    The former costars, who just launched an O.C. rewatch podcast, revealed that they've actually been talking to the cast about getting back together.

    "I know we talked about definitely getting together personally, as a reunion...all of us getting together. I think we have spoken to some already; everyone's on board for that," Rachel told ET.

    "A reboot would be awesome. I think that's in the hands of [creators and executive producers] Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. There's still a ways to go, so maybe they'll figure it out! That'd be fun," Rachel said.

    "Never say never!" Melinda added.

    This isn't even the first time that Rachel has mentioned a revival of the series. Earlier this year, she shared similar sentiments about a reboot.

    "I would be open to a reboot. It's such a fond memory for me, and I am so grateful for it," Rachel told E! News.

    On top of that, her costar Mischa Barton previously expressed interest in continuing the series.

    "I think there are ways it could happen, for sure. I mean, in this industry, there's a way to do everything. If you really wanna get The O.C. back, of course we could, of course there's a way. Characters can slightly change or diverge or come back as a cousin," Mischa told ET.

    With so many castmates on board, it's definitely sounding as if a reboot of The O.C. could be in our future!
