to be any good Teen drama to take over the airwaves at the moment. I am even contemplating watching One Tree Hill ! Thou I don't know if its a bit late since that is in Season 4 now. Is the era of teen dramas over, and all the shows now going for the 24/LOST/Heroes style with a season long story arc that's closely knit with minimum filler episodes ?

you still have smallville

and hollyoaks

and thats about it, doesn't seem to be any teen drama around. Though must be tons on "trouble", i just can't think of any good ones. Charmed was a bit teenaged i suppose.

That Jack Bauer series would be quality. They could call it 'Saved by the Bauer'!

Possible Ideas:
He might have to rescue the teams cow mascot or something when its kidknapped by a rival school, and he's up against the clock to get it back before 'The big game'.

Or, There's a bomb in a school somewhere in the city, set to go off at 3:15. If any student leaves before 3:15 then the bomb goes off anyway. There's an old man in a vest trying to find it before it goes off, but Jack Bauer don't need no help. He has to check his school for the bomb, whilst also stopping anyone from leaving.

Go on, everyone have a go. The possibilities are endless!

A young scientist develops a virus and threatens to deploy it via the school water system unless his ridiculase demands are met. When Jack has to make the choice of meeting his girlfriend (who feels he never has time for her) or stopping the water supply from being contaminated he makes the ultimate sacrifice.

In order to infiltrate the school swimming team, Jack starts taking anabolic steroids. After taking down the swimming captain, Jack finds his grades slipping due to his dependancy on drugs.

By Teen Drama I mean US runs if 22 episodes a year, and Hollyoaks doesn't count.

Will have to watch Friday Night Lights, saw 2 already and apart from that really pretty brunette who is the Girlfriend of a paralysed football player, it's quite hard to get into and know who is the main characters...there are so many in the cast.

FNL is the best thing on US TV at this time IMO, but its not teen drama in the sense that The OC or Dawsons or OTH is. FNL reflects lifes complexities too much and the kids act like kids not 20 somethings

I haven't seen One Tree Hill, but if it's still being made then presumably it's better than The OC which got cancelled because nobody was watching it.

Well it started at the same time as The OC. Must have something going for it.

One Tree Hill is well worth watching. It's mostly trash but if you like teen dramas and looking at pretty people then you'll enjoy it!
