Gossip Girl Spinoff Postmortem

at . Comments

Why didn't the Gossip Girl spinoff get picked up? A simple case of other strong pilots out there, and the '80s theme not being fully embraced by network executives.

Here's a little Gossip Girl blurb from EW's Michael Ausiello today. Not much new here, just some scoop on why the spinoff didn't make the cut from a good source:

Q: Why did The CW kill the Gossip Girl spin-off?

A: I'm told the higher-ups never embraced the whole '80s concept. I'm also told the reason CW boss Dawn Ostroff stopped short of declaring the project dead last week was because there's a chance it could be reconceived down the road.

Yes, that's a great idea! 'Cause I think if you seperate it. The spin-off would be kinda dull..

Maybe it's still weak for a spinoff, i'm a fan of showing it parallel to the main series, inside the episodes or something...
