The show that was arguably already dead — its producer Josh Schwartz having killed off its burgeoning starlet, Mischa Barton, last season — has met its sandy end.

Via B&C:

Fox has bid farewell to Warner Bros. TV’s The O.C., cancelling the four-season-old series that has been struggling in the ratings this season. The sun will set for the last time on the once-hot series on Thursday, Feb. 22, in its 9-10 p.m. time slot. All original episodes will air from this Thursday through the last episode. “This feels like the best time to bring the show to its close,” says Josh Schwartz, creator and executive producer of The O.C.
