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."

  • P and J and a B
  • 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."

Sorry, my English isnt so good ... I hope that chuck and Blair get back toghter, but thay have lernd from echother, and start to be more meture.
I think that Georgina is pregnet, but i dont think it is Dans baby, i think she is just useing him as a cover for the russian people.
I hope Jenny is coming back as a new person and stop being so bitchy.
As for Serenai think she is going to try it whit Dan again and i dont think that Venesa is going to forgive Dan for what he did, not that a kiss i that big a deal but because Dan and serena have thir history and that kiss may mean somthing.
just my opinion :D ^
cant wait for season 4!!

Jenny & Nate 4 EVER!!!

I love this awesome show,whatever happens to Chuck and Blair, they'll always find their way back to eachother, they are meant to be. Serena, I love her to bits, but she needs to stop searching for love in the wrong places and focus on her self. I think Jenny is the biggest bitch. Dan and Vannessa, Im not to keen on their relationship, it was nice knowing that a guy and girl can still be friends without being attracted to eachother, did'nt last for long though, and I hope Eric finds his true love. That's just my opinion, whatever the story line, Im still addicted, even got my hubby watching. Still watching season 3, cant wait for season 4...

I don't like too much third season.. I just hate the last episode, cuz I really think that blair and chuck are a great couple, they had had some troubles, but they ment to be. Serena is annoying sometimes, she's like a really inmature girl. I love the passion between her and nate, I think they are a hot couple! So I truly hope that this new season, will be full of surprises! Good ones please! Oh and i gotta say that I love gossip girl, it's a cool serie! I'm dying to see the 4th season!
the best (:

They both do something at the begginin of each episode and tehn feel about about it later and have to apologize. thats al hear from serena. Im sorry. every episode she is saying that. i love her dont get me wrong but they need to do something about her.

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.
