Gossip Girl Season 4 Spoilers: The Evolution of Blair, Jenny's Return, Georgina's Baby, Serena-Vanessa Conflict & More!

by at . Comments

Season Four is just six weeks away, and Gossip Girl executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have been hitting the interview circuit hard to promote it.

Below, we've excerpted some of the more interesting parts of recent discussions they've had about the show, and were our favorite characters are headed this season.

Here's what Josh, Stephanie and (Ed Westwick) had to say about a variety of topics and characters old and new, and what fans can expect come September 13 ...

Jenny is MIA but will be back, Savage says: "We want to keep up in the air where her character will go. Obviously she left in dramatic fashion [in Season Three]."

"We're excited about being able to create tension about her character. I don't want to say exactly which episode [she returns in], but it'll be in the first half of the year."

Eric remains a key piece of the Jenny storyline. This season, fans will continue to see him be fleshed out, Stephanie promises, especially when Jenny returns.

Ed Westwick says he likes the fact that Season Four gets underway Paris - and dropped some hints about what is to come for his character, Chuck Bass.

The future of Chair is up in the air after "Last Tango, Then Paris."

"We pick up a few months later," he said. "We're in Paris and Chuck's made his way there. Maybe a new girl, maybe some old ghosts haunting around."

"It's fun, man. It's a cool angle. We did the Hamptons thing in Season 2, as you know we're always in New York. To go to Paris, it's like a fair expression of the show."

Stephanie calls Paris "the ultimate expression of what the show is about - fashion, architecture, Blair's father, coffee, lingerie, all a part of the Gossip Girl world."

Chuck is alive but has a cane, as promotional photos show, and we will discover that he may have not gotten the best medical care possible after he was found.

Clemence Poesy will be in multiple episodes, and her character, Eva, is "extremely likable" and "very different than any of the other characters on the show."

"She comes in as a real outsider to the world," Savage says of the European beauty. "Not just like Upper East Side versus Brooklyn but to the whole culture."

"She’s a bit of an innocent who gets schooled pretty hard when she arrives."

The evolution of Blair Waldorf will reach a new level this season, Schwartz says: "You know, her being at NYU was like throwing a fish far, far out of water."

"I think [now that she's at Columbia] you’ll see Blair with her power back, with her swagger back. Back in her game, but still troubled by thoughts of Mr. Bass."

"The Chuck-Blair relationship, whether they’re together or not - which I’m not going to reveal either way - will always be a huge drive to the show emotionally."

Georgina says she's pregnant with Dan's child ... but is she really? All Savage will confirm is that the baby is real: "Georgina's baby is Georgina's baby." she said.

"You will learn all as the episodes unfold." Savage says there is no "baby fake-out" and promises we'll "be seeing more of Georgina Sparks in more ways than one."

Steph also revealed that V will be back from Haiti and involved in the plot, saying: "Vanessa is back from Haiti and she's definitely going to be in the Dan story."

"There's a lot of humor coming from young people trying to deal with this unexpected situation, but there's also a lot of underlying heart and emotion, too."

  • Blonde Georgina Pic!

Good luck making sense of this!

Serena's conflict with Vanessa and with herself will complicate her relationships, plural. "Serena [is trying to choose] between Nate and Dan," Schwartz says.

"Serena left in a place of being a little unsure of who she really wanted to be with and that is a question that Blair asks her at the beginning of the first episode."

"[She says] you can’t go back to New York without making a choice. Who knows what guys are thinking, but what’s in your heart and who do you really want to be with?"

"That’s something that will occupy quite a bit of Serena’s time as the year goes on."

Katie Cassidy's Juliet will cause tension and go head-to-head with Serena and Blair, Steph says, noting that this role required a certain type of actress.

"We were concerned about casting because [we didn't know] who we could add to the mix that [would] feel like she’s on the same level as those actors," she said.

"Katie seemed like she’d be able to nail it and she’s doing a great job."

(anyone remember the masquerade ball episode? it was adorable) and its so obvious jenny really likes and adores nate. deep down they both really care about one another come on guys get together!

Personally I really liked the new Chuck and I hated to see him destroyed; however, I am excited to see him go to war with Blair, she deserves everything she is about to get and more. I actually don't care if Jenny ends up with Nate or Chuck, I think both would be really great story lines, and I think Serena and Blair have worn out their chances with all the current guys, so I am looking forward to some new faces! Death to Juliet, she is no good! Poor Nate :(

If Chuck and Blair don't get back together I'm actually going to cry. And I'll just not buy the boxset because I literally LIVE for their storyline.

Wow okay CHUCKANDBLAIR, BLAIRANDCHUCK. there really is no need to seperate their names. THEY ARE MEANT FOR EACHOTHER! Yes, this new girl shakes up the chuckandblair storyline a bit, adds more to OMFG factor, and definitely sets up the show for some bitchy blair action (LOVIN IT. Blair is such a strong character, i really love that about her), but when it all comes down to it, Chuck and Blair are meanntttt for each other! and even though Chuck has this little distraction for now, he's neverr going to be able to walk away from Blair, and vice versa. So they definitely need to get back together in season 4. its just unnatural right now. I really like Serena with Nate, and I also really like Dan and Serena. But I hate it when she's not with ONE of them. I'd be happy if she ends up with Nate, and I'd be equally happy if she ends up with Dan. But right now Vanessa and that bitch Juliette are in the way, and it shouldn't be like that. Serena needs to be with one of them. end of story. No more Lily and Rufus drama. Cmon. we need one steady drama-free couple on this show. We've had enough of the Lily and Rufus problems. they're great together, just leave it at that! On the Jenny subject, I hated her soo much last season. She was a selfish, troubled, lying, homewrecking bitch. If she comes back, she better nottt try to steal anyones man, and stay out of the way of drama for me to even think about liking her again. BUT I LOVE GOSSIP GIRL, THIS SHOW IS SO ADDICTING!

OMG, I just finished watching season three and I have so many opinons for the next season... CHUCK and BLAIR MUST get back together or i will scream... He was about to propose and then jenny messed it all up, my heart broke when i saw his face fall. Serena needs some balance she is all over the place atm, She CAN NOT get with Dan, they share a sibling and there parents are married (THATS GROSS!!!) Serena looked great with Nate but he is getting a little boring, Still amazingly sexy btw. Serena and Carter had so much chemistry and I would love to see them back together. Jenny needs to clean up her act and fix that old dirty mop she calls hair. I loved Jenny in season 1 & 2 but now she is selling drugs and trying to steal nate What a BITCH. Dan and Vanessa are perfect for each other but in season four they need to work somme stuff out, they should be more like there original characters and the realastionship would be better. Rufus and Lily are so BORING stop giving them so much air time. BTW i dont think gorgeinas baby is dan's just some random guys or possible Scotts???
All I really want in season four is Chuck and Blair to get back together if they dont i will cry, complain, and stop watching the show. -Miss Overcast xoxo

OMG!!!! Blair and chuck better get together, if they don't im going to get sooo maddd. I think all stop watching the show.. .. And yes please I hope if jenny does come back this season her hair is fixed lol.. And dan has to stop screwing other people over.. I would like to see more of vanessa in the show being in power or becoming good friends with Blair .... Nate has to stop screwing every girl that passes by him and start doing something interesting, he is really boring!!!! but hot... and jenny , i liked her in the beginning but she is really a big sneak and i really do hope she doesn't come back at all.. serina, don't get me started, everyone has to agree when you started to watch gossip girl, we all loved serina and hated Blair, now I adore Blair and hate serina, I think Serina character needs less drama , but enough to give us some action..like how Blair gives a lot of action.. Serina she is pretty, but thats all she got.. I hope Blair and chuck get bakk together!!!!!!!!! p.s. the fashion in this show is amazing!!!! but Blair at times need to calm it down, cause she is making it look cheap and ugly.. even serina sometimes look to skinny or too white, or not pretty...

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

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
