CW Confirms Gossip Girl Schedule For Spring 2010

at . Comments

Updating a story we told you about earlier this week, the CW officially confirmed its rumored plan to put Gossip Girl on a six-week hiatus early next year.

This is part of a strategy to air three shows - Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and the new drama Life UneXpected - in two time slots with zero repeats of any.

While six weeks with no Gossip Girl is a letdown, you can sort of the logic of the CW. And at least we have each other here at Gossip Girl Insider, right?

Bottom line? Gossip Girl will air Monday, January 11 and then return on Monday, March 8, when it will air every Monday until the end of the third season.

We believe that will take place May 17 or May 24. It has not officially been confirmed. The Monday night mid-season rotation at the CW will be as follows:

January 18 – March 1                

One Tree Hill, 8:00-9:00 pm  
Life UneXpected, 9:00-10:00 pm

March 8 - April 12

Life UneXpected, 8:00-9:00 pm
Gossip Girl, 9:00-10:00 pm

April 19 – Season Finales (May 17 or 24)

One Tree Hill, 8:00-9:00 pm
Gossip Girl, 9:00-10:00 pm

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
