“Gossip Girl,” the CW’s teen soap opera, will air its sixth and final season this fall, wrapping up the series in eleven episodes.
According to US Weekly, the announcement was made on Thursday, and the network hinted in a statement on Thursday that his fall’s episode selection will be very interesting. The statement reads:
“Serena has gone off the grid, beyond even the reach of Gossip Girl. Her friends fear for the worst and hope for the best, but even they can’t imagine where they will ultimately find her.”
“If I got to write the show, it would be a very different thing. I would make Chuck Gossip Girl and I would turn my character into Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. That would be a wierd twist of events.”
He went on to tell the magazine that:
“I tend to throw something for the crew at the end of every season. What will we do? For me, it’s going to probably be more bittersweet and tough to leave New York City. And it’s definitely an end of an era. It was college for everyone really. We’ll do something for sure.”
They also asked the “Gossip Girl” star about his future, to which he replied:
“Unless Games of Thrones comes knocking at my door, I’m going to try to make a run at film for awhile. Their are pros and cons to both. With TV, you’re locked in. It’s great because you have conistency though while film is like camp.”
Mark Pedowitz, CW’s president, told reporters on Thursday that the network has yet to decide the fall episode order. He stated:
“I haven’t announced anything yet. Our goal is to run it in the fall and end it in the fall. We will make a determination on how best to do that [later]. [The creators] have been great in terms of helping us determine.”
“Gossip Girl’s” final episodes will air this fall.
