March 15 (UPI) -- Rachel Bilson and Chris Carmack had a mini O.C. reunion this week.

The 35-year-old actress and 36-year-old actor, who played Summer Roberts and Luke Ward on the Fox series, will share the screen again in Season 5 of the CMT musical drama Nashville.

"'Welcome to Nashville [expletive] ......this is how it's done in Tennessee' @realcarmack #propergreeting #nashvillecmt," Bilson captioned a photo of herself and Carmack on set.

Carmack, who portrays Will Lexington, first appeared in Season 1, and was made a series regular in Season 2. Bilson and former Empire star Kaitlin Doubleday joined the Nashville cast last week in the wake of Connie Britton's departure.

"We welcome Rachel and Kaitlin into our incredibly talented ensemble," executive producer Marshall Herskovitz said. "We fondly anticipate the second half of the season filled with surprising twists and turns that make Nashville so beloved by the fans."

Carmack played Luke in Seasons 1 and 2 of The O.C., while Bilson starred as Summer throughout the show's four-season run from 2003 to 2007. The actress had expressed interest in an official reunion in 2013.

"If everyone wanted to do it, I'm sure it would be fun," she told Us Weekly.

Nashville is presently on mid-season break.
